General Comments
I got about 1 1/2 hours use out of mine, then the spikes stopped spinning. After investigation I noticed the drive belt had snapped. I spent all day on a Saturday looking for a replacement, with no success. So I waited until Monday, then I rang Flymo direct. After being put on hold for about 15 minutes, I managed to order a replacement and one spare, costing £12. When they arrived, I fitted it quite easily, but I noticed the new one was a little tight. I just assumed it was a precision part. Here goes... 20 minutes later smoke came out of the motor and made a noise. Back on the workbench, I took it apart and noticed the new one had pulled the motor out of alignment, and it was rubbing on the flimsy, cheap plastic casing. What a load of rubbish!! Who tests the Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 lawn rake?
