FlyMow: Hovercraft Lawnmowers

November 27th 2006 17:59
Hovercraft Lawnmower

Who wants wheels these days when you can just fly? And who wants to navigate a clumsy lawnmower around the yard when you can just let it hover it's way through the unwanted grass?

Yeah that's right, lawnmowers now come in a non-wheeled model that is sure to turn some heads. With ten models to choose from you'll certainly find the FlyMow that fits you just right.

As quoted from the official webpage:

"Non grass collecting hover mowers offer the light, quick and easy way to mow your lawn. Ideal for mowing smaller lawns and difficult areas, easy to carry and store away.

Flymo’s Hover Collect range as featured on TV has everything you need to make gardening easier. They can collect and compact more grass for less emptying.

The unique Easi-Reel cable storage feature can store the mower cable away neat and tidy when not in use."

Hank Hill is not going to be happy about this!

Can you change the height? If it hits a root or a rock, will it bounce up and take out the operator? I guess I'll need to stop by the site to see if it costs a zillion dollars.

Not sure about the height, er, I mean, fan speed adjustments.

They look cool, and they're cool in theory, but I like my riding lawnmower.

Good point. Even if I wanted one of these, my husband will never relinquish the riding lawnmower.

I have had a fly mow since I was a kid. They are now new and in some instances considered antiques.
Mow height (used to be) adjusted by a tube and an adjustable air nozzle. more/less air make the thing fly higher/lower.
I have seen people use these for like ditch banks and odd angle areas with some success.
Drawback = flying equals pushing down air which also pushes down your grass.

I loved my flymow. This little orange machine would mulch as it cut and go right over most sidewalks. My brother accidently put regular gas in it and burned the engine up. I have held onto it for the past 20 years in hope of coming across an engine that would work on it. It also worked great for sweeping off the sidewalks at the end of a cutting day.
