Cobra: Lawn stripes retain their popularity with gardeners

by | Feb 24, 2017 | News, Products | 0 comments

Lawn stripes, that quintessentially British sign of a well-manicured garden, remain popular although no longer necessarily in rigid straight lines, and to capitalise on this the UK?s fastest growing brand of lawnmowers has launched two new cylinder machines.

With a walk-behind electric and a hand mower, the Cobra cylinders will help gardeners maintain fitness whilst administering TLC to their lawns. Various lawn competitions all demonstrate the British affection for stripes with a fast-growing interest in cutting lawns in intricate patterns.

With altogether 115 machines in its range, Cobra is the UK?s fastest growing garden equipment brand and the new cylinder mowers are just part of the brand expansion for 2017.

Hand powered machines remain popular and the HM38C offers a 15? (38cm) cutting width. Split rollers ensure beautiful stripes and the five hardened steel blades can be quickly and easily adjusted to four different cutting heights.

Weighting in at just 8.5kg, the HM38C is light and easily manoeuvrable allowing those intricate cutting patterns to be achieved.

For gardeners preferring a mains electric system the new Cobra CM32E will meet all requirements. The 12.5 (32cm) machine with its powerful 400W motor, 12m cable and four-blade diamond ground steel blades provides a superb finish. It offers a simple height of cut adjustment between 12mm and 42mm. The split rear roller ensures clear stripes. It weighs just 10kg and is easily manoeuvrable around beds and edges. It has a capacious grass bag ensuring fewer trips to the compost heap.

Both the hand and electric machines are easily stored. The CM32E is priced at ?99.99 and the HM38C is ?54.99.

The new cylinder mowers are available from Cobra?s nationwide dealer network. To find your nearest stockist visit
