GUYS DO NOT BUY.. I RUN A PROPERTY MAINTENANCE FIRM. WE BOUGHT ONE.. STUFF JUST SHAKES APART FROM HARNESS TO BOLTS. RENDERED USELESS FROM 3-4TH USE. CUSTOMER SERVICES LIE ABOUT SENDING SPARE PARTS. WRANGLED WITH THEM FOR MONTHS SORTING THIS OUT. DEFINITEY AVOID!!
Realy happy with mine, had it 2 years, built it, fillled with petrol and it started 2nd pull, very powerful, very clear instruction manual written in real Engllish. Before I bought I emailed the company with a question and the following day had a phone call in reply answering my question then a week later another email asking if there was anything else they could help with. Agree with comments on bump line feed but hey at this price buy another head if it worries you. No problems here. Thanks for the post.
I've used SGS recently for ordering one of their trolley jack and axle stand sets. Really good quality and I know SGS get a lot of good reviews on various forums too...
You are correct. Anything above £100 purchases I use CC for piece of mind. Is the cover per item or per transaction. For example the item is £80 but I bought extra blades etc in same transaction to make it £110, does section 75 cover that right?
Rubbish, buy from a local garden machinery seller. Get a better machine for your money, after service and support a local shop!
Interested in why the cold votes?
Price now back up to £329.99.
For anyone still following this thread I, tried out my McCulloch wheeled strimmer for the first time today and I have manged to clear perhaps 4 times as much ground in the same time it would have taken me with my hand held petrol strimmer. For my situation, the usefulness of the machine is beyond question. True, I may get to a point where I don't need it any more, but if that happens I will just sell it on. I have created a new deal listing for the McCulloch machine.
A brand name that has a reputation to maintain will have lot's of quality control checks in China. no names like this couldn't care less........everyone is trying to get rich quick in china. I have been dealing with them for years.
That machine looks like great fun, love a bit of Chinesium!
Its a bit late for this discussion now but I wonder if those advocating a normal strimmer have also taken in to account that to get a 4 stroke one is going to cost at least the same or probably more, so far as I can tell? For me, this is a much better alternative, given that I am over 60 and not so physically fit as I once was.
The strimmer with this us good as useless as plastic string keeps breaking every 10 to 20 seconds. Lawn mower ok.
135 miles away....woohoo :-(
Still a handful in stock. To find them you need to enter your postcode, if there are none near you, change the store and then press the tell me where button, under the happy to travel section, and you'll find the nearest one. I can still see the one 90 miles from me.
Out of stock and no home delivery :-(
Yeh 159 now
Yep £156 now
Just tried it and it doesn't work
Back up to full price.
I used the mower today, it does the job. Didn't leave too much mess. Actually think it's good! Compacts the grass well.
Shall I go for this strimmer or the SGS one : Hyundai 52 cc 2-Stroke Petrol Grass Trimmer/Strimmer/Brushcutter HYBC5200 https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01AFZT11S/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apa_i_Lt3cBbNZTBXF2
Don't know if I should go for a smaller engined 4 stroke or a large engined 2 stroke? How much hassle is it mixing fuel with oil to fill up a 2 stroke?
Mmmm brush cutter, way more dangerous than a strimmer... These are for over grown gardens that haven't been touched in years. For just touching up edges definitely don't use this, I used one for going through some brambles and I didn't feel comfortable with a spinning blade whizzing round just in front of me.
Subjective really , I'm 6ft 7 find it comfortable enough but yeah it is a bit. Only negative i can say more to do with harnesss, the harness straps come out the harness if you have it loose, there isn't much room for adjustment if you like the strimmer to be at a certain angle when cutting. Also it's loud at full throttle
is it very big and heavy?
Garbage..the reel doesn't self wind...Had to manually reel out more line twice in 5mins. Will be returning this rubbish
Looks like they are making a loss and cant compete with amazon
Yup, take a look at the banner at the top of their homepage.
What's happening to Tesco direct ? Closing down ?
