    A dealer in town had one of those hover mowers one time. My understanding they are for cutting swampy places and such and are used at golf courses a lot.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    Why do you type Flymo?????
    These mowers have been around for over thirty years.
    Used initially for bunker and bank mowing on courses yet have a solid following in the UK/Europe for residential sites. A transport wheel kit is available and these mowers work quite well.
    The one my company has is for retention pond bank mowing.

    Yup they have been around for a long time. Neat little mower used for cutting banks and swampy areas.

    Check out the hover mower made by Eastman. I have wanted one fora long time but can't bring myself to plop down the $900 for it. I have heard over and over that the Husqvarna hoverers are crap, so avoid those. I have heard good things about Flymo brand and especially the Eastman's.

    I remember seeing one of those in a mower/bicycle shop back in the 60's when I was but a wee lad. That was a neat shop. They had a chrome plastic toy tommy gun that I saved for a year to get. Not PC these days. A 'chopper' scooter that my dad would never buy me. And a unicycle with a seat so high it had a chain drive.

    A co. called Allen makes a decent hover as well.
