Flymo Easi Glide 300 Hover Lawnmower Review

Flymo Easi Glide 300 Electric Hover Collect Lawn Mower 1300W

Main Features Available:

  • Operates on a cushion of air with a metal blade
  • Provides a mow cutting path of 30cm and a power level of 1300W
  • Suitable for small and medium sized gardens only
  • Light weight coming in at 8.5kg
  • Includes a grass box with a collection capacity of 20L
  • Corded version for power with a 10m cable included as standard
  • Front roller wheels to help with transport when not in use
  • Provides 4 different mow height settings that range from 1.2cm to 3.2cm
  • Includes the double handed switchbox for left or right-hand use
  • Spacers and a spanner is included for height adjustments
  • The price when last seen on sale with Amazon was in the £80 to £100 region which of course can be double checked below if you are interested in taking a closer look

Further images are outlined below for the main features:

  • Easy to Empty

 

Main Pros Outlined:

  • Made in the UK so you are supporting your own community when you buy
  • One of the lightest in the range which make the job of mowing a lot easier to do and carry around
  • No assembly is required on your end which is great as it is more or less ready to start working straight from the box, just unfold the handle and plug in
  • No maintenance costs, fuel or oil costs to worry about or charging of batteries either
  • Environmentally friendly alternative to petrol lawn mower with no toxic fumes
  • Suitable for areas around steep slopes, uneven ground, banks or areas hard to reach by rotary lawn mowers
  • Front roller wheels are included to help with the portability aspect when not in use
  • Significantly lower level of noise when compared to petrol mowers
  • Includes the double handed switchbox which can be adapted to left or right handed
  • Compacts the collected grass internally so the smaller box of 20L goes a lot further than one would expect
  • In terms of size, it is very small and can be folded away when not is in use which is ideal for people with limited storage space in their sheds.
  • Overall, although not the best among the Flymo Hover range, it does provide adequate features without all the expensive addons and generally has one of the lowest prices available which makes it very hard to beat

Main Cons Outlined:

  • Only really works with very small gardens (like half the size of a tennis court)
  • Lowest power available of 1300W, if power is what you are after, then start looking elsewhere
  • Shorter cable of 10m – others have 12m and some 15m so please check your garden dimensions first
  • After the Hovervac 280, it has the narrowest mow path which ultimately means more time is needed to complete the average job
  • Many have issues with grass cuttings not being collected sufficiently so additional work is generally needed for the clean-up afterwards on driveways or patios (raking / sweeping)
  • Getting a perfect even cut can be difficult to achieve at times so if you want a beautiful perfect manicured lawn- look elsewhere
  • You are limited to a work area of the length of the cable or extension cord which typically means very small garden sizes.
  • Unable to deal with very long grass, heavy thick grass so is only able to perform lighter duty type work but at least you are covered with a 12 month guarantee if you are not satisfied.
  • You may need to get an extension cord depending on your lawn size which is an additional expense
  • Lower level of warranty than McGregor (2 yrs)
  • The biggest issue again really is the amount of work needed afterwards with the clean up job so the grass collection system should be a lot better – on a positive note, you do get a lot more exercise and burn more calories!

  1. I haven’t seen anything quite like this before. It’s a very unusual type lawn mower as I am only used to using the electric push mowers with the wheels. Do they offer a model that is rechargeable instead of having a cord or can that cover a much bigger area? Cost seems reasonable but the grass collection needs to be 10 out of 10 in my opinion before I would consider it, Sara

    • Hi Sara, it is only available in a corded version I’m afraid but thanks for your question. Best of luck with whatever model you eventually decide on as the grass collection results here can be quite mixed. Regards, Paul

  2. Hi Paul, thank you for the review. I have heard lots of good reports about this lawn mower but also some bad ones also from other people so I came to this review to find out more which certainly gave me a lot more information before I decide which one I will buy. My last lawnmower was way too heavy and was so difficult for me to use and my main requirement now is a lightweight machine for a small side garden that is easy to use, collecting all the clippings is not all that important as long as the cut is maintained and I reckon this can fit the bill. Thanks for the faq’s also, Sandy

    • You are more than welcome and many thanks for taking the time to stop by and leave your feedback – it is greatly appreciated!
