Einhell GC-HM 30 Manual Hand Push Lawnmower Review – 30 cm Cutting Width

Summary

Einhell GC-HM 30 Manual Hand Push Lawnmower Review

The Einhel GC-HM 30 is a lightweight push lawn mower weighing a mere 6.7kg which is perfect for small to medium sized lawns. Using its ball-bearing mowing spindle, I was able to precisely set the required cutting height using its ‘infinitely’ adjustable cutting height facility.  The mower rarely struggles to move through the grass, even those lawns which are on the longer side, due to the remarkable range of cutting heights available which resulted in an outstanding cut and finish. The lawn mower is a sturdy piece of equipment and perfect for those neighbourhoods who demand clean, quiet and environment-friendly mowing.

Main Features

  • Wide cutting width (30 cm) for a speedy finish when cutting the lawn.
  • Strong and light weight hand mower.
  • Large 16 Litre collection bag for grass cuttings.
  • Wide range of cutting height settings: 15mm to 42 mm.
  • Five robust steel blades for defined cutting.

Blades

The mower comes equipped with five high quality steel blades to give you a neat and defined finish.

Height Adjustment

Cutting Diameter

This cutting width for this mower is 30cm which is quite standard for most push mowers and is ideal for gardeners with small to medium lawns.

Roller

The mower has a plastic roller of 45 cm diameter which is most suitable for lawns up to 150 m² in size. The large wheels are kind to your lawn and make the mower easier to push on unlevel ground.  The back roller produces some stripes as well as levelling out minor bumps.

Grass box capacity

The Einhell GC-HM 3 mower comes with a 16 litre mesh collection bag which is easy to attach and detach to make emptying easier. I found that the 16 litre basket offered plenty of storage.

Practicalities

I was able to easily assemble this mower within 15 to 20 minutes and found that the build quality was excellent.  The mower’s compact size made it very simple to manoeuvre this mower around beds and other garden features.  The handle unclips with no problems so that the mower can be folded down for storage in a small space or the back of the car.

Should You Buy This Model?

In comparison to the Fiskars Staysharp plus reel mower, The Einhell GC-HM 30 mower offers fantastic value for money and in my opinion one of the best hand push manual lawnmowers on the market. With its sturdy frame, it is extremely quiet to push owing to its ball-bearing mowing spindle. It will even help to lower your garden emissions as well give you great satisfaction when mowing your lawn. Should you need to use it for a longer period, then the mower is simple to operate, never feeling too heavy or clogging with grass. The only time it will struggle is with long, thick, or wet grass, which is the same outcome with the majority of push mowers!
