I wanted a small mower that would mulch the grass and be easy to store by hanging up on the wall in the garage.With a name like Flymo which I have found ok in the past,I decided to buy the microlight.Putting it together was easy,I then realised the cable could not be detached,if there was a problen in use you would want to disconnect the supply quickly,so not a safe point to start with.
However when I tried to cut grass I was very dissapointed,the machine uses plastic "blades"that would only cut at the edges,so you are attempting to cut hollow circles in the grass,however it just hardly cuts,and moving the mower is not easy,it does not hover properly and tends to nose dive into the lawn,honestly ,this is machine is just a joke,and the only thing worth saving is the lead,the remainder is in the scrap bin.!

Sorry for the low rating. It's a good start but if you wanted higher ratings then you need to say more. My advice would be to read around other reviews and you'll see what I mean. If you edit this in any way let me know via my guestbook and I'll happily re-read it for you.
