When it comes to lawnmowing everyone has their preference in machine. Some swear by their electric mower whilst others will not change from petrol. Some gardeners prefer a hover machine whereas others cannot see past the classic rotary lawnmower.
One thing is for sure, when Karl Dahlman invented the ‘Flymo’ in 1964 it changed the way we mow the lawn forever. Its unique design and advanced manner of operation, floating on a cushion of air meant that for its time it was simply revolutionary. And yet despite the hover mowers ground breaking introduction to the gardening world it did by no means mean the end of the classic rotary lawnmower.
