Hello there,

Once my brother had one of those ancient Flymo petrol hover models from way back - apparently it finally gave up last year. One of the engine supports had cracked and it was getting a bit unreliable close to the end. I'm not sure if that can be expected from any mower these days, petrol or electric. I've bought two over the last 15 or so years, and they're still both working fine. You may need to go to a lawnmower centre. When I last looked at the ones in the DIY sheds, they were all universal motor mowers like the flymo, although that was 10 years ago. A universal motor is cheaper, and unsuited for grass cutting.

Thanks and regards,
Dabney Walker
