This hover mower is lightweight and easy to use. Does what it says on the box! I was unsure as to which mower to purchase but am happy with this product. It represents very good value for money.

I should have spent more money! Grass box doesn't even close! If I could find the receipt I'd take it back!

I bought this mower to replace my brilliant but knackered Flymo 350 as the reviews for its replacement are awful. This machine will just about do the job but for how long is anyone’s guess.
THE BAD :- it is a little flimsy and the grass collection system isn’t as good, the holes in the basket are too big so the fan underneath get clogged with cuttings and needs clearing regularly, the trigger is stiff and needs a lot of effort to keep it on you can get aching forearms from it and the vision window is tiny and useless.
THE GOOD :- it is light and easy to use, it will cut nice and close if you buy and fit another spacer and that’s about all.
Order and pickup was fine no problems or delays.

Our lawn is sloped, has lots of nooks and crannies and is very uneven as we are refurbishing the house, so I have already burnt up 2 lawn mowers in the last 2 years! I tried this one for the first time yesterday on grass that hasn't been cut for 3 weeks and was still slightly wet and it managed beautifully. The hovering (rather than wheels as on the other m/cs) meant it managed the lumps and bumps better and was lighter to move about the lawn. So far, a good quality product at a reasonable price and I am satisfied. The trick will be how easy it is to replace the blade.

Tried for hours to put the handle on,very poor design,when eventually got one side right the other fell out.
My flymo was easy took it out the box and it was ready to go.,no having to put the handle together.
Took it back!!

We apologise for the difficulties you experienced with the Qualcast Hover Lawnmower. We work hard to offer the best quality and features for our customers and were dissapointed to learn about your experience on this occasion. We do use lower metal handles for improved strength and reliability when compared to alternatives which unfortunately does require some assembly on this model. Your issue however has been noted and we will investigate the best solution to improve and maintain quick fold features and reliable quality. Thank you for your feedback.

My Best Hover Lawnmower yet !
Posted 02 May 2016
I admit my son helped me to assemble the handle but only because he was nearby. He used a rubber mallet to tap the inserts deep into the housing. Clever idea.
I've cut my lawn today with this mower and WOW it's brilliant. A beautiful close cut. The basket holds much more grass than my previous Flymo and it is so lightweight I can lift it easily to store in the garage.
Definitely 5 STARS from me and would highly recommend.

I can't believe you only gave it 1 star. I have this mower and it's brilliant! Far better than any of the Flymows that I've had. It picks up the clippings far better than my Flymow and does not chuck any back out again, unlike Flymow. So I'd give it 5 stars.

Good value for money. Easy to asemble. The steel blade makes this mower far superior to other hover mowers using plastic blades which break easily. Also the more powerful motor compared with other similar products gives a better cut..

What a shame somebody couldn't put the handle on, I did it in 4 mins.
I usually but Flymos but wont any more after buying this Lawn mower.
It cut nice and evenly and picked up just about all of the cuttings.
The only down side (as with Flymo) is the blade is held on by a plastic nut, why they cant use metal is beyond me, it will no doubt shear off when I need to change the blade.
Other than that, much better and cheaper than the Flymo 330 compact.

If you were having a problem assembling the handle why did you try for hours, if you had ask in the store I'm sure that the staff would have helped you.
It's not very nice to blame others when you can't do something yourself.
I have seen all the reviews for this Qualcast Hover Mower and I have just reserved one for collection later today from my local Homebase.

Posted 19 May 2014
I bought this item last weekend in my local store, I'd previous used flymo and while i like Flymo i find this wee mower does a fantastic job, the selection of cut - whether you want your lawn cut very short or just a wee trim. I found it easy to assemble, and i'm a first timer at building up a lawnmower! I would recommend it to anyone considering purchasing one.
