All Fiskars Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2020
Not the same model.
"Power Gear X will tackle anything, whether it’s thick or thin branches" There's a large Sycamore with a 6" limb overhanging my garden apparantly this will do the job of removing it. I might even be able to sell the chainsaw too !
Lol, similarish situation for me, hadn't done anything to mine for a couple of years for personal reasons along with detesting gardening in the first place and it looked like I was cultivating a dandelion crop, not helped by our soil being ridiculously fertile. Personally, I quite like dandelions when they\re in flower and the way they open and close with the sun etc so that didn't give any encouragement. Felt slightly guilty though as the little old dear across the road is out doing something to her perfect little garden nearly every day, guessing a lot of it might actually have been getting rid of the dandelions that had seeded from mine. Anyway, spent a couple of hours with this thing, actually found it enjoyable for the first time ever, you wouldn't believe the satisfaction that one easy move and you have this gigantic beast on the end in one piece along with a tap root like a healthy carrot and then you start to get clever and do it one handed with the bucket in the other. They're nowhere to be seen now which is, ironically, slightly disappointing given the enjoyment it brought. I'm sure you'll have no problems with yours (y)
Haha! Thank you! I will totally do that now It's been dispatched now. My neighbours across the road own a gardening company. They put their business card through my door last year, with a cheeky comment about my garden and weeds, on the back! I've been fighting a losing battle with the blighters, since I moved in a few years ago XD They must bloomin' hate me. But if I did get someone in to do it, it wouldn't be them! After the cheeky comments. This beast will hopefully help me in my mission.
Little tip, hairdryer the big label on the handle off before you use it or you'll get black hands from the print :)
I have this gathering dust somewhere in the darkest corner of my garage. As noted, it does leave a fair hole in a lawn but easily dressed. Personally speaking, it’s only real use is those big ole dandelion roots.
We have one of these it’s fab
Seen cheaper at uni
Hoe hoe hoe that’s a good one (excited)
I was a Light Hoe back in secondary school, but I was never this cheap
OOS. Shame as I could have done with a Hoe
Bought two. Got hoes in different area codes.
Bit specialised if they're only for violas!
In that case I've grabbed one. Needed a pair and wasn't sure what to get. Thanks OP
Fiskars tools are great!!
Been using this hatchet the last 18 months. It's very light and only really suitable for small stuff. It does go through the larger kiln dried timber I burn alright. But that's more a function of how brittle that wood is rather that the weight of the axe. Takes an edge really well with the Fiskars sharpener and holds it well too. Ideal for hand to hand combat. I hear a voice saying "Previously on The Walking Dead" every time i pick it up.
What orifice was your humour organ extracted via? Or was it just brutally removed with an axe? Either way, you need it back desperately.
Your good authority is unfortunately anything but.
It's confused by its apostrophes.
Thanks ! Just ordered
Heat, cheap way to kill 10 victims, 1 per axe before you have to dump it in the thames, too expensive to get a one good axe
How are the aerodynamics for throwing?
Holding out for meat cleaver first
Posted this 3 weeks ago so it’s probably sold out now
Link not working and cannot find this when searching the site.
Garden spades would be much more fun if they looked like giant spoons.
Hot price, OP! I've got one (at full price) and it is excellent. A bargain at this price! (y)
Is this a way to get hold of throwing stars legally?
A proper pinwheel is far more fun. (cheeky)
Spiker now £11.15
Will this work on my long-haired spaniel?
Guttered I missed this
This comes up as £23.85 when you add to basket.
Had to throw away a pair of these because the handle separated / slipped off the shaft and they became dangerous to use. I have the Spear and Jackson wishbone shears now which are £15.99 at Screwfix (although I paid £5 in the Wilko garden clearance last year). The S&P shears are much better.
Had this happen to me before where you turn up and the muppets look everywhere but no stock. Useless store. No wonder it's going under (lol)
Did anyone else see the picture and think of the burning?
