Cheers O.P. Just ordered for C&C heat added
Just ordered one for C&C too - thanks

Yup. Ordered one for collection. Cheers
Bad reviews from B&Q. looks identical. They talk about having to untangle it every 10 seconds. That puts a new light on it. 10 reviews 5 good 5 damning.

You can rewind the spools yourself if you cut off the outer plastic ring. You can use any cheap spool wire of the right diameter.

I found the bump-to-release line feature of my older B&Q one is pretty poor, it's much quicker to flip it over and press it in manually.
Dam too late, none near me (St Albans, Welwyn Garden City or Harlow).
none in stock in or around Poole! :-(
Can anyone recommend a strimmer that works well and doesn't need constant intervention to get more spool or untangle the feckin mains lead?

You want a cordless strimmer but they are quite a bit more expensive than this one. Lidl do one a few times a year for about £40 and the sheds have them for about £50. You might be able to pick up a used one on the bay for about £20.

I've got one of these and the bump feed head shattered into a thousand pieces second time i used it.
Good luck finding one
non in stock in and around Leeds

No click and collect or delivery to my location
OOS everywhere.
Had a call from my local store this morning telling me that their warehouse doesn't have any trimmers in stock and that I should ring head office to get my refund.. What kind of **** is that?! Why is it that I have to waste my time and money (if I didn't have all inclusive tariff) to call someone to get a refund because of their screw-up!
went in to collect mine today, said order had been cancelled. however they called the warehouse and they said they had 400 in stock now so ordered another and collecting tomorrow. unsure why they cancelled orders and didn't just use the stock they have now
