Heathfield GB
Have used this product .5kW for 20 years possible have had 3 in that time, this is a new model number do not like the feel of it does not feel as solid. But have always had such good service from Flymo devices in general.
Mainly that large plastic wheel favourerd the small roller on the previous model
