£100 off Bahco Socket set - £79.99 with free delivery @ Clas Ohlson

Found 4th Aug 2012
Went on looking for a socket set for myself and spotted this, bit more than I needed but it seems a great price if you can make use of it all.

Had a quick comparison online and cheapest on amazon was £121 then eBay at £105. Free delivery when you spend £40 too so this more than covers it!

Quality kit but an unusual combination - would have expected 1/2" & 3/8" drive sockets. Good selection otherwise

I bought this to replace the head gasket on my daughters car, it's good quality and seems to have every tool you need, thoroughly recommend it.

great brand and very good quality . have used bahco for year .

Bought this set on Amazon at Christmas for about £100,this is an absolute steal.Good find op.oO

I'd have thought that another head gasket would have worked better than this, did the socket set fit between the head and the block ok? X)

Apart from the most important, a torque wrench!

Great find. Shame my tool box is full of Halfords Pro stuff.

Bought new for £100 on ebay about 2 years ago, quality tools (prior to owning just had a big cheap tool set from B&Q). Has done every job around the house (lots of furniture builds) and small and medium jobs on the car with ease.

Tools are holding up quality and wear wise.

Would make an excellent present for someone who needs tools

How does this compare to the top end halfords pro range?

Especially when they are the usual half price offers around £100

What is Dynamic Drive profile? Is is something similar to Wall Drive sockets? If so, what is the difference?

Brilliant price! Bahco stuff is spot on.

Bahco are probably one of the best tool manufacturers on the market, they are equivilant to snap on. This is a hot hot deal.

Bahco is owned by Snap-on.

live and learn, i thought they were made in sweden and an independant manufacturer. Either way, good tools.

Great piece of kit, but I would probably go for the Halfords Pro / Advanced toolkit which is usually a similar price on offer regularly. Only reason is the inclusion of 3/8" sockets and more durable torx bits (they are on sockets instead of a scerwdriver bit)

Been using Bahco tools and still have them from being an apprentice nearly 40 years ago. Been to our local store and bought a set just because of the quality and excellent price of the set. Bahco tools are in my opinion easily comparable with Britool and Snap-on and I would have no hesitation in recommending them.

just as a heads up, students get an extra 10% off too!

Decent price but halfords pro still ahead by a nose, the lifetime guarantee is worth it weight in gold

Have to agree, Bahco warranty is non existent - pump pliers that had failed after 18 months and they didn't want to know. Still use their wide jaw adjustables though!

Excellent deal, I wish I needed more tools :-(
Good company to buy from they offer a 2yr guarantee on this set too!

And the most obvious being the replacement gasket!
Think this is actually a better set and good reviews...

Bahco are owned by SNA Europe, a Swedish company who are nothing to do with Snap On

Heat added for good deal

Hawt..

Good Plain...(in a good way) solid Kit....

Good price...

I also like the 1/4" -1/2" combo is great for a 'smaller' , concise set., that still covers most of the bases..

OOS

The halfords warranty is pretty much worthless, it only covers the sockets not the ratchets (rightly so)

In more than 20 years i've never managed to break a socket and believe me i've tried. Even the worst sockets i've ever bought have never actually broken they just tend to be made to rubbish tolerances...
