Not a review of the product but qualcast is used under licence by Argos and Homebase and not the old qualcast many know just another own brand name. Couple that with the recent split of the two companies you might not get replacement parts.

I never had a single problem after 2 years use. My very large garden (land) is very flat even if goes up on one side, also no obstacles and possibly that is what makes the difference. When I store it I always ask for help instead of pulling through some steps leading in to the shed, when alone I always lift it up from both side and nicely. All I can recommend is to do your own modification to the air filter which does not last long and in reality is never been that good as the engine needs more air to work properly, can hear and feel the power difference after the modification.Just do some clean holes in to the existing filter and cover with your own made foam filter instead. The only thing I lose from time to time are the wheel cover but they clip back very easily

I have one. My front wheels fell off too! And strangely enough wheel are excluded from the 2 year guarantee.
(but were easy to order from the Qualcast Service Desk over the phone - and came in 3 days)
However - considering I only paid £125 for the machine in their sale 2 years ago I think its a fine machine. B&S engine easy to start (first pull every time) and makes a good job of cutting my largish lawn. One lever height adjuster works well and I have found I leave it on the one up from the lowest setting, otherwise it "scalps" the lawn.
and BTW - they seem to have improved the design of the wheels slightly so they may not fall off so much.

I bought one of these a year ago for 50 quid and did the whole garden (medium sized) with it ready for seeding grass. The safety cut-out button stopped working fairly early, so I can't rely on it stopping when I let go of the hand switch and sometimes need to press the button to get get it to release. But other than that it's quite beastly.

This year the front wheel broke off and, guess what, wheels are not covered by the 2 year guarantee. However the Helpline did sell me 2 new wheels for £20 (inc p&p). Apart from that it's an excellent machine.

​Like all warranties now instead of providing an all inclusive 1 year warranty they all do these 10 year not worth the paper they are printed on warranties. They end up being cheaper for the manufactures and worse for the consumer. I think mine read movable parts are not covered in the warranty so basically nothing is covered ><.

Good price, just tinkering on the wattage, 250, 350 or 600W
I think most people will be extremely disappointed with these, I have a much higher wattage one and that is pathetic. I think most people will use (or attempt to use) it once then throw it away. It is cheap for a reason.
Bargain!

Can't find any stock anywhere.
May be basic but does the job well - and cheaper than some manual mowers I've seen!
Looks remarkably similar to the bosch arm 360 I got at wickes for 49.99 the other week. The cynic in me says they're all made in the same factory and a different facia is slapped on them.

The bosch I bought is fine by the way, the trigger is the same as this one and I found it a little.uncomfortable to use and the grass box gets filled up quite quickly.

Is this a good price?

Where can you get additional batteries for these?
As long as this includes the battery this is a very good deal.

Battery charger is slow but should be good enough for a medium sized garden. Buy two and you have spare set for less than the price of an additional battery.
I think I paid this much for mine. I'm very pleased with it.

If you call Bosch Customer services, you get a recorded message telling you that if you bought a Qualcast item from Homebase or Argos, your warranty has nothing to do with Bosch and says to hang up the phone lol. Also the Qualcast manual even has the manufacturer listed in it as Homebase etc. This product has nothing to do with Bosch.

True but all Qualcast items along with some spear & jackson items sold by Argos/ homebase are owned by Argos (sainsburys group) warranty or after care for these products are not provided by Bosch/qualcast as they are not manufactured by them and has nothing to do with them .

Exactly. The branding should be ignored and treated like some kind of sham. I would view it as being an "Argos Value" spade & disregard the name. And if that's all you need, well it is a low price, so why not buy ?

Edited by: "jaizan" 17th Jul 2016
Probably not great for heavy digging.

@Ridgehead...........use a fork to loosen the soil around the try roots; try to avoid using a spade especially for levering the root as you'll bend or break the spade.
Cheers OP, broke my spade yesterday digging up a tree root.
