Interested in why the cold votes?
All Qualcast Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
Thanks dude showed the till assistant your receipt and he put it through!
No worries mate whatever, it doesn’t matter except you got a good deal, that’s why we are here (y) Glad you got sorted.
I was only joking it was homebase! I think the mistake they made was the website takes the 15% promotion off the price automatically then when you reserve then when I collected they took another 15% off discounted price.
Except this deal is for Homebase NOT B&Q XD
No stock anywhere near me.
£15 at HOMEBASE
out of stock
might have 1 in 1 shop somewhere - cold shame argos are doing a lot of this lately
Release the wild geese
I got my dad this when it was £9.99 n he’s happy with it so for fiver deffo can’t go wrong! :D
I know what we're having for Christmas... A GOOSE! Nice if u can find one though x
Not voting cold but this isn’t a qualcast made product. It’s an Argos own brand badged as qualcast under license.
Can't complain!!! have you used this site before? if it was 5p somebody would find fault in fact they find fault with free stuff. P.s. good price I got one earlier this year and it does the job as well as one I had that cost a lot more. Have a bit O heat
Checked Leicester in stock great price
"Only one voucher can be used per purchase and it cannot be used in conjunction with any other promotional offer, or with the Homebase Team Member Discount Card"
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.
look for the 48inches. I got the last one from Wandsworth and they are @£75 same as the 46" and the 41" Plenty 46" @ Wandsworth
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.
Nice find, I could do with a new one, HOT
Flip!! The blades arnt much less than this, a whole new machine that includes blades, nice one..
I popped in to the local Homebase on the way home from work last night and even though what I wanted wasn't showing as being in stock when I checked on line they still a some of it in store. Manged to get this and a hedge trimmer so worth popping in if its not to much out your way.
rang the main number and requested them to transfer my call to our local branch where it was in stock and reserved it and later collected.
What store were these in as nothing showing on line :-(
I have one - excellent product but don't expect any backup (eg extra batteries).
As no stock in Argos but it's there in homebase
Why not just buy from Argos
Bunnings own the licence, hence Argos discontinuing.
Just been in the Bradford store and they refused to price match as they don't have any left near me in in Argos and that it's an Argos clearance product. Not the same company by the way
Too heavy. Brought one, never used it. Took it to the tip a couple of weeks ago.
Perfect needed one before the zombie breakout
I'm not much of a gardener seems a good apocalypse investment tho heat added
That depends on whether she is: - OR
Bought mine, now just awaiting a dry enough day to use it.
Interesting. And for £10 more there's a corded rotary mower instead of hover. Thanks op!
Add something small making it over £50 and get £5 voucher
Thanks OP. Reserved one..
Gotta love carbon steel. Much better than non carbon steel, or iron as most people call it.
Thanks, bought one.
Ah, lucky this was labelled as a 'digging' spade otherwise noone would know if it's okay for digging. "Call a spade a spade" lol
Reserved both for collection. Cheers op and Picard123
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.
Argos have a habit of putting items up on sale knowing there is no stock, i have been caught out a couple of times
Thanks OP managed to grab one, almost bought at 109 couple of weeks back!
Still 4 left in the country.
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 ><.
None in stock.
Had mine for a couple of years and still going strong. No complaints at all from me, would never go back to electric
While the main Argos site is down I found this in case anyone is interested http://cdn.argosoutlet.co.uk/shop/argos/server/questions.php?sku=4606046
Does anyone own one and know what these are like. Cheers. Just read a few reviews and they get a lot of 5 stars so thumbs up. (y)
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.
Cheers OP. Wife's been after one of these for a few months. This has piped her right down.
I got the Strimer /mower set from Argos outlet for £35
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.
Qualcast is now a licensed brand of home retail... Argos or shall I say now sainsburys
stunningly similar to b&q own brand # which is 40 quid all year long
Nice bit of kit .. got mine today thank you
Only £5 off Is this a good price? Need a new trimmer
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.
The battery should last a full cut on most lawn.
What I wonder is... how long the batteries last. and how much replacements are.
I bought a Brill RazorCut Premium 38. The grass is looking much better than it did when it was cut with a hover mower, and it takes less time.
Getting rid of summer stock to make way for Christmas decorations ?
What's the shortest cut setting like? Is it short enough?
I got one today and it's quite light, that's important because you will need to redo it several times as the power very poor compared to a wired. I'll be returning mine.
No - it's a normal 2 sided blade.
is the blade one sided? it looks one sided on the pictures?
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 . Watranty is with Atgos only no matter what they tell you.
