I bought this mower in 2005, it's now 2014. it's so far the only mower i have ever owned so i can't compare it to other mowers but all in all i have been very happy with it! Yes it is heavier than most mowers i have read up on, yes it hates collecting wet grass but i assumed all hover mowers would struggle to vacuum and collect wet grass?? It does claim to cut edge to edge but if you have border roll etc edging your lawn it obviously won't be able to cut right to the edge because the border… Read Full Review

The JCB ACR 310 will cut and collect grass just as the ads say --but only if the grass is really dry. Even slight dampness causes a real problem.
Bad build quality. I had to go all over mine and fit new better quality fasteners to stop it shaking apart.
I have had it for two years so it has now done approx 25 cuts of my garden and today it has stopped. I have stripped it apart and found the ball bearing on top of the motor has disintegrated due to being a cheap and nasty item. About 2p extra… Read Full Review

For a start my JCB ACR310 Electric 1200W Hover does not hang very well in a small shed with limited space. More inportantly, it only lasted 1/2 British wet weather season, i.e. 10 cuts.
Mine struggles to cut lawn after 1 weeks growth and starts to cut out intermittently.
Then cuts out more frequently until mower smokes and cuts out never to restart. I will NEVER BUY JCB products again as my last FLYMOW mower lasted 10 years… Read Full Review

The JCB ACR310 was OK at start but didn't take long for faults to start lasts maybe 5 min then smoke appears time to get a new one but definitely won't be a jcb model… Read Full Review

Grass box difficult to put on. Cuts out if grass is a little long. Utter rubbish, I bought it May 2007 and it lasted until June 2008… Read Full Review

I would never buy one of these lawn mowers again. I found it very difficult to put the grass box back on. I used it 3 times and then smoke came out of it… Read Full Review

I thought that this was a brilliant mower to start with. Then I looked at the build quality compared to Flymo. It is very bad. I would say dangerous. This is definitely the worst lawn mower that I ever bought. My last flymo lasted 18 years. I am now looking for another lawn mower. The basic problem is that it is very hard to make a lawn mower that hovers and collects grass properly. Even Flymo have not fully managed that yet. I am now opting for a wheeled lawn mower that collects grass… Read Full Review

It cost me '£80. I would never buy it again. In a way I'm glad it's broken because I can now buy another Flymo… Read Full Review

I am very disappointed with the JCB ACR310 Electric Hover mower 1200W. I assumed that I could rely on the JCB brand, but I bought this to replace a Flymo Turbo which I thought was the worst lawn mower I'd ever come across. This JCB proved me wrong!… Read Full Review
