The Einhell BG-PM 46 S Review

The Einhell BG-PM 46 S wings its way across from Germany and we ask whether the German traits of quality and efficiency are in evidence in this petrol lawn mower.

There is maybe not too much known about Einhell on these shores but they are a well established power tool company in their own country who produce a wide variety of tools including, our interest, a line of petrol lawn mowers such as the Einhell BG-PM 46 S.

Please note : There is a newer version of the Einhell BG-PM 46 S now available and until we manage our own review, you can check out the Einhell UK 3404585 46cm Petrol Self Propelled Mower for yourself.

The first thing to note about this mower is that it’s easy to assemble and appears on first glance to be well made and robust. My first impression here is that there is a lot more mower here than what the price would suggest as a quick look at the features from the blurb tells me I should be using a mower that costs a lot more than it does. Time will tell, I suppose.

The Einhell BG-PM 46 S is aimed at the medium to large size garden and on initial inspection I can’t really argue against that. It will quite happily deal with slopes and undulations and will chug away with ease, efficiency and speed on the toughest of lawns.

Part of the reason for that is that this lawnmower is a self-propelled model – the engine supplying power to the rear wheels which drives them forward with the only user input being to point it in the right direction. I can’t stress enough how a self-propelled mower makes mowing the lawn a much easier and, dare I say it, an enjoyable experience.

So is the Einhell BG-PM 46 S any good cutting grass?

Simply put. Yes. There is a nice hefty 46cm cutting blade underneath that means if you cut in straight lines it will cut a lawn down to size with less up and down passes than a mower with a lesser size blade. The cutting heights could have been a bit better but with an almost necessary to all mowers, 5 height settings, the height options are absolutely fine. Also, what I always love, the cutting height can be changed with one simple lever instead of messing about with the 4 different settings at each wheel.
On the back of the mower is a whacking great 60 litre fabric collection bag which lends itself well to the larger lawns that Einhell promote the lawn mower towards. There is a bit of a suggestion that the grass bag lets a bit of dust out from it which can be a little annoying if you’re wearing new shoes, but it’s a small gripe on what is a great mower.

The engine is an Overhead Valve, 4 stroke engine that produces about 3.5 horsepower and comes with a big 1.3 litre fuel tank which means it can carry more than enough fuel to get most jobs done. In addition it comes there is an excellent choke with the engine, I say a “proper” choke rather than what you find on other mowers. What this boils down to is a nice quick starting mower that is easy for inexperienced gardeners to start things up. It can be a little noisy for some but not something that needs to be shouted over.

So what do we think of the Einhell BG-PM 46 S?

As I mentioned at the top of this review, there is a lot more mower here than what the price would suggest and barring one or two gripes such as the dust, it’s an excellent mower for the price.

Maybe it will be a bit too big if you only had a small lawn – and by big I mean sledgehammer and nuts big. But for a medium sized lawn and even many bigger ones, then the German entry is a very good petrol mower indeed. Yes, the Einhell BG-PM 46 S gets a thumbs up.
