Guild PSR800G 800w reciprocating saw £24.23 @ Homebase C&C

39
Found 23rd Sep 2016
As above £49.99 in Argos!

Homebase have got some cracking deals on power tools at the moment especially the Guild brand which carries a 2 year warranty and I assume is stock they want to move after their move away from being owned by Argos.

See link in first comment for reference they've got quite a few different types of power tools on offer and the prices are very decent.

... a remarkable price for a reciprocating saw. I don't know this brand, and suspect the quality would not be good enough for a tradesman, but perfectly adequate for the DIY user.

Nice find OP. Heated

good find PF, heat added

comes with 2 year guarantee, lidl and aldi usually do similar once a year for £30 with 3 year guarantee. I wonder if Argos will price match?

Agree, the new Australian owners of Homebase certainly are bringing prices down. I got a Jigsaw for under a tenner.
homebase.co.uk/en/…507. Well made compared to the one that I last got on the Ebuyer deal 6 months ago which eventually burned out.

argos and homebase are owned by the same company and i suspect guild is also a brand that is owned by the company as well so i think thats why they can do what they like with the price of it.

Cheers PF, just about got the hang of these

Have one of these at home but heat added

Thanks for the tip anyway Ill try an Allen key.

I don't know for sure but I guess Bunnings would not want to use the same names for the house stuff own brand goods as Argos /Sainsbury after the split. Guild brand is new so I don't think these are clearance prices, more of a strategy to become more aggressive player in DIY and take on Wickes and Screwfix etc. Just hope they don't change the Store name from Homebase to Bunnings as has been rumoured.

Thanks OP, reserved.

Why have you then posted essentially the same deal?

Gateshead rang me to tell me they didn't have enough stock to fulfil all the orders overnight, and Blyth has also got shut of all it's stock since last night. D'oh.

As an occasional DIYer I ordered a few of these Guild sale items showing in stock at Rayleigh Weir and they called a couple of hours ago to say everything baring the reciprocal saw was out of stock despite showing otherwise on the website - apparently there's a bit of a rush on this morning! Think these are really good offers and can't see them hanging around at these prices so get them while you can.

FYI. Guild is Home Retail's own brand of power tools. Home Retail is the parent company of Homebase and Argos.

I've tried again for another store, just waiting to see if they call up with the same story as it's quite a way away.

this ok for hedges?

Store in Fareham many items In stock but some not available . But they have just received 40 pallets from the warehouse and don't have the staff to finish sorting first thing on a Saturday morning. So that may be the case with other stores.

Alnwick also out of stock of this.

Bought a 'guild' jigsaw other week for £9!! Ans was very impressed, expected its to be cheap quality but feels really solid, 2 year warranty is a big bonus too

Cheers , got one today..

I ended up getting them in the Southend store. Really pleased with my purchases and ideal for what I need them for. Good luck with yours.

Cheers, wasn't in stock either, the guy seemed a bit annoyed when I said I wouldn't be picking up the other reserved bits either but oh well, apologised for wasting his time.
