Flymo Hover Compact 300
Advantages: Good vslue for money and great results.
Disadvantages: Only a 12m cable, but nothing to complain about!
After recently moving to a new home, we found the state of our grass was not good. It had been left by the previous owners to grow wild, long and looking very sorry for itself. We tried using our trusty old push-along cylinder mower, however due to the un-even ground it felt heavy, took a lot of work and a very long and frustrating time to cut. Eventually, after it had taken many chunks out of our garden, we had to give in. The swear jar overflowing, we decided it was time to upgrade to an electric hover mower.
Whilst searching for an appropriate standard and priced mower, we saw an advert in our local observer stating that B&Q had an offer on the Flymo 300 mower. At an original price of £79.99, the Flymo seemed great value for a sale price of £65. How could we go wrong?
After taking a trip to the nearest B&Q, we learnt that not only was it a good price, but it was also high-spec, with four options to change the cutting level (10-30mm and 30cm with a metal blade) and a powerful 1400 watt motor that spins at 4,300 rpm, making easy work of cutting your lawn quickly and efficiently.
But, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say, so we soon set about cutting our grass. Out of the medium-sized box (that fit well in our Seat Leon, but probably not in a two-door car), it was light and seemed like it couldn't handle any blade longer than your index finger. Nevertheless , it tackled our lawn easily and quickly. The 12m chord may have been a little too short, but I could hardly say the Flymo 300 had any major flaws. It was outstanding.
Our 30ft by 24ft grass was cut in around 10 minutes.
And then it was cut again, a week later. And then again. And again.
Mowing was a chore no longer. The Flymo raced across the grass like a breeze and left stunning results.
Even setting up the Flymo was easy. It is quite literally, out of the box and go. The handles fold down simply when you're finished for easy storage, and pull back out to click into position the next time it's needed. This means that anyone can use it, even the elderly. Perfect.
All in all our Flymo 300 mower is great value for money; I'd even, now after using it, have been happy to have paid it's original £79.99 price tag. It's a breeze to use, and apart from needing maybe a slightly longer cable, and making an ever so slight noise, it has no flaws. It's not enough to disturb your neighbours, and enough to make them green with envy.
Summary: Excellent quality and excellent price. Definitely reccommend!
