Nice one and thanks for the heads up scnickr

Cold, Bosch mower lasted only 3 summers on a very small lawn, their customer service was terrible. so Iv'e added Bosch (surprisingly) to my list of manufacturers to avoid.

If mower was 3 years old I’m not surprised customer service weren’t interested. Retailer would have been the way to go per consumer regulations

Most retailers wouldn't be interested after far less a time (e.g 6 months) than that and would refer you back to the manufacturer. I know your contract is with the retailer, but this would have likely also been outside of warranty and given that it had worked it is deemed fit for purpose, and also would be extremely hard to prove it had not lasted for a reasonable time.

What's good about this dryer compared to others? On the look out for a condenser tumble dryer. Bit of a mine field!

The key thing with tumble dryers is their energy efficiency. Most cheap dryers are C rated. This is B rated and so cheaper to run. Given that some dryers cost around £1 per load, it's worthwhile doing research on how many loads you will do in a year against cost per load. This will generally guide you to a suitable choice. For heavy users, it can sometimes work out better to spend £800 on an A rated machine.

Looked this one up and appears to have a cost per load of 29.28p. The best dryer on the market is 21.88p and so it's pretty good. Check out sust-it.net

I might be wrong but condenser dryers seem to be B rated and heat pump which is the newer technology are better with A+ ratings. However I needed a dryer suitable for use in a garage which heat pumps aren’t. Hence going for this condenser.

Even some expensive condenser dryers are C rated. In fact, the majority of condenser dryers are rated C. You are correct about heat pump though, although they do tend to be very pricey.

Thanks. I understand the efficiency makes a difference. Don't think we'll use it enough to warrant a high cost high efficiency model. Just thought this model might have settings, electronics etc. that were above this price range. Thanks for the website, that looks useful.
