Thanks, for a change with Argos this seems to be a good price for the 400w model. Bought one as my local store actually has stock!

*edit. I just looked at the Amazon reviews and it seems to be a bad choice? (Giving it a go anyway as I can always return it) amazon.co.uk/Bos…TF8

About £6-7 a spool for the heavy duty, I for one will be buying a generic/branded long length and rebuilding the spools as a bosch 24m (about 4 spools worth) is a tenner from 1st look on google. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bosch-1-6mm-Replacement-Cutting-Wire/dp/B00D2S67C2

From the reviews £1.99 wouldn't be a deal for this.

The larger battery version is also half price (£49.99):

Got one of these battery ones a while back (Homebase clearance for £27.43) and very happy with it. Spare blades are a little costly though, but they seem to last quite well.

[The £19.99 one posted was £12.43 back then..http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bosch-art-23-combitrim-electric-grass-trimmer-now-12-43-homebase-free-r-c-2385473]

this is the normal price! you'll find it picked the same in the homebases too

Not normal when looking round the internet but considering Argos and Homebase are owned by the same group it figures they have the same prices now and again.

I do need a new strimmer but every time I get one for £20 it turns out to be crap. Think I'm gonna pay a bit more this time round.

I am fairly sure if you found and posted this for £1.99 it would be considered quite a deal.

In in the need of one at the moment, Good price - but everyone that I have used before the cutting blade/line only seems to last for a few minutes before breaking.

These are great. Had one for a few years. Hot!

the reviews for this are absolutely appalling. I'm going to buy a pair of wellies instead. it won't help with the lawn but I just love wearing them. hope this helps.

pay with a 50 pound note and say keep the change - that'll make it good

Or I just won't buy a **** one, eh.

Anyone considering to buy should perhaps read the amazon reviews.

True, I picked up a the Qualcast cordless a few weeks back when it was half price and that's been an excellent machine for the price - argos.co.uk/sta…htm

I bought a £150 Ryobi petrol one a couple of years ago, with an electronic/battery start - seized within 18 months or so. Then another non-battery start petrol Ryobi one and it's extremely difficult to start - I liked the fact you could exchange the heads on the Ryobi for brushcutter, strimmer or hedgecutter and have all those attachments so it is very annoying! Can anyone recommend a "decent" electric or battery strimmer/brushcutter if this one is so terrible, please?

Not any more they're not! Argos now Sainsbury's; Homebase now Bunnings (Australian).

Homebase is now owned by Austrailian company and Argos recently agreed to be take over by Sainsburys.

I love how amazon have come to match the price of this

Reserved one and voted hot but have since sent hat this is unanimously rated very badly in reviews so I think I will keep my £20. If anyone wants a reservation for watford argos let me know.

i have reserved one also i dont think ill be turning up for it

Better than flymo crap.

Compared with a petrol unit, all these struggle. I have the same Ryobi unit and it has been fantastic for me!

Any good deals for lawn mowers guys?

It isn't that good at all, the extra strong cables a joke as it is a fixed piece slotted into a holder and tbh it didn't seem to strim much earlier. I will give it another week and decide if it goes back as being a turd.

little blades? mines got a spool of wire and a few pre cut lengths but no blades. It is crap though.

I have the Art 26 is is pretty awesome, uses line and heavy duty pre-cut lines..

you can buy the heavy duty from amazon for a couple of pound for 10.

dont do it,,,,,,,,, friend has one and its proper pants

Bought one for collection if it is rubbish it is going back

I had one of these and it lasted about a year. The bit that rotates became loose and would fly off when it heated up after running for about 10-15 mins. I wouldn't recommend it.

​Just bought this. It looks well made and it's a lot heavier than the black and decker I've just binned.

Rip cord version. Not a lot to go wrong with it - recoil start sitting about a little two stroke engine. It's an earlier one with only choke and run as opposed to the rubbish three position versions around now. Also I have always found that while mixing the oil/fuel go a little heavy on the oil. Sure it smells slightly more but from my experience prolongs the life of the engine.
