I, too had a fuel leak _ Gardenline 139CC green mower.

published

When I finished mowing and parked the mower all fuel leaked to ground. Took mower to the local guys in Shellharbour who wanted NOTHING to do with Gardenline products. Ben from HiQual Mowers in Myall Way APR came to the rescue. He flushed the carbi and so far so good. Thanks Ben.

ALDI Petrol Mower 139cc

published

This mower does a pretty good job, it also starts easily and runs well, the grass catcher work well too. Never had a problem with it and have been using it for over 2 years. Excellent value for the price, only paid $139.00 for it. Not too noisy either. Highly recommended.

Going well so far

published

I got this in Aldi's special buys and despite my initial reservations, it is running well. Of course these are mass produced and just pumped out, so I made a few adjustments, to idy and tune it up before regular use. At First I thought it was too cheaply made to be any good but having used it for two years now I think its quite OK for the cheap price

Not too bad for a "no brand" mower

published

Got this in one of the Aldi special buys. Aldi is always a bit of a gamble for things like this but I read reviews saying that this was quite OK and I have found that true. For a no brand machine, it has been very reliable (two years now) and apart from some dubious quality metals here and there, I am happy enough with it. It always starts (need to prime it) and does a good cut. The blades aren't the best but at all works and is good for the price paid

happy customer

published

really very good..very happy with it..but hard to get new blades. I don't find it heavy at all quite the opposite very light for me and I am old. little bit hard to start on cold mornings usually leave it in the sun for an hour or so seems to do the trick.

Heavy and not enough power, it has no throttle.

published

I can not cut at number one position anymore, the mower get stuck, not enough power to cut. Blades are sharp. Getting the mower up hill is hardwork, it is heavy and not self propelled. If your garden is flat it would be easier.
To start mower is easy although no throttle switch only on and off. Fuel lne kept coming off had to get clamps to keep it on. It has recently stopped half way through mowing lawn. Have dismantled. It needs special blades for 2015 model. I Can not find parts manual for engine part numbers.

Works With Some Irritations

published

Cheap mower from Aldi. It has good and bad points to it.
Let me say the construction at first seems reasonably robust but closer inspection reveals cheap plastics and flimsy parts here and there. Much like a cheap pushbike.
It does start easily every time and does a fairly good job of cutting and I like the larger wheels - I have a big area to mow. Fuel use is OK too. It's just hard to see this lasting into the future like Victas and Rovers.
Time will tell!

21" $399 self propelled dead in warranty

published

Assembly was easy. Mower started 1st pull everytime until one day 2 years in it stopped & warranty repairer says catastrophic engine failure rendering it useless.
Shame really as I thought briggs & stratton engines (675 model) were pretty good as there are millions in use.
Self propel was good.
Height adjustment was always too high for my liking meaning we had to mow more often.
Throttle cable near engine required adjusting several times due to weak construction.
Still not a bad mower for the price.
Now to see what Aldi will do as a replacement or refund with the letter from repairer stating it is cactus.
Edit to add: Nice to report back that Aldi refunded the whole purchase price of $399 with no hassle.

Cheap simple mower

published

A little bit hesitant at first but mower was easy to assemble and get working. Easy to start and solid cutting blade does a good job. We were looking for a light easy to manage mower and this is perfect for the job. Mower runs at one speed and is quiet. We have used it on a large lawn area.
Only negative part is the catcher. Quite a small capacity and needs changing often.

great mower

published

I'm a lady and even I can use it I love it starts everytime first Pull easy as and light to handle the catcher is easy to replace and remove and it has a good selection of height ranges so that you don't chop everything out of your grass... not overly expensive that works every bit as good as the expensive ones love it

Self propelled and powerful

published

We bought the self propelled mower. I think 350 maybe 399 not too sure. It is powerful and the self propel works very well, you still get a great workout, well on our property anyway.
It is very heavy as a woman its a bit of effort to lift (we have yet to put a ramp going into our shed so have to lift it in and and out). Great mower much better than the victa mower from bunnings, we had to have that repaired 3 times over a 2 year period. No issues yet with this mower

Great Mower and Easy to Use.

published

Great mower and easy to use especially the self propelled feature. Makes mowing the lawns a breeze. Have been using the mower for over three years off and on and it hasn't missed a beat. Have also tried both the catcher and mulching options and both work well. Is able to cope with slight slopes and uneven ground.

Not amazing but assume for the price

published

It is a simple 4 stroke mower.
I only mow about every 1-2 months, so it took a bit to get started, but when I put some high octane petrol in it the other day and it when like a beast.
This is perfect for around the back yard.
I would give it 5 stars if it has a self drive function.

Cheap And Good

published

First time buying petrol mower from Aldi. Just thought to give it a try, as the price was too hard to resist. At the end of the day, it does the job nicely, of course you get what you paid for, but I'm pretty happy with my purchase as the 4 stroke petrol mower had no issues until now. Use it twice or once a month regularly.

Not Happy Owner

published

mower at first refused to start -rang listed service agent- man answered advised they were no longer-an agent due to no help from Aldi -- spare parts from China were hopeless--advised to give the mower a good hard shake this worked mower now starts and cuts well-- plastic catcher was 2 man project to assemble.
I feel as if I have purchased a well designed poorly assembled mower with no back up service --eventually will be junk

Gardenline 190cc Self Propelled Mower

published

Purchased the mower from Aldi in August 2016 for $400.. have used it about 10 times and now the lower handles have started to split (frame is quite thin and weak). Today I contacted Gardenline directly about replacing it (considering it has a 3 year warranty). A lady answered the phone with "Hello".. i replied "Hi is this Gardeline" she says Yeah lol (good customer service so far.) I explained the scenario and what i was after. She took my details and said the part was on back order from China and should arrive in about 3 weeks. I was never asked once about date of purchase or any receipt numbers, just the model number.
Not holding my breath!! Will keep yous posted..
