Flymo Easi Glide 300 Review

Summary

Flymo’s Easi Glide 300 is an electric hover mower that has a 30cm deck size designed for a small to medium-sized lawn, an area less than half a tennis court. It is a lightweight hover mower at just 8.5kg and is simple to use, and there are very few parts, so there is minimum maintenance. The Flymo Easi Glide 300 has the added benefit of not only being a hover mower but a hover mower that collects the grass cuttings in its 20 litre collection box.

Main Features 

  • Rating: 9.6/10
  • Lawn Size: small to medium
  • Power: 1300 Watt
  • Cable Length: 12 metre corded, mains power
  • Blade Length: 30cm Metal
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 4 (from 12mm to 32mm)
  • Grass Box Capacity: 20 L
  • Weight: 8.5 Kg

 

Power System

The Flymo Easi Glide 300 uses a 1300-watt motor; this means that there are no issues with flat batteries hampering the performance of the machine. Furthermore, there is no need to refuel the machine, making it a greener and quieter alternative to a petrol mower.

Power Cable

The electric motor is powered directly from the mains supply with a 12 metre power-cord. This cord is wired up, with moulded plug, and ready to use with the mower. Flymo offers a number of longer cables that you can buy separately.

Blades

Metal blades prolong the lifespan of the cutting edge that is up against a lot of wear and tear from small stones and dirt. Over periods of time, even small objects wear down the width of a blade that will eventually make the machine unbalanced and if not corrected or replaced may lead to damaging the motor.

A blunt blade will also result in a sloppy cut and take longer to cut the grass. Flymo uses simple flat blades, with chamfered edges, and replacements are inexpensive and easy to find and replace.

Height Adjustment

Adjustable 4 cutting heights are offered on this Flymo Easi Glide 300 and range between 12mm and 32mm, in 5mm increments. Once you have the correct height, it is unlikely that you will want to change it again. Easi Glide 300 uses a combination of 3 spacers to change the cutting height.

This means that the operator needs to remove the blade and add or remove spacers each time they want to change the height. Then re-install the blade and re-tighten the bolt that holds the blade to the machine. This is a quick and easy process and can be seen in the video below.

Cutting Diameter

The Flymo Easi Glide 300 blade’s diameter is 30cm, which works out to an area of 0.09 square metres per rotation. And being an electric motor running off mains power, it performs a steady 4,300 revolutions per minute.

Roller (Stripes)

 This version has no roller or striper, though it is aimed at small lawns that do not need such a device. But because it has no wheels, the bulk of the air pressure pressing down on the grass generates a similar effect to a striper but nowhere near as defined as a roller.

Grass Box Capacity

At 20 litres the grass box is a little on the small side, but then the Easi Glide 300 is intended for keeping grass short and not for hacking through thick weeds. For a small garden, this has more than enough ability to collect all grass on your weekly lawn duty.

When full, the back-compartment lifts open, and the box holding the grass is easy to lift out for both right and left-handed operators. There is no vision window on this model.

Although this grass box may be on the smaller side for a standard lawn mower, the 20 litres is a decent size for a small to medium lawn. Also remember this Flymo Easi Glide 300 is a hover mower and the grass collection box is not bolted on the outside of the mower, Flymo have cleverly integrated this collection box within the main body of the mower.

Flymo Easi Glide 300 Practicalities

The design of the Flymo range is to have a simple economy lawn mower that is very light. And at 8.5 Kg it is hard to find a mower any lighter. This has meant that they have done away with the wheels, and there is far less manual effort involved in pushing the machine over the grass.

You need a tool to adjust the height of this Flymo Easi Glide 300, and the power cable will keep getting in the way. There is no great problem with any of this, but it will not be much fun to use in a larger garden. The Easi Glide 300 has a foldable handle for compact storage.

Another great feature of the Easi Glide range of mowers is the inclusion of a roller at the front of the mower. This is not to produce a stripy lawn but to assist in wheeling the mower around when no in use. This is a nice touch from Flymo as it saves you having to carry the mower to the shed or garage.

Safety Features

To start the machine, a lock button must first be engaged by the operator. The machine is also very quiet at low sound production of 78.8 dB(A).

Mulching

This model comes with a straight cutting blade, and there is no mulching option.

Flymo Easi Glide Mowers – What are the Differences?

 There are three different versions of the Flymo Easi Glide to choose from. The Flymo Easi Glide 300, the Flymo Easi Glide 330 and the Flymo Easi Glide 330VX. What’s the difference? Well, not a great deal apart from the deck size, power, some features and a slight difference in weight.

The Easi Glide 300 has a 30cm deck/blade size and a 1300W motor and the 330 has a slightly larger 33cm deck/blade size and a little more powerful 1400W motor. The VX version of the 330 has an additional vision window on the grass collection box.

The length of the cable (12 metres) and size of the collection box (20 Litres) are the same across the range of Easi Glide mowers.

I have created a comparison table below to show the differences between the range of Flymo Easi Glide mowers to assist with your choice.

Conclusion

Flymo Easi Glide 300 Review

For those with a smaller lawn, this Flymo Easi Glide 300 is a perfect machine. Some people will be glad to sacrifice extras, for something like this that will cut the lawn, and that is it. If so, a small grass bin is not an issue either. If lifting strength is an issue, a small box is an advantage as well.

The blade is flat and potentially easy to sharpen, but replacement blades are so inexpensive that it would not be worth the effort. The biggest issue for those with uneven gardens is the lack of a height adjustment lever and having to take the blade off to add spacers, however, as already mentioned, once you’ve found the optimum height for your lawn, your are more than likely to leave it set at that.

The reduction of parts has kept the price and weight right down, and that is the audience this mower is aimed at; somebody who wants a simple, great value mower that will get the job done with least effort.
