wouldn't bother, not as powerful as hired version and your sub base is the most important part of a patio, type 1 doesn't take that long to barrow through and wack in layers, day at most. just hire for the day less hassle
Very good price but unless you need it right now not something to buy and store I'd say

Unless you are in the trade i.e landscape gardener / patio / driveway layer I think this would be used rarely once or twice if that - hire shops for this kind of gear is the way to go.

I think that's the OP'S idea though. Use it a few times then wack it on ebay and get back most of what you paid for it. Cheaper and less hassle than a hire shop.
I would suggest it's ok for lightweight jobs as it is only rated at 5kN. It's strength is when you want to prepare a base for concrete indoors where you don't want the fumes of a petrol powered plate.
For several years I have had the heavier petrol version, rated optimistically at 10kN, which has given results that compared well with a vibrating roller hired for a large job.
For compacting good quality bases this should be fine proving you take it slow and make several passes. Also good I expect for settling blocks where a petrol wacker plate can be liable to crack them.

Will hold off for a few days then, see if it s the one I want, thanks.
It will come back in stock more than likely on IW, if you are in no hurry its worth waiting
If it was this product on Ideal World then it was a bargain with a saving of over £100.
Unfortunately its no longer available, so not sure how you can compare the two deals?
I cant find it on Ideal World, but you will probably find that is the 1.7 volt basic version. Which is priced at around £250 every where.
This is the higher powered unit, which is why it is a higher price, as I explained above. If you can find the Duration version for less than this I would be very surprised.
