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

Good Points
Collects moss, thatch etc very effectively.
Collection box works very well.
Comfortable to use (I'm 6'4").

Bad Points
Not cheap.
The motor burnt out on my model after less than 10 hours use.

General Comments
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 find out! The spring tines seem to point in the wrong direction for the rotation of the rake. None-the-less it seemed to extract the moss and thatch etc OK.

The handle is adjustable for people of different heights. Even at 6'4" with rather large feet I was not kicking the machine as I walked behind it (a problem I'm sure similar sized people can sympathise with). I have given such low scores because of the problem with the motor. If that had not packed up the scores would have been much higher, as I could not fault the machine.
