Flymo’s best-selling trimmer just got better

Consumer insight research revealed that a key concern when buying a battery product was “will the battery last long enough to complete the task?”. In answer to this Flymo has specified a 24v battery which allows the gardener to edge the equivalent of two football pitches on a single charge.

The Flymo Contour trimmer range was developed to make edging the lawn simpler by introducing a new unique wheel. This enables the gardener to walk behind the trimmer, making it easier to achieve a neat lawn edge.

2011 sees Flymo build on the success of its Contour range with the release of a cordless version of both the Contour 500XT and the Contour XT.

Consumer insight research revealed that a key concern when buying a battery product was “will the battery last long enough to complete the task?”. In answer to this Flymo has specified a 24v battery which allows the gardener to edge the equivalent of two football pitches on a single charge.

The new trimmers are also light and easy to use, weighing only 3kg, and have steady handles for easy holding. The 500XT is also fully adjustable for comfortable use.

The Contour battery trimmers can be changed from edge to trim mode at the push of a button and when trimming have a plant guard which can simply be flipped into place preventing accidental damage to flowers and trees.

The 500XT can also be put into ‘shrub’ mode. This enables the gardener to trim hard to reach areas such as under bushes, garden furniture and trampolines. The cable tidy allows for quick cable release at the push of a button and keeps everything neat and tidy when stored away.
