Flymo Glidemaster 380 38cm 240 volt Mains Electric Hover Collect Mower
I have used hover mowers for many years and prefer them to other types as more manoeuvrable, good for hoovering cuttings etc. I liked the look of this Flymo 380 as wide cutting blade (38 cm), large collection bag (35L), and good power. However, I was concerned by quite a few bad reviews on this site claiming the mower was very poor. Despite this I bought one as best specs for a hover mower that I could find. And... to my great relief I found the mower was absolutely fine. My lawn is fairly falt and it cut very well, and hoovered up and compacted the grass very well. Sure, there was a small amount of cuttings blown around but all hovers do this? And not too bad at all, could simply hoover up on next straight run. My only criticism is that the 'hover' of the mower is limited, and as the grass bag filled up the mower took more pushing. Also there were some small vents that needed periodic clearing. But this is in line with many other hovers I have used. So overall, a good hover mower and don't be put off by bad reviews.
