Just read the 1 star reviews which put me off.



Everything has 1 start reviews if you look for them on Amazon. I focused on the overall average review rating, and the majority 4-5 star reviews, rather than the minority odd 1 star review.

Unfortunately deals of this nature will always be colded by some on here, as many like their gaz/oil guzzling items and that is just the culture of the UK. Not for everyone sure, but I am happy anyway

Just paid £125 for a Bosch Ergo 430 which surprisingly packed up after 3 summers (small lawn)

I can't risk forking out £120 for a mower who's battery can't be replaced which might only last a few years.

I actually rate Bosch as a better brand than Flymo. I have a Bosch cordless battery hedge trimmer which is good. But their cordless battery lawnmowers are a bit pricey.

My corded electric Flymo just died on me after 10 years. Cost £50 too. Might just be your luck sometimes with elec. garden equipment?

I have a medium sized amount of grass, and have a bad habit of letting it get too long, so will be interesting to see how I get on with the Flymo.

I wouldn't buy this one as the grass flies everywhere. So after mowing, you have sweeping, with a broom!

Not patronising Amazon either. It's soooooo greedy.

So the grass clippings collection basket that attaches does not keep the grass in? Does it have some sort of bad design fault?

I have this and can't fault it tbh.

I have one of these, bought last year and it’s brilliant. I would recommend it highly at this price.

Great mower and cheaper than a replacement battery for a Bosch. I had a Bosch previously. I actually find this one better as it is much lighter than the Bosch and therefore doesn't sink into the grass as much giving a more even cut. Certainly don't have a problem with grass not being collected. The only criticism that I have is that the collection box is quite small and not easy to see into and therefore requires more frequent emptying. I paid £133 from Argos 18 months ago so this is a good price.

I brought this about a year ago for £102 from amazon. Works pretty well but need two batteries.

I have this also tiny mower compared with the petrol one it replaced. The battery supplied gets better after a few charges and easily does my front and back garden. This is also great this time of year as a leaf collecter light and cordless

Some Bosch machines are very good. But the washing machine flogged by Currys WA??? has been a dead dud. Beware of Christmas Craze .. when several people gang up and superheat a product, especially from a chain store .. Do your research with Which? and don't go for anything just because it is called Bosch..

I found out that the grass I mowed flew everywhere with the Flymo and now I have a pushed Qualcast and guess what has happened ... The part where the grass box lip covering the main cutting area has been filled up with grass and leave a trail of grass all over the lawn.. I just can't win..

@aym280 Bosch have great reviews for their electric garden equipment. They often have a high price on their products that reflects a more premium product. Can't speak for Bosch Washing Machines, Cookers or Hoovers or whatever as know nothing about them.

You seem to be the only one who has reported grassing flying everywhere with the Flymo. Not saying it is not true, but perhaps there is a specific reason why that is happening? You have to clean any lawnmower out regularly after use, ideally after every cut. Like the blades need scraped, the inside of the surrounding compartment needs scraped, and even the basket benefits from a clean. If you want top performance, then regular cleaning helps with that, whatever brand or make of lawnmower.

Re the Qualcast, that is the cheap option, and considered the cheapo brand. The Flymo is a bit more mid level somewhere inbetween that and the Bosch's. So while I don't quite expect Bosch standard, I expect something inbetween hopefully.

I haven't used my flymo for years now. So can't tell. I emptied the basket and get rid of clogging materials and that's it.

And there are other similar complaints.

A completely different model.

Might be a different model, but the prototype is the same!

Ok here is something constructive (and tangible information) about the product. I used it for the first time yesterday. Battery does not last quite as long as would hope but it is a very cold time of year to be fair which will impact performance. My grass was also exceptionally long having not been cut for 3 months and I had at least 3-4 times my usual volume of grass to cut. No I am not lazy but I have been without a mower for that time since last one packed in!

What is good:
* Quiet, noticeably much less noise than a wired mower.
* No cable is lovely, almost takes a bit of getting used to in the way you move around out of habit.
* Light weight.
* Cutting height adjuster is instant and easy to use, superb in fact, just flick the switch.
* Battery charging is fast, approx. 1 hr if near flat.
* The handles are easily folded down to save space if needed in shed (optional but handy feature).

What is bad:
* If you have let your grass get exceptionally long as I had, it will be working hard and get through the battery quicker. The blade also gets clogged up with the grass. Even when I went to the highest setting to take it down a bit. It makes you think it is cutting out, but it is not, it just gets stuck is all and needs cleared.
* The basket seems slightly smaller than my last similar sized wire mower. It could be a little bit bigger.
* If you have let your garden get out of control, or you have a big park like garden your not going to get it done on 1 single battery charge.

In summary and overall after my first use and all things considered, I am quite happy. I have a medium sized front/back garden area, and am in no doubt I will be able to cut it all on 1 charge, when it is the usual and typical summer cuts.
required.
