Brilliant lawnmower. came well packaged, easy to assemble, looks the part. after unpacking and assembling I thought I would give this new toy a go, first of all the cable wasn't long enough so out came the extension cable, not to bothered as I never had a lawnmower with a cable over 5 meters anyway.
My initial thought whilst cutting my back lawn, which is about 10 meter squared, is that the mower was not too loud, which is great because we don't want to annoy the neighbours, also it is reasonably light, this is a very good point due to my lawn having some sloping parts to it so I didn't want to have to struggle to push it.
The grass catcher at the back is easy enough to remove for quick emptying, also it holds a lot of grass so I only needed to empty twice and this was after nearly 2 months of growth.
After cutting my lawn and being very pleased with the results I had, (did i mention the price is very, very reasonable - £65) I thought, I hope spare parts can be found easily?!, I used to have a Husqurvana mower and the parts were very hard to come by, I think this was because it was an old mower.
Well, I more or less found a variety of websites which either specialise in, or just sell Flymo spares and accessories.
here is an example if anyone has been searching to no avail - http://www.espares.co.uk/parts/lawnmowers/flymo/rollermo/p/1116/283/0/929978
so to some everything up here's my main pros of this mower
*Very reasonably priced
*Does it job excellently
*Easy to use
the list can go on, but, well you will just have to take my word for it that this a great buy.
I haven't mentioned any cons in regards to this mower because I haven't as yet come across any, touch wood lol.
