The Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower features a fast charging 40 volt 2.5Ah battery that provides around 35 minutes of run-time and is suitable for lawns up to 400m². The 7 height adjustments on the Yard Force 37cm can be set between 25mm and 75mm and comes supplied with a 40 litre grass box. The Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower is lightweight at just 15.5kg and has a compact 37cm cutting width.  

Yard Force have a range of cordless mowers from the compact 32cm deck to larger 46cm deck size allowing you to choose the best option for your lawn. This review is of the Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower, model number LM G37/25, and is classed as a mid-sized deck for lawns up to 400m².

You may not have heard the brand Yard Force before, however their mowers have been around in the UK for many years and now have a great reputation for quality, support and value for money.

In this review of the Yard Force 37cm (LM G37/25) I am not only going tell you what you get with this mower, but I will also highlight the good and not so good features so you know if this mower is best suited to you and your lawn.

There is no doubt that this mower is great value for money, and on paper looks like it can compete well with better known brands, but is it all it’s cracked up to be? Well let’s find out.

First off, I can tell you that I was so impressed with this mower’s build quality. It felt as good as any of the Bosch mowers I have tested and the power performance seemed to match that of my highly regarded Worx WG779E.2.

Remember Yard Force don’t just produce lawn mowers, and have become a formidable brand in the garden equipment market. They also make impressive pressure washers, chain saws, hedge trimmers and other equipment, all of which share a common interchangeable battery.

Ok, so enough about how good Yard Force are as a brand, let’s now see just how good this actual Yard Force 37cm (LM G37/25) mower is.

Power System

Yard Force 37cm LM G37/25 Power System

This is a powerful 40V motor powered by a Samsung 2.5Ah Li-Ion Battery. It charges in 75 minutes and will deliver around 35 minutes of cutting time.

As mentioned above this mower comes with either a 2.5A battery or a 4Ah battery. The 2.5Ah battery would be my preferred choice as it is compatible with all other Yard Ford cordless power tools. Why have Yard Force chosen a Samsung battery? Well, because Samsung lead the way in Lithium Ion Battery technology for both performance and reliability.

The 35 min run-time combined with the 37cm deck will allow a lawn of up to 400m² to be cut on a single charge. This compares well to the like of Bosch with very similar charge and run-times. It’s worth noting that this Yard Force 37cm (LM G37/25) comes with a large 40 Litre grass collection box that helps to reduce the number of stops. This mower also seems to compact the grass cuttings into the collection box so well, you’ll be surprised just how much grass comes out of each load.

The power of this mower is so impressive and it never felt like it experienced any challenges when cutting the lawn. Yes, depending on the length of the grass you do have to be careful not to set the mower on a too low setting – but this is common with all cordless mowers. If you have left the lawn to grow too long, always start at a higher setting and then work your way down.

A great feature of the Yard Force 37cm (LM G37/25) is its “Torque Sense Technology”. This feature detects when the conditions are more challenging and increases the power, then reduces power again for normal cutting conditions. Why is this so good? Well, there are two main benefits, an increase in power when the going gets tough, helps to eliminate the need to keep adjusting the height of the mower to deal with longer patches of grass. Secondly, this technology helps to extend the life of the battery as the mower will use less power during normal cutting.


Assembly

No tools are required for the assembly of this lawn mower, as it is simply the case of screwing the handles together at your desired height.

The instructions are clear, the diagrams are well drawn, however assembly is really simple so will most probably not be needed.

The user manual can be viewed in the user manual section below.

Once assembled simply charge the battery, insert it into the mower, and you are ready to go.


Blades

Yard Force 34cm Cordless Blades

This Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower model has a single 37cm steel blade. As mentioned above Yard Force produce smaller and larger deck sizes, however this 37cm model is the middle ground and seems to hit a sweet spot. This Yard Force 37cm (LM G37/25) is designed for medium lawns up to 400 metres squared, however will perform equally well on smaller lawns as long as you do not have very narrow strips that need to be mowed.

Also why not purchase an extra battery, allowing this mower to cut even larger lawns?

