We all like having a little grass around us so our homes can have that sparkling well kept look. This could be because we like having that touch with nature. It’s a good thing. I personally will freak out if I have to live for so long in a home where I don’t get to have as little as a flower in it.
Here is a Roundup
However, that’s the good stuff.
The bad stuff is that most people shy away from keeping lawns and grasses because they think it’s huge work. You have to tend to it and mow it and all of those things. Sometimes I want to look them in the face so hard and make them see that tending to lawns or mowing them is not the same as raising a child. Apologies to all the adorable little children.
But you know what I mean.
All that is needed to take care of a lawn is a lawnmower and a couple of minutes on your side. But some people think it’s really hard and it’s probably because they do not know how to choose their lawnmowers.
I have always had to depend mostly on Flymo lawnmowers to care for my lawn and they have always wowed me with their excellent products. And the electric Flymo lawnmower meets up with all my expectations.
This article is about to show you why Flymo Speedi Mo 360c is one of the Flymo grass cutters after my heart.
What is Flymo speedi mo 360c?
The Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C is a sturdy electric lawnmower that you can use for any garden size. It was created to cater to homeowners especially first-timers who have medium to large-sized lawns. This small Flymo lawnmower is just one of the wheeled lawnmowers made by Flymo. Mowers in the wheeled range are specially designed to easy and fast mowing mostly when cutting grass on unleveled grounds.
Flymo lawn makers specifically introduced Speedi Mo 360c for first-time users of lawnmowers. The build is simple, the grass box is easily removed and it has a handle that makes it less technical for first-time users.
With all the talk about first-time users, the product is not restricted to the as its powerful metal blade makes it great for experienced users too. It is powered by a 1500-watt motor that makes it good for a larger lawn.
It has a 36cm cutting width which is quite bigger than that of other like products and the 12-meter power cable means you can mow your way to your neighbors’ parking lot and back. Although some people will prefer this product to be cordless I don’t believe that is enough reason to shy away from using this great product.
This electric Flymo machine offers you five cutting heights which you can choose from according to your taste, the time o: the year and the last time you mowed your lawn.
You can adjust it to 20mm at a minimum and 60mm which can contain 40 liters of grass, people have continuously flocked to get this product. The grass box is also removed in a few seconds.
When you need to store this machine, you can fold the handle and fit in the mower in a tiny space in your shed or garage.
Folding the handle makes it a little over 11kg and this is one reason why I think you need it in your home.
However, when you compare Flymo lawnmowers there are still some little dents.

Value for money
Although this product looks like it has all of it build in plastic, it isn’t as fragile as it looks. It is able to go through several seasons of heavy chopping. You don’t have to get scared of using it to mow the wet lawns, stony parts of the lawn, twigs and storing it after use. This product is as strong and as any flymo wheeled lawnmower, but you probably will not be able to see that from its looks.
I like the fact that this mowers unique selling point is its simplicity. It doesn’t have to be as tedious as a space machine before it can serve as a lawnmower. If someone were to wake up from the stone ages, they’d probably need no lessons to use it.
Also, it has a great assembly. Any living thing with a brain can assemble it in no time. Yea, even a chicken, only a chicken doesn’t have hands. As soon as you have assembled it, you don’t have to have a Ph.D. in grass mowing from the University of Agriculture to use it, I didn’t have such qualification before using it. It is also easy to transport the trash because there’s a handle on the grass collector. Another amazing thing is you wouldn’t have to frequently empty it out because the grass box can accommodate a really good quantity of grass.
This mower is so lightweight and at first, I thought of it as the child of all mowers without teeth. But it proved me wrong. It cuts really well. The mower can be used easily on long or wet grass without any hassle. This means you don’t have to wait for the sun to dry the grass before using it.
It absolutely the grass at the edge and the cuttings are blown into the grass box which means less sweeping for the user.
Ease of use
This small engine is very easy to use. I find it very maneuverable. It may have the appearance of some inferior mower but it is actually superior to its closest kin, the hover mowers.
Apart from being very lightweight, it can cut grass really close to the fence edges, flowerbeds, and walls.
So, What’s The Verdict?
Right now I feel like a judge and I have to hit my gravel and make a pronouncement that will either send this Flymo speedi mo 360c lawn mower to jail on the shelves or set it free to roam in your lawn and inhabit your shed.
Well, after a lot of consideration and listening to both sides (winks) I have come to the conclusion that The Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C Lawn Mower is efficient. From the mere sight of it, it is easily underrated but this lawn mower surpasses our expectations. It has a great design, is powerful and relatively cheap for £90.90. Using this machine will bring joy to your heart and your lawn.
This does not mean there are no downsides. Well, the grass box is not constructed in a way that makes you realize when it is full but that can be overlooked.
Also, you have to really ensure you properly connect and secure the box because if it is not fitted properly you may be creating more work for yourself. But when the attachment is properly done, it is easy for you to collect your cuttings.
The Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C uses a high power motor and that means you can use it on both large and medium-sized gardens. However, because it uses a cord, there will need to be a power extension cable in your lawn so that the 12-meter power cable will be convenient for you unless your lawn is tiny.
Operating this mower is easy but it cannot be carried without a few pants and gasping because it is somewhat heavy and bulky. It is great because you can also use it with a strimmer if you wish to clear some beds and bushes.
Basically, it comes with a lot of good points on its report. It is adaptable and powerful. I am impressed by the wide 32cm cutting width as only little effort can clear a large area, and quickly too considering its 40-liter collection box. There’s no stress in using it at all.
The mower comes with a 2-year warranty but can be extended to 5 years for just a little token. In the case of a fault, you can get a lot of spare parts from Flymo at affordable rates.
The general performance of Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C is great. I’ll give it a 4/5 score.
