My experience with the mower has been mostly positive. The packaging and care of the Swardman is similar to opening up an Apple product. My expectations for this mower were extremely high. The fact that my expectations were met is a true testament to the quality of craftsmanship in this machine. My first true use of the mower was to use the rotary brush cartridge to clean and stripe my Dad’s artificial turf. It handled this job flawlessly. The turf looks brand new and when I went to using the grass catcher, the brush was able to pick up anything that was put in its path. By the way, it is very easy to replace the cartridges. I then used the mower with the 6 blade reel to take my lawn down to .25” HOC. My lawn is not yet completely leveled but the front and rear rollers made mowing the uneven spots pretty easy. The mower is so easy to manipulate that I didn’t notice how full the catcher was getting. Once I finally emptied it, it was probably around 40 lbs of material that was removed from the lawn. This machine is beautiful. The paint and design of the mower itself is a sight to behold.
I’ve only had the Swardman Edwin 2.0 with 22-inch cutting width for a few months now and haven’t had a chance to use my verticutter attachment yet. So far, I love it! I mow at ¾” and it cuts great both on my leveled back lawn and sloped front lawn. It is easy to set the blade to bed knife. Thanks to the mower’s design it is also easy to change out parts when needed. What more could you ask for in a mower?
I have bought a Swardman Edwin with a 55 cm cutting width to deal with 1600 sqm of Agrostis stolonifera perennial grass from the Poaceae family which my father in law and I have seeded in our gardens. There are two things that impress me about this mower. The first one is the very high quality: every single component looks like having been designed to last and to be nice looking. I love
the possibility of converting the mower into a scarifier or a verticutter in one minute. The second one is its quietness; I used to own other mowers, both rotary and cylindric, and none of them was close enough to be as quite as this one. You are not going to worry anymore about bothering your neighbours. Swardman is overall an outstanding product. I’m very happy to have purchased it!
I can really tell it is a pleasure to use the Swardman Edwin on my lawn. Having a busy and stressful job, mowing the lawn and creating striped patterns, is actually a good meditation and stress relief. Actually the joy is even doubled… since the reward comes with the view. Our family has never spent more time in the garden than last summer. And besides the good weather, the look of the garden and lawn had not to be underestimated.
We wanted to buy a lawnmower which will help to reach the perfect English-style lawn so that we feel like we have a private golf resort in our home. After some research we knew that we want to buy a cylinder lawn mower, because of the perfect cut and the stripes on the lawn. During the search we found the Swardman Edwin and we fell in love right away! Outstanding design with perfect engineering solutions with an exchangeable cartridge system and easy manipulation is exactly what we need! During the 1.5-year use we learned that Edwin was the perfect choice! And least but not last the after sales support with regular maintenance, helpdesk and aftermarket accessories from Swardman is excellent!
I have had my mower shipped and it was so easy to put it into operation. Mowing with it is a pleasure. The results of mowing are perfect and the surface is smooth. Pure joy to look at! There are no unevenness on the surface or visible individual cuts. The exchange of cartridges from the mowing cylinder to the scarifier is very fast and simple and works perfectly. All felts and old grass are swept straight into the grass box. The Swardman Edwin cylinder mower, with its 3 cassettes, is destined for complete lawn care and above all for the perfect mowing results. Thank you for your fair and friendly conduct.
If you want a perfect lawn, you will definitely need Edwin. In just 3 months, our lawn is perfect and everyone who comes to see us comments on its quality. With any other solution, you have to count on cutting grass 2 to 3 times a day or use two lawn mowers. Edwin handles everything – it is great for cutting, verticutting and combing.
I really appreciate my sophisticated cylinder mower, which I have been using for a year without noticing any flaws. The Swardman blogposts are educational and fun to read. The condition of my lawn, which had been completely destroyed by snow mold, has dramatically improved with the use of the cylinder mower and with the application of the knowledge gained at the lawn care courses by Swardman. There is always room for improvement when it comes to lawn care, but Edwin sure is a great helper.
I was pleasantly surprised to discover the Swardman's Edwin cylinder mower. It is very well designed, made of metal parts and equipped with a reliable and quiet Kawasaki motor. It is a pleasure to mow with it and with its interchangeable cartridges it allows you to do a complete maintenance of your lawn without needing any other machines.
I have been using Edwin for two seasons now; I was using a manual reel lawn mower. Therefore, I was not expecting any significant improvement in the lawn quality or the ease of cutting. However, I waw very surprised and the quality is much better. On the other hand, I have to say that Edwin is not a lawn mower for irregular mowing. If you let your grass grow too long, it will cause problems. You can cut with Edwin in essentially any weather condition. Because it moves on reels, it does not groove your lawn. So I am satisfied. What I would like to especially point out is Swardman’s service approach. Any time there is a problem, they respond immediately. A technician arrives and fixes everything.
My goal was to have a perfect lawn that makes a real garden and I was able to achieve this with a reel mower; therefore, I decided to buy a modern and quality mower from Swardman.
I would like to thank you for quickly handling my request to repair my lawn mower. I was very happy not only with your customer service, but with the actual quality and the professional approach taken by your service technician. I have been reassured that buying your lawn mower was the right choice. I wish you and your team all the best.
First of all, I would like to thank Mr. Šena, who created – and very well so – Swardman. His Edwin is, in my opinion, the best reel lawn mower that I have seen. I bought Edwin because I was not happy with my reel mower (the grass was not evenly cut). True, I was briefly using a robotic mower, but that was the biggest mistake in my lawn-keeping history. With a reel mower, you truly have to attend to your lawn, but the result is worth it. If you use a reel mower, you have to cut your garden at least twice a week; I do it every Monday and Thursday and it is great. A reel lawn mower makes everyone a law expert who will never be happy with his or her lawn. It makes you want to constantly improve your lawn. Finally, I would like to wish Swardman all the best, especially a lot of happy paying customers.
I have liked the Edwin project since the very beginning. And I was only waiting for Edwin to go on sale. I have a landscaping company and therefore, I will use not only in my garden, but also for my customers. Some of them have even bought their own mowers. I did not use to like cutting grass in my own garden, but I really enjoy it with Edwin. The lawn looks perfect. I have also tried most of the cartridges and everything has worked the way it was supposed to. I can only recommend this lawn mower. I also think that Mr. Šena’s approach and his knowledge are a great and pleasant bonus. As I wrote in the beginning, I really like this project and am a big supporter.
