Advantages: Lightweight, easy to store, cuts really well
Disadvantages: Handles can be a bit fiffly in setting up.
As our garden is slightly sloped, I wanted a lawn mower that was self-propelled to give me added help whilst pushing it, but I didn't want anything too heavy to lug about as I have on going back problems. After reading many reviews on different types we thought that this one would be good to go with.
The FLymo's power consumption is a whooping 1150 watts that runs on a 240v supply, cutting width is 33cm, 4 step cutting system that can cut between 10 - 30mm with it's metal blade. Good sized cable which is 10 meters in length. Overall weigh is 6.5 kg.
All boxed up nicely with easy to understand instructions. The Flymo comes with a one year guarantee. Very easy to put together just involves the main handle, which needs assembling. One thing that I did notice first off was that it didn't come with a grass box, so if your grass is long, then expect plenty of raking up after you've cut it, or if you have the time then just go back over the lawn and it'll suck it all up.
The handles can be a bit fiddly when setting up and extending, as you have to ensure that the plastic pin is inserted correctly
Love the metal blade as it cuts through the grass really well - just like a knife cutting through butter. It really is effortless to use and I'd say that it takes me half the time now to mow the lawn than I used to take with my old petrol mower. As with most mowers it's best to mow the grass when it's completely dry other wise if the grass is wet then it will drag and an untidy mess is created and the lawn mowed will get clogged up.
So far I've only had to replace the blade once, which was easy to do and cost me just under £15 through the Amazon website. To remove the blade you need to use the ring spanner that is supplied with the mower (this can also be used to add the spacers if you need to make a closer cut).
I would recommend this product to anyone who wants a good value, lightweight lawn mower that has great ability to cut the lawn in a neat and tidy fashion with minimal effort required by the user.
Purchased from B & Q for £96.99 4 years ago.
Summary: Super lightweight lawn mower, ideal for those with back problems, super price too.
