Got the smaller one about a year ago from Argos with the strimmer for £150. Works really well and gives the grass a nice stripe.
All Gardening Discounts, Offers and Sale - July 2020
I bought this deal last time and sold batteries/charger for £72 on eBay just last week.
Already got 5 batteries plus charger, so will be selling these batteries and charger on fleabay for £50 minimum, happy days.
As a complete kit with batteries and charger it's a good deal. If you already have WORX batteries and charger you may get a lower price on the trimmer alone but it won't be such good value and extra batteries are always useful.
Same price on Amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/WORX-WG261E-1-Cordless-Trimmer-Batteries/dp/B07N7QPSC7
Is this a good deal? Or can you suggest another one? I am after a cordless hedge trimmer. Thanks
Reviews are top for this. Might have to buy for the new gaff! :)
I've never really heard of this brand.are they new and are they reliable?
I would rather get a lidl or aldi one with 3 years guarantee...
Got it last month at the same price and I love it
This one is corded not battery operated
Got this, it's great. When the battery starts to get about half, the machine can end up turning off if the grass is too long/wet but to get around that just get another battery and swap halfway if needed. It folds up nice and small as well.
Got a 5ah two pack off Amazon last year that worked out about £20 each, seem alright, I default to the ryobi battery but useful to have for longer jobs to switch to.
Just picked one up, comes with 4amp battery and charger, this model can hold 2 batteries. Bargain price if your looking for one.
Has anyone tried the unbranded ryobi batteries? Are they any good?
Nice one buddy
Brand new On Amazon but checked just now and currently unavailable. They have an eBay shop though. Had mine just a year now and been faultless so far. Edit: Found it in their ebay shop https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/20V-18V-Li-Ion-Battery-for-WORX-WA3551-1-Cordless-Drills-Electrical-Appliances/402102704155?hash=item5d9f30581b:g:tmoAAOSwLatejF2K Different brand which I havent used so no recommendation but this one also has the capacity indicators https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/5000mAh-20V-Li-Ion-Battery-for-Worx-WA3551-1-WX372-WX678-WX678-9-WX390-WX523/363019733326?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131003132420%26meid%3Dba10421ca4a3487dae8b8b496beb33bd%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpf%26sd%3D402102704155%26itm%3D363019733326%26pmt%3D1%26noa%3D0%26pg%3D2047675%26algv%3DSimplAMLv5PairwiseWebWithBBEV1Filter&_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851
Where did you find the exmate batteries? Second hand or brand new?
1.5ah batteries (lol) No wonder they give you 2 Ordered anyway
i know it is , i didn't say otherwise
I saw those too but it doesn’t come in retail packaging. Is it a genuine Black and Decker roll?
were they Black and Decker or some other make, maybe B&F ha ha ha
I bought it at 9.29 a few days ago, contacted amazon and said they don't offer difference guess its going back. good deal
Not gonna say it’s a bad deal, but I just bought three for £7.50. Heat added though, thanks.
I've had mine for about 3 years now. It's great.
Last time Lidl had these advertised in NI they didn’t actually get them in. Instead they had the 2400w version, which I did buy instead. Good power of it, easily cleaned paths and patio. Also has a Lavor connector if you’re looking to add a snow foam lance.
NI often get short changed on deals. Listen to some adverts, and many will say "Not available in Northern Ireland". Perhaps there is some commercial law, but it is stupid, in the same vein that baby powdered milk etc is never included in sales. A little light shed https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-20985528
T There's actually a post on this particular pressure washer with feedback from owners. Might want to look it up.
Thanks for that (y)
It’s £74.98, they did have a £10 voucher floating round to drop it£10 https://www.toolstation.com/karcher-k2-compact-pressure-washer/p66027 I went for the option with patio cleaner for slightly more
Toolstation has it for £65
I bought it last week from ao.com, their price was £80, but they price matched Amazon's price £71.99 and theirs was 2 years warranty (it was the compact one, I'm not sure if this is the same, but I was happy with it)
No stock anywhere
Has anyone seen any decent deals on corded mowers,I'm trying to spend not spend too much,but want something made well enough
Only thing with the worx is that it's 20v vs 40v, so motor potentially being worked harder and likely to fail sooner, but again it all ifs and buts, but generally you'd ideally go for 40v brushless but I think for the budget options they're both bargains when you look how much bosch etc are (although great mowers if you can afford them)
Looked at Yard Force before plumping for the Worx, reason being it's dual 2.0AH batteries so more powerful plus being a big name there's plenty of compatible batteries out there (sold the 2x 2.0AH Worx batteries on Shpock for 28 quid each then bought 2x Exmate 5.0AH for 32.99 each and they've been good as gold for over a year plus of course waayy longer running time). Not forgetting they also chuck in a more than decent strimmer in the package. Only downside I've found is I became obsessed with the Power Share ideaa and now have 6 Worx products, including drills, recip saw and hedge trimmer! (shock)
Better mowers out there for the money, for budget I'd say yard force, can get the 40v 2.5ah 37cm cut for this price which has rear roller for stripes, bigger bucket and gives a good cut Worx one above is also decent
Surely this is a better deal at the same price ( I bought it last year and it's been flawless TBH). Great thing about the mower is the minimum cutting height is 20mm, which is very unusual for a budget battery mower. Also offering me 5 interest free monthly payments of 35 quid! https://www.amazon.co.uk/WORX-WG927E-Mower-Cordless-Trimmer/dp/B07JRDL1DN/ref=sr_1_2_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=worx+mower&qid=1593543021&sr=8-2-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExRTlUMzZaNjFLQlVGJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMzgxMjA0MlpONE9ENUg2VVZCSCZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNTc2NzMwMzNBWERXTDVJTjFRRiZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU=
Thanks will do
Ordered! & free delivery tomorrow already had the shipped confirmation! Hubby is going to feel less stressed after watering the plants & garden everyday, hopefully! Ive never heard so much swearing from a man who cant use his hose without it getting all bent!
