Product Description

The popular Turbo Compact 330 from Flymo is light and easy to use, and will have your garden looking great in no time at all.

Fitted with a 33cm metal blade and a powerful 1500 watt motor, your light weight Turbo Compact 330 will make easy work of even the toughest of conditions.

The grass is collected in a 30 litre grass box, and is compacted to collect more grass, and means fewer journeys to the compost heap to empty your cuttings.

Your Turbo Compact 330 comes equipped with 4 heights of cut (between 12 - 32mm), meaning that your desired grass height can easily be achieved.

The 12 metre mains cable on your Turbo Compact 330 gives you the freedom and flexibility to move around your lawn, without having to worry about running out of cable.

You don't need to worry about maintenance or servicing when you buy a Flymo product, because they are designed to the highest standards of quality and reliability, and only require the minimum of attention to keep them working perfectly over their long life.

I would not normally take the time to write a review such as this - HOWEVER - this mower was so fundamentally flawed that I have offloaded it on EBAY and bought one with wheels (not a flymo).

We only have a small lawn on a V slight gradient, and this mower did more harm then good. Even going over areas several times, much of the grass was simply "bent over" rather then actually cut. I used it twice and the results were simply terrible.

My two main issues are a) it doesnt mow properly b) it doesnt collect the grass leaving large clumps behind. Pretty fundamental aspects of a "mow and vac" style mower. Even going over the lawn several times leaves behind large clumps of grass, with some grass just crushed rather then cut.

Bluntly - It simply does not work very well.

Additionally, as soon as it has much grass (1/2 full) it stops hovering. It should be called a "drag" mower rather then "hover".

Save your money. I flogged mine on EBAY and bought a Bosch Rotak for under £100 which is 10000% better. It is light, easy to use and leaves the lawn looking perfect.

Bottom line - avoid flymo's like the plague.....

If I'd have written this at the weekend, this would have been a long rant, but I've calmed down now.
We got this flymo from my in-laws and as soon as I have the spare cash it's going in the bin and we're getting a mower with wheels and not a flymo! The 3 main design flaws are as follows:
1. It has rollers at the front which flatten the grass before it cuts it. If they'd put the rollers at the back it would cut all the grass first time and leave a stripe, but it actually works better if you drag it behind you and go backwards (but that way, it doesn't suck up the grass cuttings),
2. following on from that, it doesn't actually suck up much of the cuttings because the air that it blows out to make it hover, also blows lots of grass cuttings everywhere so we end up with lots of grass bits all over the flower beds, patio, pond and anywhere else you don't want them,
3. It has a window so you can see when the grass collector box is full, but that only works the first time you use it, after that bits of grass get stuck to the inside of it and you can't see through it ever again... unless you clean it very thoroughly every time you use it.
We have had this flymo for some time now and these issues have been bugging me for a while, it's not just teething problems. I'll never have a flymo again!

Allthough the mower worked well and collected the grass ok, I only was able to use it once. after the second time the impeller was ruined and sheer pins snapped causing the unit in-oprable so much so it had to be renewed under warrenty. the same happened to the second and third mowers.. Allways the same fault with the impeller. Since the initial warrenty has run out and it wasnt continued on to the new replacements I now have to pay for the parts myself or get a new mower. It will not be one of these again.

I read a few negative reviews here after I'd bought this, and so was a bit worried. However, I've found this mower to be fairly adequate for my small lawn.

Pluses:

- Lighter than wheeled rotary mowers I've used.
- Fairly good over uneven ground. The rollers at the front do help if it gets stuck in a dip.
- Still works even on a 45 degree slope.
- Streamlined shape is good for nosing underneath shrubs.
- Cuts cleanly.

Minuses:

- The grass collector is mediocre. Probably only 40% the collection rate of a conventional wheeled rotary mower. Best emptied often and used only on completely dry grass.

I bought this product last year at the start of the mowing season, thinking we were getting a good deal, and buying a respected, quality brand.

Just last week however, halfway through this season, the product broke down - on closer inspection the motor housing and surrounding cabling had melted away! Of course, with only a one year warranty there was nothing to do but either consider getting it repaired (costly) or throwing it away.

I would not have another Flymo again - they may look like modern, quality products - but it's what's inside that counts, and clearly Flymo are not using high quality components. I would expect this of a much, much cheaper mower - but not this.

My advice is to try a different brand - I'll be looking at something like a Bosch where there is a two year warranty!

This is not an easy mower to use - very heavy to move around, even when it is "hovering". didn;t pick up the cuttings particularly well, and the blade left circular marks on the lawn. I had this mower for 2 years before an accidental running-over of the cord gave me an excuse to buy a new one. I now have a Qualcast with wheels, which is much lighter and easier to use... the flymo is actually a slowmow...

I found this mower to be quite heavy and it seems to leave quite a lot of grass behind (as the grass collector is at the back you can only collect grass whilst going forward). It would be ideal for a flat lawn, although when it comes across a bump it requires quite a bit of effort to push it over. Compared to my old mower, which had wheels, it is much more difficult to use. It is very heavy even before it has collected any grass and the grass capacity is disappointingly small. One trick I have found is it lift the rear of the mower up slightly to allow the rollers to work at their best. Maybe I am doing it wrong but even compared to a petrol mower this is heavy.
