second that. Not required if you have an RCD on your fuseboard.

May not be required but useful if you have to get a ladder out to access the fuseboard

Depends how your house is wired. Besides, if you chop your hedge trimmer cable I think resetting the trip is the least of your problems!

This has been £4.00 for quite a while. Been putting off buying one for about 2 months. I would like to be double protected for the sake of £4.00.

If any one of the circuits protected by the RCD develops a fault condition such that the RCD operates then ALL the circuits will be isolated. This is normally both (all) the all of the ring mains plus things like garage. Hedge Trimmers and such like should be Class 2 devices (double insulated) meaning that if you chop the cable there should not be any supply to exposed parts (of the equipment).

Been looking for a new one so thanks for the heads up!
