An expensive, disappointing mistake.
15 October 2017
A huge disappointment and a rather expensive mistake. This is only slightly more than a toy.
It doesn't hover at all well, so tends to dig into the ground.
The handle height hasn't been designed to suit taller people. I'm 5'10" and have to push it bent over or use my knees.
The black cable from the switch box to the motor gets trapped under the right hand lever. The cable clips for that cable keep falling off.
It doesn't appear to "compact" as claimed, and only seems to be suitable for a flat, pocket handkerchief size of garden, not a medium size garden as claimed.
I expected better than this from Flymo.
I should also add that for it to pick up with any sort of usefulness, you have to walk very very slowly with it.
