Bosch is adding a decisive product feature to its Rotak lawnmower models: the “Ergoflex System”. As a result of this, the Rotak mowers are now even easier to handle and also relieve the strain on the user’s arms and back. The multi-position handle and an adjustable work height make it possible to mow in various comfortable postures. Gardening enthusiasts can therefore work in an upright and relaxed position, and their muscles, tendons and joints are relieved of strain and supported. Mowing requires much less effort. The multi-position handle excels due to its ergonomically shaped grip zones with softgrip surfaces. It sits perfectly in your hand and offers a high level of flexibility: whether one-handed or two-handed, with the left hand or the right, horizontally or vertically – the mower can be steered and operated from a total of eight grip positions. The work height is also selectable, therefore enabling every user to mow in the posture most comfortable for his or her body height. The angle at which the handles rise up from the mower’s housing has been selected so that the user’s arms and hands are only slightly bent during mowing. This is a natural posture, it relieves the strain on joints and muscles, and it ensures optimal power transfer. This makes mowing easier, particularly when turning in confined spaces, when changing direction or when mowing on slopes. Cutting grass in tight curves, for example around a tree, can even be done one-handed with the new Rotak mowers. The Rotak models with “Ergoflex System” are the world’s first lawnmowers to be certified with the seal of approval from Aktion Gesunder Rücken (AGR) e.V., a German organisation which promotes back health. Their back-friendly construction has been examined and confirmed by an independent panel of medical and scientific experts.
