“Back left side wheel could not be fitted”

Written on: 21/04/2014 by Young484 (1 review written)

I noticed in B&Q Meir Park, Stoke-on-Trent that the left side rear wheel fell off when lifting the machine to assess the weight. On building the machine at home, it was evident that the thread was wrong on the same wheel and so it was back to B&Q. They admitted that they knew the machine was faulty and that they had three returned the same day. Much to my amazment, and anger, they had sold a machine knowing that it was not fit for purpose. I opted for a McAllister MRS1400. It certainly cleared… Read Full Review

“really great as an ornament, rubbish as a lawnrake”

Written on: 29/07/2013

The 340 looks great, works for half an hour before it snaps the belt for the second time I have had to replace the drive gears too. Not once have I actually managed to do the whole garden before the belt breaks.I give up with it and it will be going back. Flymo.... what on earth are you doing!… Read Full Review

“Disappointing considering the reputation of Flymo”

Written on: 19/11/2011 by charlievictorbravo (1 review written)

I bought my Flymo Lawnrake Compact 340 second hand and found it needed a new motor which I bought and installed. I used it last year and after half an hour it stopped working. It had stripped the teeth from the drive belt and damaged the flange that keeps the belt on the drive pulley! I bought a new belt and drive pulley flange and installed them last week. I used the rake for a hour or so and it packed up - again the belt's teeth were stripped but this time the drive pulley (made of plastic)… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/05/2010

Bought from B&Q end of last season. Didn't get around to using it. Assembled it w/e. ready to spring clean the lawn. Worked fine for about 40mins on short, newly mowed, lawn with some patches of moss in shaded areas. Motor then smoked and stopped. Will be taking it straight back to B&Q in the hope of a refund. Obviously motor is inadequate for the purpose. Advised to think twice about this product as replacement motor for £20 may only last as long as original!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 16/10/2009

Had two of these Flymo scarifiers but the motors burnt out after two hours use. The first one was under warranty and replaced by B&Q unfortunately the second was out of warranty and is now in the bin. I contacted Flymo and basically they just told me to get lost. In fact the last E Mail them from them was very rude and insulting and I thought it was only the customer who cracked up. I only realised why when I read the reviews. When I replied and commented on their surprising attitude I have… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/06/2009 by sosimple (1 review written)

After hireing a monster petrol scarifier for a garden customer, and being disappointed with the results, I bought the Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 from Amazon for under £50 (the cost of 2 days hire!) I am very pleased with this little gem. Took about an hour and a half to really 'do' a third of an acre. One thing to remember is that it cannot be 'steered'ALWAYS lift the back wheels when turning! and obviously stop the motor when doing so, otherwise yous might overheat too. Also make sure you… Read Full Review

The Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 worked well for 5 hours After around 5 hours work in two sessions,I had to replace all of the 42 tines and started up the machine.It packed in !!!
It appears that the gear on the motor which drives the belt had chewed up the drive belt,because of the wear on the plastic gear.You can only buy a new motor as the plastic gear is integral to the motor and not available separately from the motor.Cost to replace plus labour is £60 ++… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/04/2009 by mycraigydon (1 review written)

The motor of our Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 burnt out after around a total of five hours use - two sessions of 2 1/2 hours each. it was at the highest setting and used after mowing. The motor was not labouring and only a couple of tines broke so I was not abusing it. I also made sure the side and internal air vents were kept clean of debris too! Not for large lawns, may be OK for regular maintainance of postage stamp size gardens where it is used for just 20 mins each time… Read Full Review
