Part 3 – Flymo Easi Glide 330VX Review of Features, Pros and Cons

Flymo Easi Glide 330VX Electric Hover Collect Lawnmower 1400W

You get a Vision window provided to see the level of grass fill inside the box while working  and it comes with a unique transparent grass collection box of 20L capacity.

When the grass fills up, it has the grass compaction ability plus it includes a power cable which is 12m long. The weight of the unit comes in at 8.8kg for carrying and there are front roller wheels included to provide portability when not in use.

Price Guide: £80 - £130 @ Argos

Further Images about the Main Features are Outlined Below

  • Grass Collection Box

Main Pros Available

  • Price level is generally quite good and can be available for less than £100 at certain times of the year
  • Additional 100W of power when compared to the standard Easi Glide 300
  • Ideal for uneven lawns, slopes or steep hills
  • Requires less frequent emptying as the grass is compacted which mean less interrupted work
  • Perfect for people with limited storage space as it can be folded away neatly and tidy after use
  • Grass collection container is very easy to work with, to empty and to put back into place – plus it is transparent to see through
  • The front rollers wheels will help you to move it around your garden when not turned on
  • As it is made in the UK, you are supporting your local community which is always a plus
  • The vision window is great also as you know exactly when the time comes for emptying
  • No battery charging, fuel costs or ongoing maintenance costs to worry about (or additional batteries either)
  • No assembly is needed as it is more or less ready to use straight from the box
  • Also, it is very lightweight coming in at less than 9kg and as it works on a cushion of air, it is very easy to work with and move in different directions
  • Gives a lower cleaner cut at the lower 1cm level and has been praised a lot by people who have back problems as it is very lightweight and easy to manage and work with

Main Cons

  • Can get heavier than expected to operate when the grass box starts to fill out
  • Collection of grass could be a whole lot better – work is needed afterwards to tidy up especially on patios, driveways or flower beds close by
  • Narrower mow path than the UltraGlide by 3cm which means slightly more mowing time needed
  • Adjusting the heights can be tricky as there is no single height adjustor – instead you have spacers and a spanner (included) which takes more time
  • Getting a perfect even cut can be difficult especially when the grass collector becomes filled up as it gets heavier
  • No rear rollers for stripes are available – plus there is no mulching capability as other makes / models offer
  • The grass collection box is smaller than the UltraGlide by 10L
  • You are limited to a work area of 12m – otherwise you have to go to the expense of an additional extension cord
  • Struggles with long grass and wet grass needs to be avoided at all times to prevent clogging – suitable for lighter type mowing work rather than heavy duty cutting
  • There is extra work needed around edges after you are finished as it tends to leave more grass than expected uncut.
  • Overall, as far as Hover lawn mowers go, this model performs as good as any of them but be prepared for additional work of tidying up afterwards due to the level of grass that remains uncollected

Selection of Positive Customer Comments:

  1. Very easy to use and moves nicely across the grass and the 12m extension cord was long enough to cover the entire garden
  2. Lightweight for a person’s needs and does a good job collecting the cuttings across the yard
  3. Great for areas such as slopes and uneven ground as it is very easy to push and compacts well in the shed
  4. Excellent value for money – lower priced that what was expected and did the job as needed
  5. Quick and easy to set up – ready to go straight from the box, cuts well and noise level is quite low
  6. Customer service is great at getting back to you and its light weight  which makes it easy to handle
  7. Did a decent enough cut, it was easy to assembly and empty and easy to use due to the lighter weight

Selection of Negative Customer Comments:

  1. Operated more like a toy than a real lawn mower and lacks sufficient power that was needed
  2. Cable clips for holding the cord is very flimsy and should be a lot more sturdier
  3. Power fluctuated a bit which meant the hover control is unpredictable leaving an unlevel cut
  4. Grass collection was disappointing and requires additional time to clean up after the job is done – blows out more grass than it collects
  5. Adjusting the heights is not that easy with the spacers and too much grass left uncut around edges
  6. Only for small gardens – not suitable for medium sized gardens
  7. Not for people who like nice clean borders or who don’t want the hassle of additional strimming

  1. Hi Paul, thanks for this great and highly informative review for the Flymo Easi glide hover mower as I have heard mixed reports about it – doing some further research across the internet checking as many reviews as I possibly can before I buy anything. You have put a whole lot of energy into writing this and I really appreciate the good job with your review especially for pointing out all the things that need to be watched out for.

  2. I have had a Flymo 330 Hover Compact for over 15 years and it is still working, albeit getting a little noisy now due to things becoming worn (bushes ‘ spindle ‘ drive motor) etc. It does the job and is very convenient to use and store and easy to maintain etc. Not the best at cutting and collecting what has been cut. But it works well enough for this price point and has proved to be very reliable. 8* out of 10.
    I have recently purchased this new Flymo 330 VX online for £73 with free delivery. It is almost exactly the same as my older 330 Hover Compact and performs just as well. Easy to use / keep / maintain..Does a very good job of cutting and collecting if used correctly. It is certainly a lot quieter to use than the much older 330HC. I would also give it 8* out of 10, in many ways it is an improvement over the older 330HC (longer cable lead by 2m ; quieter ‘ better cut and better pick up) I will give an improved rating in several years time if it is anything like as reliable as the older model. For £73 it is a snip and you won’t be disappointed. Small to medium garden lawns it is a ‘best buy’ in my book.
