Features and Benefits

The Flymo Hover Vac 280 is a lightweight lawnmower that is quick and easy to use. This lightweight hover mower glides across the lawn making mowing your grass quick and easy, and comes fully assembled out of the box. This model is powered by a 1300 watt motor, and will cut your lawn with ease, thanks to the 28cm metal cutting blade. By having a lawnmower with a metal cutting blade, you can ensure that your grass gets a really clean and tidy cut. A clean cut across the grass blade prevents fraying, which can lead to a dried out and yellow lawn.

  • The Hover Vac 280 cuts and collects the grass as it goes. The 20 litre grass box is easy to access from the top of the hover mower and can be quickly and easily emptied.
  • Folds away for neat and tidy storage
  • Floats on a cushion of air and cuts easily in any direction
  • Grassbox collects and compacts cuttings for less emptying

Kitty 2 - 2 months ago

The worst mower I've ever had! Didn't realise it could be returned within 30 days (someone else bought it). Unless your garden is about 5 feet square, perfectly flat with plenty of border, and you're prepared to spend another hour sweeping up the cuttings that blow everywhere, don't bother! Surprisingly hard to manoeuvre as well - whoever invented the advertising slogan "It's a lot less bovver with a Hover" obviously has never used one!

Worst mower I've ever used.

Mr V Grumpy - 3 months ago

This mower lasted for only 3 cuts of a small lawn before giving up the ghost.
Grass collection pathetic - much of it was blown into flower border or path/gravel and had to be cleaned up. The cutting was patchy, leaving unequal heights of grass, needing another going over.
B & Q replaced it with a different model.
Ours was the second one returned to the store this afternoon - enough said.
Wish I had checked the feedback before buying.

Not as good as previous Flymo

X1X1 - 4 months ago

I got this to replace a previous 20 year old Flymo and it comes off badly in comparison.
On the plus side it's light and cuts well.
On the downside it has an attached cable, rather than a plus in - expensive repair if you cut it. The cable is relatively short - quite a pain. The worst is the saftey handle. It is very sensitive , relax your iron like grip for one second and it cuts out. It's only on one side so you can't even swap hands while mowing. These may all be new features that are standard so a different model may not be any better.

Rubbish!!!

I've used it twice and had no problems, since then I've used it two more times and it keeps cutting out every 30 seconds and its terrible at collecting the grass cuttings.

Tony Two Tribes - 6 months ago

Rubbish. lasted less than a month. Grass was not long so it is an inferior product.
2nd Item I have purchased from B&Q that I have had to return. Will shop elsewhere in future if I can. Wasted my time and petrol returning faulty inferior products.
