Flymo Easi Glide 330 (VX) Review

Flymo Easi Glide 330 (VX) ReviewSummary

Flymo’s Easi Glide 330 (VX) is the big brother of the Easi Glide 300 and offers a larger 1400W motor and some extras that make it more user-friendly. The mower uses a hover system to reduce effort when moving around your garden and it is aimed at small to medium garden sizes. The Flymo Easi Glide 330 has a respectable 33cm cutting diameter with an integrated 20 litre grass collection box and weighs in at only 8.8kg.

Easi Glide 330 Basic vs Easi Glide 330VX – What’s the Difference?

There are two versions of the Easi Glide 330, the Basic and the VX model. The difference is simply that the VX version has a vision window and the Basic model does not. Apart from that, they have the same features and dimensions.

Main Features 

  • Rating: 9.6/10
  • Lawn Size: small to medium
  • Power: 1400 Watt
  • Cable Length: 12 metre cord, mains power
  • Blade Length: 33cm, metal
  • Number of Cutting Heights: 4 (from 10mm to 30mm)
  • Grass Box Capacity: 20 L
  • Weight: 8.8 Kg

Power System

The 330VX makes use of a slightly stronger 1400 watt motor that spins at 4,300 rotations per minute than its smaller brother (Easi Glide 300). This is the same RPM as the 300 model, though offering more torque. And this is more than enough power for the blade and for the fan to lift the mower off the ground to hover.

Power Cable

Flymo Easi Glide 330 VX Review

The Flymo Easi Glide 330 comes with a preinstalled 12 metre cable, making it ready to go. But if you need a longer cable, the manufacturer makes longer cables that you can rewire yourself.

Considering the size of lawns that this machine is intended for, a 12 metre cable is an acceptable length to offer.

Blades

The blade is made from metal, and Flymo recommends the blade be changed rather than sharpened when they stop working. Original replacements from Flymo are inexpensive and easy to find, and they will last well.

Height Adjustment

There are 4 cutting height levels to choose from on this Flymo Easi Glide 330, ranging from 10mm to 30mm. Adjustments are made by adding or removing a spacer from between the blade and the motor. This is unavoidable since the gap between the deck lip and the lawn needs to stay constant for hovering.

In the real world, most operators will not change the cutting height once they have found the ideal position.

This is a quick and easy process and can be seen in the video below.

 

Cutting Diameter

The blade is 33 centimetre in diameter, 3 centimetres longer than the Flymo 300. This comes to a cutting area increase of over 10% over the Easi Glide 300, which is substantial.

Roller (Stripes)

There are front rollers on the mower, to help the unit ride over small obstacles in the garden, but there is no fitted roller or striper. As with the 300, the weight of the machine’s air pressure pressing on the grass as it travels will line up the grass. But it does not have the weight to make lasting stripes.

At the front of the Flymo Easi Glide 330 there is a roller but this is purely used to manoeuvre the machine when not in use, for easy transportation.

Grass Box Capacity

Despite having a larger motor, the grass box capacity is the same at 20 litres, which is still more than sufficient for trimming a small lawn. The lid of the grass box has a clear screen installed, that the operator can use to judge when the box is full and in need of emptying.

Flymo Easi Glide 330 Practicalities

A folding handle converts 135 centimetres down to a convenient 69 centimetres for storage. The Flymo Easi Glide 330 is lightweight, so lifting it onto a high shelf is possible for most people’s ability. And the small grass box window (VX models) makes it easy to see when the cuttings need disposing of.

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 not in use. This is a nice touch from Flymo as it saves you having to carry the mower to the shed or garage.

Another great feature of this Flymo Easi Glide 330VX is the dual starter handles suitable for both, left and right-handed users, as only one handle needs to be held at any one time. This also can assist when manoeuvring the mower around flower beds and obstacles in your garden.

Safety Features

To start-up the mower, there is a safety switch that needs deactivating before the machine will run for additional safety. And if the cable is damaged, the power surge switch will cut power to the machine.

Mulching

 There is no mulching function on this machine. The design does compact the grass more than many other models, meaning that it needs less routine emptying.

  • Easi Glide 330VX

  • User Manual

Pros 

  • Grass Viewing Window
  • Powerful Motor
  • Compact and lightweight
  • Simple to use

Cons

Should You Buy this Flymo Easi Glide 330 VX?

This is a mower for convenient use on a small to medium sized lawn. The Flymo Easi Glide 330VX is for those that want a small, lightweight and compact lawn mower that is quick to set up and start using.

This mower’s ideal for those that:

  • People with small to medium sized gardens (250m² or less).
  • People that require lightweight, quiet and easy to use hover mower.
  • Those that are looking for a functional, reliable and good value mower.
  • Those that requires a good sized 33cm cutting width.
  • Requires a respectable 1400W motor for longer/thicker lawns.
  • Those that require a foldable handle mower for compact storage.
  • People that like a trusted and well supported brand – Flymo.
  • Those that require a mower where parts are easy to obtain.

Conclusion

If the aim is to keep a small lawn in check, then this is the perfect machine. It is small enough to live in a small box in the garden or even under the stairwell. The 330VX is clean and quiet, with few moving parts.

Taller operators may find it little uncomfortable to use this mower for longer periods as the handlebars cannot be extended. This is standard across most mowers at this price point and means that the operator may find themselves bending over the machine to push it.

Flymo Easi Glide 330 Review

Another great feature of this Flymo Easi Glide 330VX is the rate at which it compacts the grass clippings into its 20 litre grass collection box. This helps to reduce the number of stops and trips needed to be made to the compost bin.

In summary, this is a fantastic  hover mower that is not going to break the bank. It has features that will make cutting your lawn a breeze as opposed to paying for features that are gimmicks and will never be used. This mower can simply be pulled out of the shed or garage, plugged in and will get the job done with minimal fuss and effort. Remember this is a trusted Flymo, they have been in the hover mower business for decades and really do know  how to make a functional, well-built and good value hover mower.

For larger lawns, over 300 metres squared, you would need to look for an alternative hover mower that has a larger deck size and a more powerful motor such as the Flymo Ultra Glide (1800W motor and 36cm cutting width, 30 L grass box).
