Is the Flymo Hover Vac 250 mower lightweight?
The tool feels robust and strong and the ratchet mechanism and anvil blade make cutting efficient and easy – the ratchet can be used in up to 3 stages which is great if hand strength is an issue. The ratchet mechanism did rattle noisily but still cut well.
What is the Flymo Hover Vac 250 mower like to use?
This is very simple to set up with easy to spot bright orange handles and it operates with a gentle flex of the hand. It can cope with all terrains but has a limited cut height range so it’s best on already trim lawns. The handle flexes up or down so its great for users of any height.
Adjusting the height of cut is fiddly though – having to unscrew the blade and spacers every time is slow.
How easy is the Flymo Hover Vac 250 mower to store?
The hover vac can be hung up, as it flattens easily against a wall or the side of a shed or folded by adjusting the handle and compacting it down.
Is the Flymo Hover Vac 250 mower good value for money?
With its new metal blade, grass collector and efficient and easy cutting this is great value at well under £100.
Who is the Flymo Hover Vac 250 mower most useful for?
Gardeners of any height as the handle can be adjusted, but best for those who strength is an issue and for anyone with a smaller lawn they mow regularly.
