Summary

Mountfield Electress 38 Li Review

The Mountfield Electress 38 Li is an electric cordless lawn mower weighing just over 12kg and is powered by two 4.0Ah batteries. It has a 38cm cutting blade, a 40 litre hybrid grass collection bag and is designed for medium lawns up to 350m². There are 6 cutting heights available that range from 25mm to 75mm and the mower comes with a two year manufacturer’s warranty.

This Mountfield Electress 38 Li is identical to the Mountfield Electress 34 Li apart from the larger deck and larger grass collection bag. Therefore, for a full in-depth review, please see my review of this slightly smaller Mountfield on the link below.

There is also a handy table below that clearly shows the differences between all three Elecrtress models.

Should You Buy This Model?

Mountfield Electress 38 Conclusion

I would have to recommend this model to anyone who needs a relatively versatile lawn mower without all the frills and has a larger sized lawn up to 350m². Mountfield mowers (owned by STIGA) are well built and use higher quality components compared to some of its competitors. Whilst this is not designed to be a premium mower, Mountfield have managed to retain quality, whilst keeping the price to an entry level machine.

As I said above, this is the largest of the Electress range with a deck size of 38cm. Just remember there is no rear roller or mulching option with all the mowers in the Electress range. If you are looking for both a rear roller and mulching ability, Mountfield have you covered with their Princess cordless range.

Conclusion

Within the Freedom 100 series, there are three lawn mowers, all with different area sizes in mind. The largest of these models, is this Electress 38 Li, which is a reliable and powerful lawn mower designed for everyday use in the larger garden. What’s more it will not break the bank. While it doesn’t have as many features as some of the more high end models, such as mulching or a rear roller, it does provide you with everything you need to have a nicely maintained lawn with very little effort.
