All of this is made even better by one of the most competitive prices on the market. Many mower in this size and power range cost a lot more money, so those seeking great value for money when buying a new cordless lawn mower will certainly want to consdier this product.
Let’s take a closer look to see exactly what the LM G34 has to offer:

Battery and Motor
The LM G34 is equipped with a 40V 2.5Ah Samsung lithium-ion battery while the motor uses Torque Sense technology, resulting in incredible cutting power and battery performance. There aren’t many better lithium-ion batteries in this price range!
Packed with a fast charger, the battery offers a lengthy runtime of 45 minutes, making it suitable for medium and large lawns up to 350m2. This fast charger certainly lives up to the name, charging the battery to 100% in just 75 minutes – which is even more impressive considering the longer runtime it offers.
Furthermore, you can charge to 80% in just 45 minutes, which is great for those situations where you are only doing a quick mow. There is also a battery level indicator so you know exactly how much charge is left, meaning you can pause for a quick charge mid-mow if needed.
The 34cm steel cutting blade is standard for a good cordless mower. The length is suitable for medium and larger gardens, quickly cutting through the lawn as you each pass, although you may find you need to make a few more passes on those extra-large lawns.
A great quality blade, it produces a tidy cut across the grass, ensuring a nice finish while encouraging healthy regrowth. It can be sharpened as needed, although this won’t be necessary for some time as the blade is seriously sharp to begin with.
Offering seven cutting heights ranging from 25mm to 75mm, the LM G34 provides an excellent range of positions for the blade, making it easy to remove the necessary length from the grass.
Lower settings are good for creating a close cut finish, which is a good idea during the spring and summer months where the grass is at peak growing. The higher settings are good for the first cut of the year or when your grass is longer and you don’t want to cut too much at once, so the settings are useful for both hands on and low-maintenance gardeners.
All heights are adjusted through a central lever on the cutting deck, allowing you to easily switch the height as you are mowing, which is handy for lawns with grass at varying lengths.
Weighing 14.5kg, the mower is not the lightest cordless model on the market, although it remains easy to operate for most people. It is designed for medium and large lawns, so it is naturally going to be larger and heavier than some mowers but nothing that most people will struggle to move.
The large wheels certainly help with this, making it much easier to manoeuvre around the lawn, even on sloped areas. There are padded ergonomic handles too, which further improve comfort and avoid feeling fatigued from moving it around for too long.
Rear Roller, Side Combs, and Grass Collection Bag
The LM G34 comes with some nice additional features, including a rear roller and side combs, letting you get that perfect finish each mow. Side combs are handy for mowing on lawns with edging or fences nearby, with the cutting deck getting closer to the edges to ensure no grass is missed.
Rear rollers let you produce an attractive striped effect on the lawn, so if you love pristine finish to the lawn then this feature is certainly welcome. It is easy to use – just pull the lawn mower backwards to create a stripe, alternating at regular passes to produce the effect across the entire lawn.
As it is designed for medium and large lawns the mower is likely to collect a lot of clippings, so it is good to see there is a sizable 35L grass collection bag to gather this all up. The capacity means it is unlike you will need to stop and empty the mower until you are finished, resulting in less time emptying and more time mowing.
Of course, sometimes there are more clippings than normal (such as when the lawn hasn’t been mowed in a few weeks), so on those rare instances where you might fill the collection bag you will know immediately thanks to the full level indicator.
The ergonomic soft grip handles fold down onto the mower deck, significantly reducing the size to make it suitable for storage. You can store this in a shed or garage without taking much space, so if you are short on storage you won’t need to worry.
