up to 250m² 30-35cm (12-14in)
250 - 500m² 35 - 45cm (14-18in)
Over 500m² over 45cm (18in)
Their main disadvantage comes from the trailing flex
which can get tangled around plant / containers etc. and poses
a hazard in its own right if cut by the mower. Electric
mowers should always be used with an RCD and should not be used
on wet Grass.
They are also limited in their power and are rarely available
over 1500W, if you require a larger, more powerful machine,
then a petrol mower is a better choice.

Electric mowers are best suited to smaller, more compact garden as then the flex does not need to be so long, they are also less likely to overheat than if used over an extensive area. If your lawn is larger than about 140 square meters or has some areas that are quite a distance from the nearest power source, then you ought to consider a petrol version as the amount of cable starts to get unwieldy.
