What users think:

The Flymo Hover Vac 250 Hover Lawn Mower has received a range of feedback from users, highlighting both its positive attributes and areas of concern. Users appreciate its affordable price point, lightweight design, and ease of use, making it an accessible option for homeowners.

One of the key factors that users appreciate about the Hover Vac 250 is its affordability. Many users find it to be competitively priced, offering good value for the features it provides. This aspect makes it an appealing choice for budget-conscious individuals seeking a reliable lawn mower.

The lightweight construction of the Hover Vac 250 is another aspect that garners positive feedback from users. Its lightweight design makes it easy to maneuver and operate, particularly in smaller gardens. This feature proves beneficial for users who may have limited physical strength or mobility, as it reduces fatigue during the mowing process.

However, users have expressed concerns regarding the mower's grass collection capability. Some users find that the Hover Vac 250 does not effectively collect grass clippings, leading to a less satisfactory mowing experience. This limitation can result in clippings being left scattered on the lawn, requiring additional cleanup.

Another aspect that some users have mentioned is problems with the handle. They have reported issues such as the handle not staying securely in place or feeling flimsy during operation. These concerns raise questions about the overall sturdiness and durability of the mower's handle, which can impact the user's comfort and confidence while mowing.

In terms of build quality, some users have found the Hover Vac 250 to be less durable or flimsier than expected. They have expressed concerns about the longevity of the mower, particularly when subjected to regular or more demanding use. These observations highlight potential issues with the materials used in the construction of the mower.

Direct quotes from owners:

Really good and very light to use. My garden holds the water and can be difficult to cut at times. This lawnmower was brilliant and so easy to use. Very happy with this product


After 2 years I've been through 2 blades and both lugs that attack the handle to the mower have broken and required replacing. The grass collector is tiny and needs constant emptying. Not particularly good value for money. Cheap and nasty


Well… easy enough to assemble, not as easy to change cutting level though. Okay for the price, or so I thought at first. Huge bugbear is that the plastic bolts that fix the base of the handle to the machine keep pinging out from their sockets mid mow. They just push in but are very flimsy. The whole mower is flimsy, probably why it’s cheaper than some. Wouldn't buy again though, let’s see how long it lasts.

Price: £82
