Well done, but I don't see how they got the £33.99.
15% off?
Or, was it 10% of the difference?

Ah, got it now.

I just went to Homebase, showed them the item on the Argos app, incidentally they weren’t bothered that the item in Argos wasn’t in stock & the terms and conditions don’t mention it needing to be in stock with the other retailer. I’ve used this pricematch with Homebase several times.
Check the reviews on Amazon before buying. 3 reviews - 1 star.
This is an occasional item, to be used in Autumn & spring. Comparable products from Screwfix, B&Q are at least 3x this price. With a 2 year Guarantee, who can complain.
Paying this price, you could break even selling it!!
Make sure the moss is dead before you use this or you'll just spread the spores and make the moss worse. Sulphate of iron is the cheapest way but wear gloves or it'll make your hands black.
My experience with anything Qualcast is that it works fine the first time you use it, but dies on the second use.
Fair comment Pete if that’s your experience. Qualcast is a subsidiary brand of BOSCH. Personally I rate the brand, although I’ve probably just jinxed myself now

Good tip Arold, I find Westland lawn sand does the trick.

The Qualcast name has been licensed to Argos/Homebase to use on their own products. Bosch still make Qualcast goods but the vast majority sold by Argos are their own products. That said I’ve had no reliability problems with Qualcast items from Argos.

Qualcast is now an own brand of Argos and homebase licences from Bosch but nothing to do with them though all made by another compa
Just called drakehouse, sheffield and they said it has to be in stock at argos. I cannot find a single one anywhere at argos.

Efficient but back breaking. Ive got the Black & Decker one and it does the job really well but the basket is small and fills quickly. Its amazing how much comes out! Downside is that ive got a clover issue now, and was wondering if the rake has broken up the roots allowing them to grow more.

It is inevitable that by scarifying a Lawn, it will become susceptible to additional perennial weeds. I highly recommend this:

Used one a year, it’s a soluble treatment that will eradicate clover etc

I got this last night. No problem with price matching from Argos page on my phone and got 10% off the final price. I didn't realise it should have been 10% of the difference, but I don't mind about that too much. Thanks!

Really pleased you benefited from this post 🏼
Cheers OP managed to finally get one. Also the price match and the 10% difference discount so £33.99 all in, the store manager had no issues authorising it either. Well happy

Really pleased it worked for you too. There is an identical post on HUKD which is basically this post, although the success stories on that post aren’t as positive as on this one.
