Good price but every Flymo I have bought spits more grass out than it collects

flymo's are suppose to collect and compact grass.
are they any good at this?

thanks

mine doesnt even hover

I have a lower spec model and it does the job nicely. it does blow some grass about, but does also collect well. only downside is, grass collection box is small on mine and needs emptying about 6 times on our small to medium sized lawn. The trick is, to make sure you keep emptying the box or it will affect the suction. even our old petrol mower used to make a bit of a mess, so you can expect some sweeping up.

These are out of stock at the moment, I'll be trying one out when they come back in though!
As for the flymos not collecting grass it's due to going to quick, it's exactly the same as if you fly around your living room with even the powerful vacuum cleaner, slow down and they do the job fantastic

Out of stock in the store near me, hot deal though

No stock near me. Publicity exercise. Cold.

Hello
I've been bothering my local B&Q for stock updates, with no luck.
But, rechecked the website and I have just ordered one for free next day delivery - order confirmation has come back to me, so looks good.
Website still showing availablity at 13:50 on April 29th 2014.
I did ask in store when the offer was expiring and was told that there was no published end date - so the price could change at any time.
Going through reviews gives the usual full spectrum of the best and the worst product ever - unfortunately people don't publish whether they are using improperly.
Should be good for my small-medium lawn - hope never to have to do whole lawn with a strimmer again
Voted hot!

@smedge.... I gave up on b&q after checking stock everyday for a fortnight so went to argos (£149.99) grrrr. its a great mower and I know where people are going wrong...the handle is spring loaded so stands up on its own. if you push it with the handle at its high point it levers the mower forward and loses its hover. push the handle down before moving the mower and its perfect! gets right up to the edges and hoovers EVERYTHING.

Maybe not after all. They were in-stock yesterday to buy online which I did. However, the page isn't working today. Be surprised if it comes now!

My mower arrived today.
Was going to use it, but nipping out for an hour became 5 hours

Quick review summary:
Worked well on wet grass - I should have waited, but didn't want to get to tip too late on bank holiday weekend.
Design features are mostly superb; easy cut height change; grass cutting box easy to remove; handle instantly folds away - rather than screws; there is a handle at the exact point of balance to enable easy carrying; plastic is poor quality - scratches easy and stains more easily than previous mowers - took longer to clean than mow; good cord length; easy cord storage on the handle wrap points; might not be as hovery as my previous Flymos - could just manage one hand operation (other hand looking after the cable).
Very pleased with purchase

Was told ten days ago they were waiting on supplies and they would be in on 6th May and would be £103.00 but wouldn't be out for purchase until Thursday 7th. but I could pay on the Wednesday and could use my over sixty Diamond card . but was quite happy even at £103 Phoned on 2nd was told they wouldn't be in until Wednesday , Went to the store today 40 mile round trip only to be told they came in on Monday and didn't have any the price would be £149.99.Then was told no the didn't get them the supply company let them down if they get them they will cost £149.99.. Tonight looked on B & Q's site and don't see them listed at all might look for something else..

I too got fed up with b&q to be honest so ended up paying full price at argos.

B&Q invited me to add a review, so I did - but now that the product has disappeared that really was a waste of time
They could at least keep a reference to discontinued products - not a very community minded company me thinks.
There were a couple of places doing the mower for £132/£133 - both declined to price match B&Q.
