Written on: 03/04/2009 by A Schnauzer (1 review written)

The Flymo Garden Vac - XLB 250 unit was obviously designed as a blower. I appreciate it is a low cost unit. It was easy enough to start providing the instructions were adhered to. But I will not be replacing it with another… Read Full Review

If a piston and bore are, as you say- welded together then by that evidence alone it is a symptom of incorrect fuel/oil mixture and not a manufacturing fault.<br/><br/>How a so-called expert can state it isn't anything other than under oiling defied belief.

I like you would be inclined towards a similar conclusion, but like the service mechanic I'm aware of the possible effect of incorrect mixture. I mixed the fuel and tended to err in favour of too much oil. That's why I added the mechanic's comments. He didn't indicate that the bore was badly damaged and would have re-built the engine if I'd paid for it. I never saw the dismantled engine they phoned me with the estimate. I have written to Flymo asking for their comments.

Written on: 28/10/2008

I got a Flymo Garden Vac - it's the XLB 250 Twister blower model. The shredder doing a good job, I mean the bag fills very fast but hey what can you do. And you will get a wet bum when picking up wet leaves as the bag is not waterproof!
Vibrates quites a bit
Obvious design flaw having to screw the blower together due to vibration, quick fix put a screw in the package (mine didn't come with screw)
Can only be started on half choke, not a problem but no point in trying to start on full choke as you… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2008

overall the Flymo XLB 250 Twister Blower Vac is a lot more fun than sweeping, but it leaks oil all down one side? i agree the sreading element is not much like 16 leaves to 1 at all more like just the leaf squashed a bit… Read Full Review

Very misleading about the shredding! If you just want a powerful vacuum then it is good. I was hoping for longer times between emptying bag and to be able to empty it straight onto compost heap… Read Full Review
