Seen this in Screwfix's end of catelog clearout email this morning. Have been looking for a foldable bench for some time. Not sure how this compares to the Keter one which Toolstation stock.

If it does the work for me then I'd say that's money well spent. Voted hot. Lol
There are loads of different branded versions of this, they are all the same apart from the different colours. Mine has had a load of abuse, including being used as a platform for hedge trimming, and it has stood up to the task well. The main complaint I have about it is that it's fairly poor for getting things clamped to around the edges.
I've only had this for a few months but it's been great so far.
I would go for the Keter version which has a max load capacity of 453kg opposed to this one which only has 180kg.

Thanks for that. I was certain there must be more to it other than the colour diff.

They are the same aren't they - Keter makes this.

There are 2 different versions with different load capacity. The higher load capacity version was around £89.99 from what I remember. But available for £54.99 at Toolstation at the moment. Also £29 at B&Q if you can find stock.
Toolstation has a Keter for £54.99 as mentioned above by @Tokynawa but it states it has a max weight of453kg on the product page: toolstation.com/ket…910

Some reviewers mention uneven legs and someone said it moves when sawing heavier items. Otherwise has a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews.

Mine is Keter and looks identical. Great bit of kit. I paid £40 from B&Q a few years ago. Heat

Hmmm, I'm not that convinced. They all look the same. Mine is a keter, and I can't see any difference.

These issues must be due to the tool setting it up.

You can't go wrong with these, drop the bottom shelf and the legs drop automatically and can't be uneven. Can't.

Pull the middle strut up and it's rock solid, no movement or twist at all. None.

Could be they didn't read the instructions; or perhaps there was a faulty batch as the one star reviews are between 7 -11 months ago on Toolstation about the legs. One even measured the legs and got 1cm difference....maybe they can't measure accurately either! Who knows.


Just seen I have a £25 off £150 spend with Toolstation via a voucher (from an email). Wondering whether to get this and a Makita HS7601J/2 Circular saw to replace some kitchen shelving and maybe put some loft flooring down. Have a cordless Makita drill for the drilling part but probably some floor boards will need to be cut smaller. As well as having the workstation and saw for other DIY tasks. I missed out on the brushless Makita circular saw at Homebase stores a few days ago. Unsure if a circular saw is a bit overkill for DIY tasks or not? Must be less effort and quicker than manualy sawing stuff by hand?
This version also omits the adjustable feet that are on the more expensive alternatives. I own the MacAllister shown here (lack of height adjustment has not been an issue). It has seen 3 years of light use with occasional heavy use - still looks & feels new. Highly recommended.
had one of these - pretty good but not quite as strong as stated....a leg sheared off mine when sawing. Screwfix put me on to Keter who refunded me the cost as they don't supply any spares.

Strange that it looks identical to our keters.
If i didn't have a work mate would love this.
