Flymo - Easier by design

About Flymo

In 1964, Karl Dahlman recognised that people were expected to push heavy wheeled lawn mowers up and down their lawns. Not only that, but the bulky mower design meant that cutting close to the edge of gardens was incredibly difficult. Karl Dahlman took it into his own hands to revolutionise gardening for the better. He understood that gardeners wanted a lightweight machine that was easy to manoeuvre, and could cut right up to the lawn edge. So, using a similar concept to that of a hovercraft, he designed a lightweight lawn mower, which glided across the grass on a cushion of air. Shortly after Dahlman’s first creation, Flymo was formed. The factory was based in Newton Aycliffe in County Durham, England and in 1965 the very first electric hover mower was sold.

Flymo’s hover mower was so successful that they were struggling to keep up with the demand. The revolutionary design even caught the interest of the electrical giant Electrolux, who acquired the company in 1969. During the next decade, updated versions of the hover mower were produced and in 1977 the first Flymo mowers floated off the shelf in the iconic orange colour that they still are today. In 1978 Electrolux acquired Husqvarna who manufactured chainsaws, lawn mowers and cutting machinery in Sweden, Norway and America.

As sales rapidly grew, Flymo began to expand its product range and develop new innovative ways to make gardening even easier. In 1988 the first 2-in-1 lawn trimmer and edger hit the shelves and took Flymo to the forefront of gardening technology. Today Flymo have a wide variety of products in their range. The lawn mower range features wheeled, hover, petrol and electric types, all of varied cutting widths and cutting heights so you can find the most suitable mower for your lawn. The extensive range of grass trimmers and edgers, hedge trimmers, scarifiers and blowers achieve neat and tidy lawns and hedges in no time at all. Whether you need a corded or a cordless machine, Flymo machines are packed full of features allowing you to cut your grass and hedges at ease and clear your lawn in no time at all.
