The Flymo Glider is an OK product, but with too many problems to make it 4 or 5 stars...
BAD: It won't Glide. It seems to 'dig-in' and get stuck quite often. It doesnt like going sideways or turning. Handle is too low (i'm only 5-10).BUT WORST OF ALL is the MESS. It blows clippings everywhere!!! I spend more time clearing up paths and patio afterwards then cutting the lawn. The grass collection box was great (for the grass it did collect) for the first two or three outings, but is now scored and dirty so i cannot see how full the box is. Construction of body (particularly the orange hatch that lifts when removing the grass box, why was this part even designed onto the machine)is flimsy.
GOOD: Like the fact the tools (blade spanner and spacers) are onboard so wont get lost in shed. Also like the fact it can be stored standing upright (taking up less floor space in shed). Reasonably quiet and vibration free.
