Hi. I think I can put your mind at rest.  I work in a Flymo service agency. The Flymo Contour Cordless Power Plus has a guide wheel for accurate edging but, in common with all other Flymo edgers and trimmers, the actual cutting is done by a whirling thin (1.5mm) plastic cord that is designed to wear out and is fed from a replaceable reel under the cutter shield.  The only risk in cutting up to stone, concrete or other hard material is rapid wear of the plastic cord.  Unless your step is made of exceptionally soft stone there is no reason to think that the step will be damaged at all.
Good luck.  If this helps, please rate my response.

Dyson v6 surges on and off


Hello, this is Ava with Think Crucial.

There are a number of things you need to do that may solve the issue you're having with your vacuum. First, make sure that your battery is charging and working. Second, check the MAX button. If the MAX button lights up and flashes when your Dyson cordless vacuum keeps pulsating on and off, hold the power button and depress the MAX button to turn off that function. You may have to try a few times to get the hang of it. And lastly, look for any blockages in attachments because the pulsating is caused by a lack of airflow as the motor is protecting itself by pulsating and then ultimately cutting out.

You can check this video tutorial which will teach you on how you may fix it:

Roller that picks up dirt does not move or suck


The roller may be clogged with debris or the drive belt (if there is one) may have broken. The lack of suction could be due to a clogged intake.

How can I tell if my Dyson DC 35 cordless uses 220 volt as power supply to change battery. The one I purchased is advertised to do so. This is because I purchased it to use in the Philippines


Your devide should have the indications on electric input on a small plaque. Actually, it it's cordless, it works with a rechargable battery so most probably you should look at the charger unit. Probably it's 110/220V and has a swith somewhere,
Don't you have a user's manual?

Read here, might give you some clue:

Should a Dyson 45 battery work on a Dyson 44 motor head?


The listings on 3rd party batteries like at NewEgg (
HQRP Battery for Dyson DC31 DC34 DC35 DC44 DC45 DC56 Series plus HQRP... ), Ebay (
NEW DYSON DC44 DC45 VACUUM Battery Type 2000Mah CORDLESS DC34 DC35 4402B ), and others lump the battery for the DC44 and DC45 together, so you're probably fine.

You may want to take the battery to a Batteries Plus or such - sometimes a battery will show voltage just fine, but choke once there's a load on it. They have the gear to tell (same as with car batteries)

Good Luck
