Flymo is one of the most popular lawn mower manufacturers in the UK, offering quality products at cost-effective prices. Having designed the first-ever hover lawn mower, Flymo continue to impressive with this style of mower, with the UltraGlide being another great example of this.

The Flymo UltraGlide is easily one of the most powerful electric hover lawn mowers on the market today. Sporting a powerful 1800W motor, the UtraGlide utilises Flymo’s patented DuoTech for even better performance.

This technology provides a powerful vacuum that lifts and straightens all uncut grass for an efficient cut. As the blade cuts the grass, it does so with the upmost precision before firing it up into the chute and into the 30L grass collector.

Electric lawn mowers are traditionally less powerful than their petrol counterparts, but the 1800W motor in the UltraGlide makes it one of the most powerful of its kind. It won’t struggle with longer grass or thick growth filled with weeds, unlike many electric mowers.

The cushion of air produced by the UltraGlide makes it simple to operate. It is significantly lighter and more mobile than a rotary lawn mower, weighing an impressive 12kg, so anyone that wants a powerful mower yet doesn’t have the strength to operate will want to check out the UltraGlide.

Even when manoeuvring over long or wet grass, the UltraGlide doesn’t feel too heavy or cumbersome. Hover mowers are also great for cutting irregular shaped lawns, being especially effective around curved borders and beds, as well as being easier to use on sloped lawns.

With a 36cm cutting blade, the UltraGlide is a great mower for medium to large size lawns. It’s even ergonomically designed, which allows it to get closer to walls, fences, and over edges than most other mowers.

Furthermore, the blade is adjustable to five different cutting heights ranging from 13mm to 32mm. Its easy to switch between these too, with a single lever action used to adjust the cutting blade to suit your needs.

This is an important feature to look out for if you intend to mow your lawn year-round. Depending on the season, grass needs to be cut at different lengths to ensure a healthy growth, so whether you need to take more length in the summer or less during the colder months, the UltraGlide has you covered.

To ensure using the UltraGlide is easy for everyone, Flymo have made the handle adjustable to suit various heights. The spring assisted handle is simple to adjust, being moved via spring for quick and easy adjustments.

In a more unique feature for a hover lawn mower, the UltraGlide features two front-wheels. While these have no effect when the mower is operated and hovering from the cushion of air, they make the UltraGlide easy to move into the shed when its switched off.  

All in all, the Flymo UltraGlide is an excellent electric lawn mower. One of the most powerful hover mowers on the market, it is easy to use and provides a quality finish every time.
