    does anyone know if these are any good? I noticed you can geta cheap fylmo for £50 elsewhere.. have used a cheap trimmer before and wire kept breaking and was a pain to change...

    Get a hover mower, much better. These things are a nightmare to turn around at the end of a garden, it's like doing a three point turn in a Jumbo jet on the edge of a cliff.

    I must have told you a million times - don't exaggerate.

    Never buy a cheap strimmer unless you want to spend more time sorting the line feed out than actually strimming!

    They're not bad, ok if you've got a smallish garden. As stated earlier the strimmer is a pain to keep rethreading.

    The problem with electric mowers is that they have powerful motors, with very little torque. It means that they are fine when the grass is short and dry. However, if it is long or damp, the motor slows down and doesn't have the torque to cut through the grass. It ends up bashing it down. You can get electric mowers which have an induction motor, and they are supposed to be a lot better. However, they cost more, and for that sort of money, you can get a petrol mower. Mowers with a petrol engine have enough torque and power to *cut* grass even when it is long and damp.

    I've got a Honda Izy which has been fine. It has the advantage that you can give a Murray Walker running commentary with "the Power of the Honda Engine".

    Your probably better off waiting for B&Q sales. Got Flymo equivalent version of this for £30. Does a good job as long as you dont let the grass get too long. Not a fan of hover ones myself.
