Flymo Mini Trim
Advantages: Its small
Disadvantages: not enough power
My last strimmer was a petrol one so I was always going to be disappointed I was not wrong, there is nothing wrong with this trimmer apart from the price, I would say it should be selling for about £10 less than it is. Get a 300w one more power and about the same price.
The product arrives in 3 peace's that needs to be clicked together, firstly the upper shaft needs pushed into the lower shaft, you cant go wrong here as it is straight forward, a good bit of strength is required here, secondly the guard need attaching again this is easy but needs a good firm twist to get it right on, so that's it ready to go just plug in and away you go.
It comes with a 6 meter fitted cable, so it is a good length for a small garden, also comes with a spool of cutting line, this is a manual feed system so stopping every 5 minutes or less to let out more line is required, there are to levers at the bottom of the spool these are pushed together easily and simply pull out required length of line.
The on/off button is in the ergonomic handle, press for on and release for off, this will build up a good strong wrist if you use it often, the 230w electric engine is very lacking in power, it really struggles to cut weeds even small ones, it has a cutting area of 21cm, but that means nothing if you have to go over the same place a few times to get results, I don't know why there's a safety guard unless they think people would be using this whilst sporting open toe sandals. Goggles are recommended whilst using, this must be health and safety for hay fever sufferers.
Summary: good if you dont have a big garden dont expect to much
