“Having used my rake a few times, yesterday it refused...”

Written on: 21/06/2007 by Rollerball64 (1 review written)

Having used my rake a few times, yesterday it refused to turn the rake, and soon smoke appeared from the air intake. Flymo were not available, as the lines were constantly busy. But they were contacted today, and without any problem, they volunteered to send me a replacement Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 lawn rake within the next 7 days… Read Full Review

“In a panic, I took the Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340...”

Written on: 22/04/2007 by numbnutz (1 review written)

In a panic, I took the Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 lawn rake apart to investigate! The drive cog and belt had melted. Why? - Because the motor cooling is a poor design! The air intake filter gets blocked immediately by debris, and then the motor overheats after 15 - 25 minutes use. There is no cut out, and so the motor drive becomes so hot the plastic drive cogs and belt melt until destruction!

Perhaps the drive cog should be metal, and you should get a few spare belts with it!

Spare parts… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2007 by Paul Lovelock (1 review written)

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… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/04/2007 by saxon5red (1 review written)

We feel that Flymo did not do it's home work on this product,it was a pity . It looks good and was easy to handle but burnt out on second use. For the money we feel it was very poorly thought through.
Come on Flymo get your act together. We would of liked to have had some use for our money… Read Full Review

I bought my Flymo 340 Lawnraker Compact last May, and I used it for 30 minute. I got it out to use today, and after 5 minutes it burnt out, so I returned it to B& Q and got my money back… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/08/2006 by Bob Cleveland (1 review written)

This week I decided to invest in the Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 and read the few reviews there were and certainly was slightly put off. However, I was able to examine a display model in our local B&Q and was impressed with the features and bought the machine. Today, Saturday, we spent about 4 hours using the raker with no hitches whatsoever and no problems with the motor. Thatch collection was very good, especially when compared with all the other models on the market in the home consumer… Read Full Review

“Having had a small Black and Decker Lawn rake for more...”

Written on: 12/06/2006 by Frank H (1 review written)

Having had a small Black and Decker Lawn rake for more than 20 years, it burnt out on Saturday last. We went to our local B&Q to buy a new lawn rake, and saw the Flymo, for which we have previously had a high regard. We liked the wider rake and the more powerful motor. How misled we were. Within half an hour, smoke started coming from the motor housing, with a distinct burning smell, and this continued when we had stopped raking and just had it on with no load… Read Full Review

I am taking my Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 lawn rake back to B&Q, as it is not fit for the purpose! It seemed OK for about 20 minutes, but then the motor burned out, after only 20 minutes use!… Read Full Review

“I bought the Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 because at...”

Written on: 10/05/2006 by Redsetter (2 reviews written)

I bought the Flymo Lawnraker Compact 340 because at 600w it had the largest motor out of all the lawn rakes I had looked at (much good that did as it burnt out after a short while)! While the machine worked, I was impressed at the way it collected the moss and compacted it in the box, which was easy to empty. It has 6 different height adjustments, but only the lowest one would lift any of the moss out of my lawn. The higher settings may be OK for leaves, but alas it did not last long enough to… Read Full Review
