Flymo lawn mowers are well-known in the mower industry for creating their popular hover mowers, however, they have also created other ideal lawnmower types such as electric corded lawnmowers or cordless lawn mower types.
The Flymo Speedi Mo 360C model we will review today is a perfect choice if you are after an affordable electric lawn mower for your small-medium lawns and don't need a petrol mower for large lawns.
To see whether or not this Flymo Speedi Mo model is right for you, we have reviewed the mower below, along with its most important features and pros/cons so as you can weigh up if this electric mower is the mower of choice for your garden.
This Flymo speedi mo electric mower is one of the most highly-rated popular speedi-mo lawn mower types on the market which are corded yet still powerful.
From a 36cm cutting width to an ideal cutting height range, this corded lawn mowers model comes with a great variety of features to mow your lawn with which we will review below in further detail.
In terms of power, the Flymo speedi mo mower comes with a 1500 watt motor which is powered via electricity from its 12m power cable. This mower is not cordless but has a long enough cable for freedom when mowing a small size lawn or medium-sized lawn and can be powered by a compatible extension cable too if needed.
For the low price of this Flymo Speedi Mo lawn mower, it is expected for the machine to come corded, not cordless and still offers a great level of power from its 1500W motor with no power interruptions that would happen with a battery mower that often runs out of charge during use.
The corded mains power system is also enough to tackle varying thickness of grass and still has freedom as it is above the average 10-metre power cord found on most other lawnmowers on the market of a similar spec.
Some obvious downfalls of a corded mower are that the cord will be more restricting on medium and larger-sized lawns, but other than that it is still a perfect lawn mower in terms of the power output from the motor.
For cutting your lawn, the wheeled mower comes with a 36cm cutting deck which makes it a quality mower for use on medium-sized gardens, it also has variable cutting heights which can be adjusted via its central handle lever in five different steps.
The adjustable height steps for cutting range from 20mm-60mm so as you can cut to the grass height you prefer, whether long or short. Its material is made of a durable metal blade too and can cut close to the edge of the borders of your lawn.
Overall, we think that the metal blade included with the speedi-mo mower is pretty standard for a corded wheeled lawn mower of this low price and good enough to cut thicker patches of lawn if needed.
The 36cm cutting width is great for more medium-sized gardens too, not just small lawns and it has a great range of height adjustment for its cutting blades which allow you to cut the grass short and professionally or use the height at max for more demanding lawns with thicker grass blade types.
It has been said that the sharp metal blade of this mower can snap, so you want to ensure you don't use the blade on thicker lawns with debris, you might struggle to use this mower blade size on larger lawn sizes too.
Design-wise, the Flymo Speedi Mo 360C excels for its price by incorporating its powerful 1500W motor into a light weight body of just 11.5kg, making the outdoor products model easy to move around.
The corded mower further comes with a carrying handle and a foldable handle to allow for more space for storage and it has a noise rating on its design of 87Db making it quiet to use even in the early mornings.
Total dimensions of the Flymo Speedi Mo come in at it 126 x 41 x 99cm.
In terms of design, this Flymo mower is super simple to use, push, carry and store away thanks to its handles and adjustability, we also rate the durability of this machine and its sound pressure level despite it being an electric mower.
Although this mower is heavier than some of the hover mowers Flymo has created and other corded mowers on the market, it is still a light in weight model at a very affordable price. The only thing it lacks is for the handle to be adjustable so as it can be comfortable to use for a variety of users.
This corded mower by Flymo does not come with a huge range of extra features such as mulching function due to its low price, however, it does come with a grass collection box of 40 litre which is easy to remove.
Its product details also state that it has a two-year warranty for buyers protection.
Overall, this Flymo Speedi-Mo mower does have a generous capacity of grass box but lacks extra features, this is probably down to its low price. The two-year warranty is great for buyers protection.
Its grass box might need to be emptied more often if you are mowing a medium-sized garden and it does lack a mulching option and rear roller for stripes and fertilisation.
Additional features such as grass box level indicator could have been handy too but can be added to the mower for a small cost.
Now we've discussed the most important key features of the Flymo Speedi-Mo corded electric mower, to help you make the right difficult choice about which type of mower you want, we have summarised the pros and cons of this mowers design below
Although the Flymo Speedi Mo lawn mower comes with standard features, it is very powerful for a corded mower thanks to its 1500W motor and powerful metal blade which is great for cutting medium size lawns.
For effective lawn maintenance, the mower is also very easy to function, with a lightweight of under 11.5kg, foldable handles, an easy lift lid grass box and great height adjustment levels, whether you have a short type of grass or long grass.
We additionally like this corded mower because of its low noise level, which unlike other garden power tools will not disturb your neighbours and household like a heavy-duty petrol mower.
Despite the Flymo corded lawn mower being a great model, it does lack some features and specs which are useful. For example, the mower's cutting width might be great for larger lawns, but the 12m power cord can still be restricting and dangerous, so you would have to use a compatible extension cord for larger lawns.
The electric mower by Flymo also lacks extra features such as a mulching option or rear roller and has no grass box level indicator which can be added at an additional cost. Its design doesn't state any safety feature too and has no adjustable handles.
To round up our Flymo corded lawn mower reviews, we conclude that you should buy this corded electric mower if you are looking for an easy to use a lightweight mower that will perform well on small-medium size lawns.
This mower is great in terms of power if you don't mind the watt corded cable and can get the job done, even if you have thick lawn patches.
We would not recommend buying this lawnmower however if you want an electric mower that has freedom due to its cord, this mower will struggle with tight twist and turns.
The mower would also not be suitable for larger gardens so you might want to invest in a high powered battery mower or petrol mower for big gardens instead.
How do you change the cutting height on a Flymo speedi mo model?
The cutting height of the Flymo corded mower can be changed easily via its central handle lever between the five different steps available so as you can cut the grass to your desired height ranging from 20mm-60mm.
Can you use a corded electric mower on wet grass?
No, it is not safe to use a corded mower on a wet lawn just in case of an electric shock, even if the cables are waterproof you should not risk this, especially if you are using an extension cord.
Would this electric mower be able to mow medium and large-sized lawns?
This electric mower can mow medium lawns with an extension cable for more freedom, the lawn mower might struggle on larger areas due to its small 36cm cutting width and cable which will be restricted, even with an extension cable.
Is there a grass box level indicator included with this Flymo model?
There is no grass box level indicator included with this model in particular but you can buy the same model with a vision window on its grass box for a small additional cost.
