Extremely poor quality, don't bother... same really as all of the rest …Extremely poor quality, don't bother... same really as all of the rest lidl tools...


Not true at all. As a former Lidl regional manager i can tell alot of this stuff is made by Einhell, a german budget tool retailer that is half decent and sells to all the major DIY stores. They are designed squarely at the DIY market, trade tools they are not. But for the price they are ideal for home use and the return rate on them was crazy low. Besides, 3 year warranty??
Read what i said, Former Lidl manager. They are not "my tools". But i have seen hundreds of pallets of these ship and less than 1% ever return to RDC so I am in a position to debunk the utter rubbish you are spouting.

If it doesn't break in 3 years and you use it as intended - it's a bargain at £10 - even a cheap manual stapler from Screwfix costs 50% more.

IF it should break (and as i have said very few do) you get your money back no questions asked.

It's this no lose scenario that allows hard discounters (both Lidl and Aldi, also not "mine") to sell DIY grade power tools cheaply generating multi-million £ revenue streams. No doubt you break out the Paslode gun every time a bit of upholstery comes of a seat at home. Horses for courses..

You've nailed that deal.
Would this be considered a light or heavy duty gun?

Light duty. Ok for crafting and a bit of upholstery and I've used it to staple underlay down.

What's the point from the stupid 3year warranty when the tools are utter junk... Yes they won't break in the 3years.. because they can't be used properly and will only gather dust!
Honestly.. those tools aren't even good for DIY market as they are that bad and I have bought plenty of them to test them out,only to throw them out out of frustration...

Being a lidl manager..what else would you say...

JUNK JUNK JUNK!
I don't care about their ''low' prices, your tools are utter low quality junk!
Why are you guys even wasting earth resources making such low quality crap?

The Lidl manager also failed to mention that the 3 year guarantee does not apply to "moving parts"....y'know.... Dials, switches, motors.... the things that break essentially, and the returns is hit and miss. My local store refused a Lidl return so I had to try taking it to another branch to get my money back. I voted hot.

I took a set of ratchet spanners back because one broke ( wouldn`t ratchet ) - He refunded 25% and let me keep the others

Hot, OP. Thanks for posting, and definitely voted hot.
Thanks for your input, @Tyranicus66. I appreciate your imput with behind the scenes knowledge, even if some others don't!
At this price, and with nails and staples included, and a 3 year guarantee, it is a bargain for general DIY/Hobbyist.

Again.. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT WARRANTY! I buy the tools to use them... not to break them and return them!

Those tools are barely usable because how crude/crap they are..Hence there aren't much returns as they are simply unusable (hence can't be really broken as they are not used),
Those who I have actually broken ( actually MOST of the handtools) I just skip them,as I don't want to waste my time returning something that has cost me 5-10pounds..My time is worth much more than that + all the hassle that comes with ''returns''

Lidl tools are of a Poundland quality, no.... actually of a poundworld quality, the poundland stuff is a notch above in quality!

Wow. Why so angry? Take a chill pill! Also, you're talking nonsense.
I don't think he's talking nonsense.
As an analogy - say you bought a car clutch kit and had it fitted and it broke in 2 days , the retailer says "here's your clutch kit cost refund" .
The effort and aggravation of fitting it is not something any sane person wants or needs.
Well , buying a crappy, cheap tool that will break, if used more than minimally, will need time and effort to get refunded/replaced.
Right. But its nothing like that is it? They're not that crappy and the aggravation if they break isn't remotely comparable to a failed clutch. What a bizarre analogy

I'm a head of D&T at a secondary school. We have a lidl cordless drill that has been used and abused by teenagers for 4 years now, its still going. Its not quite as good as the budget makita we have, but cost about a third of the price. The lidl drill is defo better than the two ryobi drills we have. They are truly terrible.

A few weeks ago Aldi had a scroll saw on offer. It was identical (as in from the same manufacturer) to the clarke ones we have been running in the department for years, with no problems.

People need to get over this outdated opinion thay anything but a premium brand of tool is rubbish. It used to be the case, but its not now.

Of course, if you are a contractor, using a tool heavily, day in, day out you would get a premium brand. Thats not the average HotUKDeals visitor though, is it?

very very light duty, but under a tennar cant go wrong, I had to get in behind a sofa once and then re staple the fabric, this would have been great back then
I bought this and now i wish I hadn't. Now i need the time to return it
Tyranicus667th Mar

i can tell alot of this stuff is made by Einhell,


To be fair, that's not a great endorsement.
