Husqvarna Flymo Contour Cordless Battery Grass Trimmer and Edger : Five Stars

Brilliant machine, has saved so much time and so easy to use.

The new flymo grass trimmer allows you to easily remove the battery for charging, via a mains plug and lead; instead of having to hang the whole machine on a wall mounter charging dock. A big improvement plus the whole machine feels lighter without the very heavy battery unit used previously.

Brilliant piece of equipment my allotment path has never looked better.

No more extension cord and holding lead up to strim this is brilliant strimmer saves me on time also as cuts more area loveeeeee it.

  • A brilliant lawn edge trimmer
  • a much improved charging arrangemnt
  • Does the job well

Flymo Contour Cordless Battery Grass Trimmer and Edger, 24 V, Cutting Width 25cm

  • Telescopic handle which is easy to adjust to the user’s height
  • Plant guard to protect trees and plants plus unique wheel for easy edging
  • Simply convert from trim to edge by twisting the cutting head
  • Large foot pedal for easy adjustment to reach awkward areas
  • Adjustable steady handle with soft grip for greater control and comfortable use

Works well and makes edging the lawn very easy. More powerful than the previous 18v version but how soon till the battery need replacing is the real test as they cost virtually as much as a new machine.

Although if i had cleaned the battery terminals on the old one i may not have bought this oneit does an excellent job and the battery life is very good. I can trim my lawns twice between charges.

Ideal for working away from home when there is no electricity available, easy to operate and easy to adjust line feed.

The flymo strimmer was a little difficult to put together being one person but highly delighted with performance of it in the garden.

Not at the moment used it yet.

Ok for edging – not very good for strimming.

Easy to assemble and with its roller, it’s very lightweight to use.

Had one before and found that it edges the lawn with ease and when old one failed had to have another.

Ok for edging and light/medium strimming but you will need a heavier guage line for thicker grass and nettles.

Have been using this for my 40m2 small garden since last 3 months. It’s a bit heavy than expected and the battery dies out quickly (takes a while to charge fully again). It can’t handle tall grass very well. I am buying an electric mower with grass box that collects grass automatically. I will use this only for trimming edges, it does a good job there.

Works well and was well packaged.

I am delighted with my flymo cordless grass trimmer it does the job in no time and a lot easier with better results.

My previous one worked fine but the re-chargeable battery failed after about 3 years. The replacement battery was only a little cheaper than the new machine. This distressed me from a waste and sustainability point of view but i bought the new one to at least get the warranty.

Very good except for price of spare battery.

This strimmer does what it’s supposed to do. Added bonus no fiddly wires as its cordless. Prompt delivery and easy to assemble.

I use it for trimming lawn edges and it does a good job.

Good product and fast delivery, would use again and recommend.

    I think this strimmer is really really good. The edging tool is brilliant. I think flymo is the only strimmer with the wheel design and this makes it just so easy to trim the edges of your lawn. It makes the job look so professional. It’s great as a normal strimmer as well and the battery lasts a decent amount of time. When the battery is fully exhausted it does take a while to charge up. I usually leave it overnight which suits me.

    Replacement battery costs more than a new trimmer. Therefore the whole thing goes into landfill. Machine does the job well, but be prepared to replace it regularly.

    1. This strimmer works well enough, and being free of electric cables and temperamental petrol engines is bliss but, unfortunately, the battery charge only lasts for about 15 minutes at most. I need at least double this to edge all my lawns so, as a full recharge takes a frankly ridiculous 6 hours, i thought i’d order a spare battery from the manufacturers. They quoted £85 – i’d fallen off my chair before i thought to ask whether this included vat. 90 (including vat) for the whole machine, including battery, i thought i must have mis-heard, but no – that’s what it costs. So, amazingly, i’ve ended up ordering a second machine complete with battery for £69.

  4. U tube video helped with self assembly, but trimmer is much heavier than it’s mains operated counterpart, even without battery. Running time of 45 minutes average for battery operated machinery, but re-charging time of over 4 hours seems excessive. Would find it difficult to recommend this model were it not substantially cheaper than some other makes, and having used the mains operated contour model for some years, i know it is reliable and durable. Hope the battery operated model proves to be similar.

      1. 2.0 out of 5 stars Buy the mains version, batteries don’t last and are ridiculously expensive. says:
        This is an excellent strimmer and did everything that i wanted perfectly but. . The battery lasted less than 3 years and since a new battery is about the same price as a new unit there was no point in buying one. . The mains version is over £20 cheaper than a new battery so, because i’m so pleased with the actual strimmer, i purchased that instead. Ok there is the minor hassle of a trailing mains cable but it’s still a very good, powerful strimmer.

    This replaced my earlier model which had a separate bag for batteries and gave me good. Although the new model has the battery attached directly to the handle it is light and convenient. New addition is the foot pedal for turning the head over, but it’s lost the little pointer which showed the line of cut. The additional plant guard isn’t much use and is better left off. Overall, it’s a good strimmer.

    1. Battery has died after 3 years. Bit disappointed, new battery is £60, new unit £70.

    Perfect strimmer with reasonable grunt and battery life. Would recommend this to anyone as it’s easy to use and fairly lightweight.

    1. When i bought this in march 2015 i was very pleased with – for all the reasons other reviewers have given (light, no cord to worry about cutting etc. ) however after two years the battery has died making the strimmer useless unless i want to pay £69 for a new battery. I have now bought a corded strimmer which is much heavier but hopefully will keep going for more than two years.

    Battery lasted less than a year and replacement battery costs nearly as much as a new strimmer (rip off).