(angel) Been a while since i ordered from Homebase but if it's an item i would like and my local says it's in stock I usually ring them up to confirm after making a reservation
Ordered some thanks, said there were 3 in stock in my local store. Then got rung up by some illiterate muppet from the store itself who could barely speak a word of English, saying something along the lines of "we hasn't got no stock innit mate systemz not workin" (lol) So close but no cigar ;(
I don't sharpen to a fine edge, just enough to remove wear and help stop bounce. I've used LOTS of these types of splitters/mauls/axes over the last 40 years and this is genuinely the best of the lot (imo). Some of those cheap diy types are terribly balanced and vibrate badly. If you use regularly (as I do) you will have problems with joints very quickly.
Thanks - I always wear eye protection when working in the garden.
(y) If your going full whack on the grenade it's worth wearing eye protection. I've had one break on me (not roughneck). Probably a poor cast / alloy.
Ordered that thanks.
Found grenades to be more effective on twisted / knotted wood. You can be very accurate with the grenade placement and I usually start it off with a club hammer.
(confused) (confused) (confused)
Bite too slender a blade for my use - but thanks v much. (highfive)
What the feck is wrong with me? I have loads of knives, have several orange handled knives and wasn't going to buy at £6.43. Now its gone up in price - I am desperate for one!
Some reviewers state it broke with little use. Is it generally a weak item or does the phrase 'they don't make 'em like they used to' applies? Looks useful but some of the reviews are putting me off a purchase.
Exactly the same experience on my side.
They do but they also leave big holes when removing dandelion weeds, so I end up getting on knees to fill the hole with soil. I'm in mixed opinion about the real usefulness having owned one for several years.
I've got one of these. Love it. Takes the backache out of weeding.
Looks like they are price matching Homebase https://www.homebase.co.uk/fiskars-xact-w52-stainless-steel-and-aluminium-garden-weed-puller_p178414
Thanks for getting back so soon, appreciate it!
I’ve been using Wickes topsoil to fill and dress because it’s a bit sandy and I have London clay so it works well there. As for seed, try to match what you have otherwise A1 on Amazon is working well for me. See 10kg Top Quality Lawn Grass Seed A1LAWN AM Pro-26 General Purpose (Covers 285 sq metre) DEFRA https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B004WOSVDI/
Just bought one, novice at gardening, what grass seed would you recommend for covering the hole left and dressing soil? would appreciate some advice
Overpriced for what it is. Cold :|
Have one of these. Great piece of kit.
I saw these and a few other shovels... just couldn't take my pick...
Mine didn't bend after 1 use. Regardless, poor ratings doesn't make something a 'cold' deal.
Wheres the link to the fork? The one of their website is £32 Found the £16 version, reviews all give them 1 star, bends after one use..... cold
TBH , I have Fiskars and this https://www.argos.co.uk/product/6086932 both going strong for over 2 years but the argos ones are used more often.
Hang on, they can't both be the world's best gardening tools?
Read the reviews on Amazon before buying - sounds as though they don't last long because of the main bolt screwing into plastic rather than something stronger. Great price but that fault may be the reason. I won't be buying. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Fiskars-Servo-System-Anti-jam-mechanism-Length/dp/B0002TTRPI PS Links in HUK deals often don't work for me, with Chrome on Windows 10. Copy & paste if necessary.
Back, sack and crack it is then (y)
Very handy - a bit more than scissors and can trim lawn edges, tender shrubs and those awkward to get to bits.
So these are scissors for cutting grass?? And everyone thinks it makes sense to cut your lawn with scissors??
Great! Just ordered one to trim the Mrs big bush that she’s been cultivating :p
Not until you mentioned it, but now that you have... (would certainly make cutting the hedge more exciting...)
Is that the song from 'South Pacific'...?
Good price and good spot. Ordered c&c for tomorrow 😁 (y)
Pity the tiny garden that I have doesn't allow me to have hedges next to the fences :( Nice price nonetheless mate.
Good quality name.hot from me.
It’s an email when you sign up
Is this a code at screwfix? Link?
I have one of these, they’re brilliant. Screwfix sell them and they’ve got £5 off a £25 spend at the mo.
