Flymo Speedi-Mo 360c Review UK

As spring rolls in, lawns start to grow back at full speed and it’s time to start planning the first cut of the season. Cutting your grass during the spring is important to bring your yard back into life after so many days deprived of sunshine’s extravagant potential. After assessing your yard’s situation and clearing up all the debris that might have accumulated from the winter, it’s now time to give some love to your lawn. 

The first cut of the season is essential if you want to have your lawn ready and at its best for the summer, where you and your family can enjoy parties outside, play, and overall outdoor relaxation. 

For that you might be looking into exchanging your own lawnmower for a new one and we’re here to help you out with that decision. 

The product we are going to review today is the Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C. It is an electric wheeled lawnmower made by Flymo which promises a lot of power for its small size. According to the producer, it is “the ideal lawn mower for first time home buyers as it cuts medium to large sized gardens.” 

Price-wise, it is a very economical and very popular model with staggering reviews, which seems to deliver its price in value.

Product Overview  

The Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C Electric Wheeled Lawnmower is advertised by Flymo as being designed for large lawns. It has a powerful electric motor of 1500 Watts and a 36cm (or 14.17 in) cutting width, ideal for medium lawn sizes. 

It is packed with features to help you save time, including a large 40L grassbox which reduces the number of stoppages when you’re cutting your lawn. It comes with a 12m-long cable, excellent for small to medium-sized lawns. Speaking of stoppages, it’s lightweight and easy to carry, it has a support handle which enables transportation to and from the garden more easily. Its compact size most probably won’t take much space in your storage as well, since this lawn mower was built with folding handles, useful for folding it down and tucking it neatly in your shed, garage, or indoor spaces such as cabinets if that’s your household layout. 

While cutting the grass, you can effortlessly change the cutting heights with a simple lever on the side of the mower, near the left wheel, which comes with 5 different possible heights from 25mm to 65mm. Its cutting blade is made out of metal and quite thick, making it more durable and cutting sharper and closer to edges than the older Flymo Speedi-Mo’s models. The blades are safely protected and they will fully stop within 3 seconds once the lever is disengaged. Blades are also easily replaceable, in case you need them, and you shouldn’t face any problem finding them online.

This particular model doesn’t come with a rear roller, for that there are other Flymo products, such as the Flymo Chevron 32v Electric Lawnmower. For this reason, you can’t expect to get any lawn stripes with this product, unfortunately.

The Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C Electric Wheeled Lawnmower also doesn’t come with clips for storing the cable. Flymo’s recommendation is winding the cable loosely and storing it either inside the grass box or around the handles of the machine, whether they are folded or not. 

It comes with a 12 month warranty, which can be extended online for another year, or you’ll also have the option to purchase a third year of warranty as well.

What and who is this product useful for? 

The Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C Electric Wheeled Lawnmower is perfect for medium-size households. If you don’t have a large lawn, you won’t have any trouble with this model of lawnmower, designed specifically to be convenient, timesaving, and effective. 

It’s not battery-powered, so you won’t have to remember to recharge your product before cutting your lawn. The cable allows for plenty of movement around your yard and this particular model cuts even closer to the edges than previous models. Some users have reported that they don’t need to use clippers anymore near fences or walls, so close the cut of the Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C is. 

If you have limited storage space, this product might be the one for you as well. Due to its folding mechanism, it will fit in very small spaces with no hassle. 

Users have also reported that this Flymo model allows for a perfect cut on uneven lawns, therefore if you have bumpy, patchy, or an irregular lawn, you shouldn’t have any trouble ending up with aesthetically beautiful, even grass. 

This particular model is also ideal for people who are not used to or dislike the heaviness of petrol mowers. Particularly elderly people, adolescents, or people with any physical disorders, such as arthritis shouldn’t feel this lawnmower is too heavy for them. It’s very lightweight and makes it easier to manoeuvre around your yard.

Pros & Cons of the Product

  • Engine is more powerful than older models of its kind 
  • Exceptional at a higher height setting 
  • Lightweight for easy transportation 
  • Very manoeuvrable, easy to steer and turn 
  • Can be quite compact after folded, fits almost any storage space or shed, allowing the possibility to even store indoors, if that’s what you need

  • No hidden features 
  • Comes with a grass box for collection which holds a good amount of grass at each time
  • Motor goes off constantly, with no bumps 
  • Good for using on damp grass

Cons:

  • Warranty doesn’t cover “cosmetic parts” 
  • Lacks a bit when it comes to shorter heights, depending if you prefer really short trims, it might be a big disadvantage 
  • Grass box can be fiddly when assembles in some cases 
  • Because it’s lightweight plastic, it might feel a little flimsy 
  • It doesn’t come with a rear roller, so it doesn’t do stripes 
  • Doesn’t come with a vision grass collection window 
  • Handle from the grass box might detach if pulled too hard 
  • Cord can be short depending on your lawn’s size 
  • Doesn’t come with a cord handle or niche space for it 
  • Because of the large capacity of the grass box, it can be heavy to be moved around when full 

Our Honest Review 

We received our Flymo Speedi-Mo 360C in a really small box, definitely not expected for a full-blown lawnmower, but not a bad surprise at all. It came neatly packed in a cardboard box with the body of the machine as whole, plus the parts for assembling the grass box and handle separately. The blade already comes installed and there are no other parts to put together. Assemblage is very easy and, to most people, it shouldn’t require consulting the instructions manual at all. Assembling the Speedi-Mo 360C took less than 20 minutes. 

The lever to control the cutting height is easy to handle and the cable seemed just enough to our medium-sized yard. For larger lawns, it would probably be better a battery-powered or petrol-powered lawnmower, for convenience. 

Starting the mower is very easy, there’s a push button conveniently placed by the handlebar and its design makes it easy for you to keep pushing it while mowing. The motor is always constant, there are no variations in noise or power. It is unexpectedly powerful for such a lightweight product and for the whole 30-35 minutes of almost continuous use, we didn’t notice any loss in speed or capacity. 

We did have to stop one time to empty the grass box, but it’s not so much of a bother. The grass box detaches fairly easily and is just as easy to empty. It might spill a bit if it’s getting near its full capacity, but if you keep checking it – you have to open the little hatch on top to be able to look in – it won’t make so much mess. We also noticed some of the grass stays in the body of the lawnmower, but again, it’s not unexpected from this model of grass box. 

We consider this lawnmower to be adequately priced for the value you’ll get in return. It is lightweight, only a bit less noisier than other models, but powerful and it’s capable of neatly cutting edges, so you don’t have to come back with trimmers or clippers.
