Flymo Compact 350
Disadvantages: colour maybe
The Flymo Compact 350 hover mower has had a place in my garden shed for about two years now, and so I have decided to share my thoughts on it.
My previous mower had decided that it no longer wanted to toil in the long grass anymore, and so packed in completely mid mowing one sunny day. The previous mower had basically been purchased due to the fact that it was the cheapest I could find at the time, as I had just moved into my first house, and things were a little tight.
However cheapest isn't always good enough, and the mower was never much use, it had a tiny grass collection box, which constantly needed emptying, and a very short electrical lead.
With the above in mind, I was looking to pay a little more for my next mower, and so eventually decided on the Flymo Compact 350 priced at around £80 at my local Argos.
The main reasons for choosing this make and model was that it was a mid ranged price, and it came with a 22 litre grass collection box, and even more importantly a 12 meter electrical lead, which would eliminate my need to use our extension cable.
The full spec / details of the Compact 350 is as follows:
*1500 watts motor.
*35cm metal cutting blade.
*4 cutting heights from 10-30mm.
*Lightweight grass collecting electric hover mower with central grass box and hinged lid for easy emptying.
*Grass box capacity 22 litres.
*Suitable for use on medium to large garden sizes.
*Comes fully assembled with fold down handle for storage.
*** My opinion on the Mower ***
Overall I have been very happy with this bright orange lawn mower!
I find that it is very lightweight compared to others that I have used in the past, and the hover mower makes cutting grass - even very long grass (like mine often is) a pretty effortless job, as it just glides along over the surface trimming away.
As mention above the collection box is a decent size, and is very easy to remove when it is ready for emptying. On top of this the box itself is easy to empty, and due to the hinged lid, and so there is no need to ferociously shake and bang the box to get the cut grass out, it just falls out of the large exit door with ease.
The 12 meter electrical lead is easily big enough for my little gardens, but if you have a large garden, you may want to check on this.
This mower is currently available on special offer at Argos for just £59.99