The metal blades on this mower are of a good quality, sharp and give a very precise cut. Replacement blades are freely available and reasonably priced. With metal blades you also have the option of sharpening the blade, this can be carried out by any competent DIY person.

Below is a comparison table comparing the different Yard Force lawn mowers, so you can clearly see which one would suit you and your lawn best.

Height Adjustment

Yard Force 37cm LM G37/25 Height

Just like its smaller brother the Yard Force 34cm, this 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower has 7 cutting heights that range from 25mm to 75mm and can be adjusted from a centrally mounted lever. Some mowers that I have tested are difficult to adjust and have less cutting heights, this is not the case with this Yard Force helped by the lever being centrally mounted. The height adjustment is easy, the notches are clearly defined and all 4 wheels are adjusted at the same time from the single lever.

Cutting Diameter

As already mentioned, the cutting diameter of 37cm is the middle ground and will suit varying sizes of lawn. This deck size combined with the 35min run-time will enable this mower to cut a lawn up to 400m² with one charge. Of course you can purchase a separate battery should you want to increase the run-time.

Although this mower is designed for medium sized lawns it is still compact enough to be easily manoeuvred around the garden. The foldable handles and collapsible grass box also contribute to reducing the amount of storage space, making it easier to be transported (the video above shows just how practical this Yard Force mower is).

In summary, the 37cm deck size is not too small or not too large and can be used on a wide range of lawn sizes – getting the job done quickly without compromising on manoeuvrability.


Roller (stripes)

Yard Force 37cm LM G37/25 Roller

Great news, this Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower does have a rear roller. This is an integrated rear roller, in addition to the large rear wheels (some mowers only have the roller) giving you the benefits of a traditional British striped lawn, whilst the rear wheels keep this mower nimble and stable around the garden.

Don’t like a striped lawn? No problem, Yard Force also provide this mower without the rear roller. Click here for details.


Grass box capacity

Yard Force 34cm Cordless Grass BoxThe grass box on this Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower is slightly larger at 40L, than its smaller brother, to accommodate the larger deck size. The construction of this grass collection box is one of the best I have seen due to the hard plastic top and base, and the quality of the cloth sides. The excellent air flow of this grass box allows exceptional collection of the grass cuttings and compaction within the box.

The collection box has an indicator flap that lets you know when it is full, this is something that is missing on so many other mowers.

The grass box is easy to attach and remove and has a handy well-balanced handle on the top, which helps to assist in emptying the cuttings into the compost heap.

In summary, the grass box can’t be faulted, the cloth material not only allows it to be folded flat but is of such good quality it should last for many years (weak spot in many other brands).


Practicalities

Yard Force 37cm LM G37/25 Practicalities

Like all cordless lawn mowers, the practicalities of not being tethered by a power cord or having the maintenance of a petrol mower, makes this mower a great and practical choice.

The deck of this Yard Force 37cm (LM G37/25) also has grass combs on both sides pulling the grass into the path of the blades, this helps to reduce the amount of edge trimming that needs to be done after the lawn has been mowed. This truly is an edge to edge mower, normally found in higher end mowers/brands.

This Yard Force mower has a small foot print, soft grip foldable handles and grass box helping to reduce the amount of storage space needed in your shed or garage.

As mentioned above, assembly is quick and easy on this lightweight (15.5kg) and well built mower.

Safety Features

Yard Force 34cm Cordless Mower Safety

Cordless lawn mowers are by their nature safer than corded or petrol options. Yard Force give detailed instructions and safety recommendations in the instruction manual, and provided that you follow these you do not need to have any safety concerns.

This Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower has 3 safety features to ensure the mower is not started accidentally. The first is the OPC (Operator Presence Control) meaning that if the starter handle is let go, the mower and blade stop immediately. The second is the safety starter switch that must be pressed at the same time as the starter handle, otherwise the mower will not start. The last but not least safety feature is the removable safety key. Please note that all these safety features can be found on most modern cordless lawn mowers.


Mulching

The Yard Force 37cm Cordless Rotary Lawn Mower does not have the ability to mulch the grass cuttings.
