Lawn mowers: Compare features & prices Flymo Ultra Glide review

The Ultra Glide is a new collecting hover lawnmower from Flymo that vacuums the grass so it stands up straight before it's cut. Flymo says this makes mowing with the Ultra Glide easier than with other hover lawnmowers, and we certainly found it comfortable to use. But does it cut better? Read on for our verdict.

  • Our researchers weigh the clippings held by the grass-collector - a large collector on your lawn mower means fewer trips to the compost heap for you.
  • Which? Gardening tests lawn mowers on long grass up to 10cm long, so after your holiday your lawn mower should still be up to the job.
  • We reveal lawn mowers that are heavy, awkward to use which and leave a poor finish on your lawn. It needn't be a real chore for you to get your lawn looking good for the summer.
