Electrical And battery Operated Lawn Mowers
Micro lite and Turbolite:
These compact and lightweight lawn mowers have been made for small and medium garden and work efficiently. The sweep size is 33 CM and 40 CM. Cutting height of blades is 10 to 30 CM adjustable in 4 steps. Motor power is 1150 and 1500 watts respectively. Both the models have metal cutting blade for easy and effortless cutting and it comes with a retractable cord of 12-meter length.
Good points of Micro lite: Many users feel that this is a perfect one forsmall yard, light compact and handy. Not having a grass catcher may be a possible drawback, but as the grass cutting in small lawns is not very heavy, the cut grass left in place acts as a growth enhancing material and many advise against collecting it.
One of user followed the footsteps of his father. The father was a Flymo user for 15 years and was satisfied with the product. The son also bought Flymo not because his dad said but he himself was convinced about the usefulness of product right from start, and selected it based on quality.
Vision Compact Range
These lawn mowers come with a grass collector and compactor so you do not have to collect the grass separately.
The two available models are Vision Compact 330 and 380. The sweep diameters are 33 and 38 Cm. With a motor power of 1400 and 1500 watts respectively, they seem to be powerful motors. Garbage capacity is 30 and 40 liters respectively. Cutting height is 12 to 32 CM in 4 steps. The cable length is 20 meters for both.
The only negative point of this range seems to be the limited cable length supplied with the otherwise powerful motor. It can limit the use for a medium garden.
The Trimmer Range
If you just want to trim the grass in a specific area of you garden in quick time, Flymo gives two options in gasoline-operated trimmers, which are perhaps the lightest trimmers in the world. With a small 25 CC petrol engine, XLT250lite and XL2000reach are the two models developed by Flymo.
Besides this, there are other products for your garden small or large. The hedge trimmer, wood shark 400 (2200-watt) chainsaw can cut the wood easily and quickly. There are many innovations in the entire range of gardening tools by the company.
