Bosch Rotak 34 Ergoflex Rotary Lawn Mower Review

I picked up the Bosch Rotak 34 Ergoflex rotary lawn mower today and having just completed its first lawn mowing session I’m very happy with the results and my purchase of this mower as it was a breeze to use and the lawn looks great.

Our back garden is not very large at all so I had been using a Flymo to keep it trimmed, however this was causing problems because unless your lawn is 100% flat (no bumps or dips) then a Flymo will loose its cushion of air leave you with a bald patch in the lawn. The Bosch Rotak 34 however has no problems in this department as it has wheels and allows you to very easily change the length of grass to cut too (a choice of 7 settings).

Ergoflex system

The Ergoflex system that Bosch have used on the Rotak 34 (Ergoflex) mower makes this lawn mower very easy to handle and provides the user with full control.

Ergoflex Control System

Ergoflex Control System

The “Ergo-grip” is a multigrip control system that allows simple operation of the lawn mower in varying situations, visually and ergonomically it actually reminds me of a mountain bike fitted with bar ends.

Powerdrive Motor System

The Powerdrive 1400 watt motor at the heart the Rotak 34 packs a punch and made light work of the overgrown grass today. The PowerDrive motor system is a powerful and intelligent system that is designed to keep the mower working at optimum levels at all times.

Grass Combes

The Rotak 34 has a pair of unique grass combes fitted to either side, & the wheels are slightly inset from these combs which allows you to mow right up to the edge of a wall or fence without any problems.

Using the Bosh Rotak 34 ErgoFlex

A very easy to operate mower. The Ergo-grip system with 4 buttons will offer you a choice of ways to hold the mower to ensure you have the most control and are comfortable. The first time you plug in and spin up the mower you will realise how quiet it is in operation, you will then find out how easy it is to manoeuvre due to how light it is (10.5 Kg actually). You will really notice the PowerDrive system kick in when you are working on long thick grass. The end result is a sharp cut with an even finish & the grass combs give edges a very professional look.


There isn’t really anything negative to say about the Bosch Rotak 34 Ergoflex. At this price range you will have a hard time trying to find something to match the Rotak 34 Ergoflex on performance, ease of use and features.
