Rated 4 out of 5 Overall a good machine
The Flymo Compact 3400 is a powerful machine that lifts the moss and dead grass easily especially as it had 2 years of thatch to cope with. The adjustable height is of distinct benefit.
One aspect that could do with improvement is the area where you place your hand to lift the grass catcher this looks as if it could be a weak point in the design.

This is the ideal item to remove most of your moss and thatch out of your lawn.
easy to push around,just remember to empty the box when it fills up. The window in front of you while your pushing is really handy.
Some lawns you might need to go over 2 or 3 times but by removing moss and thatch it helps grass to florish.
Your lawn will look a bit scruffy after raking it but dont worry,
your see the difference in a few days.
My lawn looks really good lot less moss and thatch more grass excellent.
would recommend this to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oldfogy Does what it says
Yes, the machine does exactly what it's meant to do and no problem with that.
But I found it very awkward when filling refuse sacks with all the rubbish it pulled out of the lawn as there is nothing proper to hold on-to, just a shame they did not put a handle of sorts at the front of the collection box.
For me storage is a problem and for a smallish machine it takes up quite a lot of room, mainly because once assembled the handle is rigid, unless you dismantle it each time when not being used
Would I recommend it?

This is a wonderful machine. I bought it because the box is reasonably large and the individual rake blades looked quite strong compared with the other machine in the store. I have just spent the afternoon raking the lawn and the ease of use and efficiency amazed me. Even so, the box filled up very quickly with moss - in the worst parts, an eight yard run would fill the box . The vision panel behind the box is really useful to see when it is full. Well worth buying this robust machine - and it was very easy to construct.
