Flymo GardenVac 2700 Electric Garden Vacuum

  • Product Details

    Flymo is a company best known for its hover mowers, which famously use a fan to create a cushion of air upon which the lawnmower can float. Given this experience with utilising fan technology in creative ways, it is perhaps unsurprising that Flymo’s GardenVac blower/vacuums are equally excellent and have fast become some of the UK’s most popular domestic leaf blowers. The GardenVac 2700, for example, provides a superb balance between power, versatility and user convenience, making it easier than ever to keep your garden immaculately tidy all year round.

    Capable of producing a maximum airflow of up to 15m³/min at 59m/s, the GardenVac 2700 makes domestic clearance work pleasingly simple and can be used to tidy loose leaves, litter, empty cans and other debris from lawns, paths and driveways. Weighing only 5.1kg and ergonomically designed with a sturdy handle for a secure grip, the GardenVac 2700 is also gratifyingly easy to handle so can be used to achieve great precision when removing leaves and grass cuttings from the garden.

    The dual blower/vacuum functionality of the GardenVac 2700 provides superb convenience, and with an easy to use lever making it quick to switch between modes you can first blow loose leaves into a single pile before changing to vacuum mode and clearing the whole lot in one fell swoop. A unique ‘jet-vac’ mode, moreover, boosts the power of the vacuum mode to help when picking up wet leaves and other stubborn material. To further ensure efficiency when taking on heavier workloads the GardenVac 2700 also shreds leaves as they are collected (with a mulch ratio of 3:1), thereby making the most of the high capacity 40 litre collection bag included as standard.

    Furthermore, as the GardenVac 2700 is designed for home use it is powered by a brilliantly quiet and clean running 2700W electric motor, allowing you to work in comfort at all times and achieve great results without disturbing the neighbours (a notorious problem when using a petrol powered leaf blower). Additional benefits of being powered via the mains electricity include the reduced service requirements and running costs (as you will never need to stop and refuel), while the simplified design of the GardenVac 2700 also means that it is significantly more reliable that most petrol leaf blowers.

    This dependability is further underlined by the GardenVac 2700’s “clean fan” system, wherein the airflow generated by the fan is diverted down a chute into the debris bag. This system helps to prevent blockages from developing, using a clever shredding line system to shred leaves without the risk of clogging involved in a “dirty fan” system. This, along with a sturdy build, means that the GardenVac 2700 is capable of offering many years of superb, user-friendly performance while requiring very little maintenance.

    About Flymo
    Inspired by the invention of Christopher Cockerell's hovercraft several years earlier, it was in 1964 that Karl Dahlman's hover mower design won a gold medal at the Brussels Inventors' Fair, thereby marking the beginning of one of the best known brands in British gardening. Full-scale production of petrol-powered Flymo hover mowers was in place by 1965, based in the new factory at Newton Aycliffe, County Durham. A few years later the first electric hover mowers were launched and a whole new world of mowing was available to the British public. Flymo hover mowers have been finding homes in British garden sheds ever since.

    The Flymo hover mowers brand has gone from strength to strength since these early days and it is hard to imagine visiting a garden centre now and not seeing the bright orange machines lining the aisles, with tools varying from battery powered grass trimmers to electric garden vacuums. Now part of the Electrolux Group, Flymo can rightly claim to sell over one million products within the U.K. during a financial year. They also boast a considerable export market; in doing so they have received multiple Queen's Awards for their achievements.