Grabbed one. :)
Ordered one, thanks for the update. Stock available. Free delivery as well if anyone wants one (y)
Ordered yesterday, free delivery today!
hi doesthis come with a strimmer spool and any know prices of new spooks thanks
I dunno what kind of overgrown areas you are clearing but I just did my garden just now. Took about 35 mins and still charge left :/
Check again. Plenty of stock local and online for me
Out of stock :(
You can, it's just very slow! I use my charger (BCL14183H) that came with a 1.3ah battery to charge a 5.0ah battery, just put it on when you go to sleep (gonna take like 8hrs).
You're more than welcome ma'am. All I was doing was posting my PERSONAL opinion of what I found. I'm quite sure that other readers MAY well give a different opinion. (y)
Thank you, Jessie72, for posting this link which I personally believe would be more useful for total beginners to gardening. More experience growers would already know much, if not everything, that is written in the 'book'. You get (y) (y) (y) from me for thinking of others.
I'm afraid, gavinsavage, that if you've done any type of gardening at all, you MIGHT be a little disappointed with this book. I downloaded this very same book in 2018 and I can honestly say that the only thing I learned from it was how the author used various 'statements' to justify why you should 'go' organic. Having said that, for someone that's brand new to gardening, you WILL learn some useful things, such as the differences between different containers and why to choose individual ones; the different vegetables that are easy to grow; why you should 'thin out' plants to ensure you get better growth; dealing with pests, etc. As the book is free, there's no harm in you downloading it and having a read. You MIGHT be able to come back at me then and tell me how wrong I am. ;)
Hope this is helpful for ideas!
Similar but smaller.. like these.
If it's anything like the Sheen X300 then a somewhat different beast altogether.
This particular model or weed burners in general?
These are complete crap
Not theory... I have an old parrafin version and it works a treat.
Nice and cheap. Thanks @Josh_Hudson
Don't bother. Bought one and it's so thin it's buckling everywhere and a nuisance.
You got me curious on that, never thought about it before, suspect it is down to friction / resistance of the pipe. In either event, here's a useful table (based on 40 PSI at source)...
Absolutely rubbish. Kinking a lot.
"Flexible and shape-retaining" - are these likely to keep their shape well?
Title amended, but not everyone actually needs to buy a battery and charger separately. That's a myth. Some will already have them and others might get an adaptor to use an alternative battery brand like I did. Adaptors are available for Makita, Dewalt, Bosch and Milwaukee. That's pretty much the popular brands covered.
This deal does not include the battery and charger....you still need to buy those separately
Got it for £79 with the code GIFT05 thanks
Weight is always a concern with tools like this but only up to a point. If it gets the job done quickly and to a decent quality then I'm willing to put up with the free workout it provides.
I agree with the comments here; this is a great bit of kit, but the weight is an issue if you’re using it for a long time or holding it at any kind of angle rather than upright! :)
I have this (or one very like it) and a Qualcast strimmer and my batteries are NOT interchangeable, nor have I been able to buy new spare batteries (2nd hand one I got on eBay was faulty). Bought both a couple of years ago, so maybe things have changed. Mine was poor quality: pins in the battery socket were wired incorrectly from the shop (fixed it myself) and the head-pivot sometimes doesn't lock properly. But I put up with it because of its lightness compared to others, which makes it actually useable for long periods. No heat but not cold either.
I have this and the handheld one, have to say for the price they are remarkably good. Battery life is as good as other items I have from Bosch, all in all a great buy especially at this price
Can someone tell me the main difference between this and the ryobi one which is £160 approx with battery?
I can interchange them with ones from a Qualcast strimmer but I've never found generics for these. I suspect that when the batteries are finally exhausted the tools will be junk though they are holding up well at the moment (several summers old). There really should be environmental legislation to require manufacturers to use standard battery sizes/fits - they certainly aren't going to do it voluntarily, though if they don't sell spare batteries like Homebase don't it really wouldn't matter to them.
13 in stock now if you need still.
£24.99 and it's out of stock.
