All Rake Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
Still available and plenty of stock locally to me, picked one up last night and seems good quality so excellent value, only the £20 ones were out on the shelf!
Wickes are normally, err... raking it in with the amount they charge on most DIY items. Funny then that this rake is actually a decent price! (lol)
Got this, does the job. Good for scratching your back too.
Is it National? Anyone know?
Ive hoovered mine (lol) (lol) I scarrified my lawn then the heatwave came, fookd mine now.
Still need to rake up the dead grass if you want grass next year pal
Cheers managed to pick one up in Oxford.
I've got a similar one of these from Aldi. Really good if you have a lot of moss in your lawn, will fill your bin with all the junk it pulls up though! The collection attachment is a complete waste of time as it fills in about 30 seconds.
No stores seem to have them. you may as well get the one from Homebase for £69 as these seem to be in most stores.
this is what I needed! Wish I saw this when it was £40! I will just have to continue manually raking it in! booo lol
No longer available at £40 :( Great find though!!
Your not wrong, I was totally amazed at how much crap it pulled out of my lawn, it took two trips to the tip to get rid of it all. Followed up with a good grass feed and 3 weeks later the lawn looked fantastic.
Out of stock from Tesco Direct, at £40. Still available at other sellers for almost double.
The link goes to one sold by Power tools direct. Only items sold by Tesco Direct are being reduced, not other sellers. That aside, are we now going to see a post for every item that Tesco are doing? We have already had a few this morning. I just followed the first link to see what else they had. Some good deals to be fair.
Got the manual one from Lidl for £14.99. Bl**dy hard work that.
Used this today for the first time. Wow, totally amazed at how much rubbish came out the grass. I didn’t even think it looked that bad, lawn is already looking so much healthier. Well worth the money and so easy to use. It’s kinda addictive, I wanna do my neighbours! (lol) Will add grass seed and soil on top over the coming days, but excited to see where I’ll be in a few weeks/months.
They also use different attachments for raking and scarifying (embarrassed) scarifying uses metal blades whilst raking is like metal wires
In that case, your original post is incorrect. This unit has 3 different height settings that will rake through the grass, down to soil level, or even into the soil.... So on your definition, this is a rake and a scarifier (y) .
I'm not a massive expert but from what I can see raking is basically raking the surface of the grass of loose debris, whilst scarifying goes deeper and digs out the dead grass layer and/or moss
I used to have a job collecting leaves.........I was raking it in.
Heat for OP’s username (y)
Also got the spade at £5.99. Thanks
Reviews seem good but is this a good price? Cheapest currently but has been lower. Any alternatives?
Great set of games for the price. Uncharted 4 blows them out of the water following the lessons learned with TLOU, but still a fun trilogy that hasn't aged too terribly.
Ordered, cheers. Also threw in no mans sky for an extra £6.71
Bloody elfs (shock)
Getting sillier now.
Recipe modified. Not good as before

Fake news! Perhaps too much falling down liquid to 'Kraken' a joke this bad?
Tesco and Asda both £20 so not sure why this is a deal
Love this, best spiced rum going I think. Keep your Pussers and I'm an ex-matlow (though post black friday generation).
This is only good to clear the drains. Buy a bottle of Pussers blue label instead. Much better rum and only £22.25 on amazon atm
might as well go to a local supermarket at this price. I regularly see this at £20
Well done some good advice. No commuter needs a full suss, its just going to add weight and result in less money being spent on the basics. Plenty end of season deals around. I am going to mention the second hand market, despite havin previously being stalked on HotUK deals for doing so! Plenty of good deals on gumtree.
Be careful with this supplier. They clearly give false information. This bike claims to be 7 speed but the image shows what looks like a single speed bike with no cable going to the rear for hub or derailleur gears and no derailleur shown either. https://www.lightinthebox.com/folding-bike-unisex-ordinary-v-brake-folding-ordinary-7-speed-20-inch-steel-red-yellow-blue-white_p5116851.html?prm=188.8.131.52 They are also claiming normal price at close to £2000 but the bike appears something worth more like £90-110 slightly below their asking price.
I'm no bike snob or bike brand snob but this really doesn't look very good especially for £200+ which if carefully chosen will get you a pretty decent bike new. Many years ago I bought a new £65 bike and rode it at 26 stone despite the warnings from many people. It was brilliant, loved the bike but in contrast to this bike it was incredibly simple, no suspension or gimmicks at all just a strong rigid steel mountain bike. Of course the weight it was carrying meant a few issues, had to replace the bearings in the front wheel and after hitting a pothole had to true the rear wheel that happened within the first 3 months. The basic Shimano tourney rear derailleur was poor at shifting after going through rain and about maybe after 6 months of ownership changed it for a Deore. As I got lighter the problems pretty much disappeared. If you are buying a cheap bike new keep it simple would be my advice. Cheap suspension is next to useless and short life. Cheap suspension can pretty much guarantee a landfill destiny in a few years at best. It is true though that many people buy mountain bike style bikes (Apollo, Argos, Toy's R Us etc) with no intention of taking them off road because they like the style and such bikes could never successfully be taken off road anyway due to weak freewheels, threaded headsets and weak suspension. I don't think its unfair to warn people that such bikes aren't suitable for such use. Many would assume a bike described as a mountain bike could be taken off road.
A bike with a lot of overweight cheap components,you'll spend more time repairing and pushing than riding,spending a little more on something like a Raleigh Evo-2 [Halfords]with better quality gears and brakesand a lighter alloy frame will be less fatiguing to ride,more reliable,and last a lot longer.
Looks quite a good bike for commuting short distances - and how many people who own Mountain Bikes actually ride them on mountains? (or off-road at all for that matter) It seems "hardcore cyclists" are rapidly becoming this generation's wine snobs ;)
Really pleased it worked for you too. There is an identical post on HUKD which is basically this post, although the success stories on that post aren’t as positive as on this one.
Cheers OP managed to finally get one. Also the price match and the 10% difference discount so £33.99 all in, the store manager had no issues authorising it either. Well happy :D
Really pleased you benefited from this post (y) 🏼
I got this last night. No problem with price matching from Argos page on my phone and got 10% off the final price. I didn't realise it should have been 10% of the difference, but I don't mind about that too much. Thanks!
Is it really that simple, can you really tell the difference between one brand or another? The durability of a break pad for example might depend on your weight, the terrain, and of course the weather, especially wet weather, and how often you brake. Mind you, I wouldn't buy a value brand despite this. That would be a false economy, and too risky. The Clark pads I have however appear fine.
I'd rather use Discobrakes pads - about £4 per pair, or 4 pairs for £12. http://www.discobrakes.com/?s=0&t=2&c=52&p=128
Think years ago buying them from the usual slot in type to all in one long type and amazing difference in stopping poiwer and feel.
£5.48 on Wiggle.
Nope - none at all (largely because I have no idea what your bike is)!
Love this series!
Heat for one of the greatest albums ever made :)
Sadly for many people we're no further in curing suicidal depression.
His albums sold next to nothing upon release,making the originals worth major bucks. However ,Island did try to promote him,with sample tracks on the pink label compilations Nice enough to eat and Bumpers. I've picked up both of these for a pound or two in the last couple of months at boot fairs. It's a nice experience to listen to his music with the pink label revolving around!
Really talented guy, who would of gone places. Great price.
Entered details on YouTube and most videos aren't available for me. Managed to watch one but not my cup of tea.
who am I to deny you https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dutch-hoe-gardening-variety-b-q-1-c-c-hmmmm-2724864 please use responsibly
Good deal, but I'm after a cheap hoe instead

You would have to buy from same seller to make that work. Shame not prime item :(