The wife's been looking for a new leg shaver. Should do nicely 😁
Take your boxers off for a better joke.
nice joke m8 tell it again
This is the worst cock ring I have ever used. Don't waste your money.
I bought one from Lidl decent one for 40.. Can anyone comment how does it do compared to the Argos one
If you are looking for a cordless 18v have a look at the Mac Allister at Screwfix. Has very good reviews: https://www.screwfix.com/p/mac-allister-mgtp18li-18v-2-0ah-li-ion-cordless-grass-trimmer/5071r Pity these are no longer £34.99 like they were a lot of last year!
I'm looking for a deal on a grass trimmer. Really not sure which one to go for
Don't have the strimmer but have both the hedge trimmers (normal and expendable) in the range and am impressed with these. A lot better than I feared for the money, fine in a smallish garden and no problems with the batteries - touch wood! - which are the same as in the strimmer.
These are rubbish, put the £30 towards a decent one.
I've got this, good and lightweight, but wish it was two line spool not just one. Not sure it can be changed either.
The 26 is 2.5Kg whereas the 23 is only 1.7Kg. Might make a difference to some.
I would suggest going to Screwfix and buy the Art 26 SL... Better and only £2 difference https://www.screwfix.com/p/bosch-art-26-sl-280w-230v-corded-grass-trimmer/9604H?tc=NT5&ds_kid=92700019785405820&ds_rl=1249484&ds_rl=1245250&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI__XjiNKQ2wIVjrftCh0hQwVHEAQYASABEgJVnvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CL6DhIvSkNsCFQy0UQodj_kLeA
Rather buy from Amazon than wickes even at same price though, customer service.
So much heat? hmmm same price in Wickes and usually around £23-25 anyway. https://pricespy.co.uk/home-garden/gardening-tools/lawn-soil-maintenance/strimmers/bosch-art-23-sl--p2591977
I have an LXT drill and you can use the battery from it for these tools. No batteries are included in this deal but you can always purchase a spare from around £20 on eBay
Will the battery and charger from my drill be the same?
The deal is a belter. I have to admit I’m a little wary of non branded batteries. But the price is good and 5000+ have been sold on eBay! Having 2 batteries will give great flexibility too as I have a large garden
Thanks for the reply. Is that the best rate going then? My Dewalt stuff is still solid, will not need replacing for a bit. Will keep checking to see if better deals around but this is tempting.
I’ve ordered compatible batteries off eBay. Took a chance with them. 2x4.0Ah £40
This is what I read over and over again in the reviews. This just cannot be ignored and now has me steering clear of black and decker battery strummers. I’m now left wondering what the best battery powered option is, with similar specifications or better, at around this price.
I've had two and both bearings in the cutting head went. The first after 3 months, the second after 12 months. Not robust enough for brushcutting. And it took 4 months to get the first one repaired at the black and decker authorised repair shop!
Seems to have build quality and reliability issues, which is a shame.
Wish they would reduce the price of its little brother to about £80-90 then I’d bite.
These are so handy bought one 4 years ago
Ditto the folks above - got mine for £90 on Amazon just under a year ago. Very good strimmer, powerful and the battery life has never been an issue in my suburban garden.
It was £89 on Amazon a couple of weeks ago and posted on HUKD - I bought then. It doesn't drop that low very often according to camelcamelcamel. Amazon may well match or beat the Very price shortly - they have been charging around £140 over the last few days. I'm really pleased with mine - use it on the allotment - battery lasts around 40 mins on the eco-setting. Definitely worth £89 (I installed the Amazon toolbar for an extra fiver off) I'd hold out for a lower price than £109.99
It was an Amazon deal of the day I think. Camel camel should show how often it dips but not in a position to look at the mo.
Yeah agreed, but best price at the moment. I will hang on to hopefully the price you paid!
Very good but a bit dear at this price. I paid £89 last year.
I had similar experience..the battery ran out in no time & I was literally running to empty the bag but still couldn't finish even half of my medium sized garden(200m2). I wasted the entire weekend lawn mowing multiple times as it takes around 3 hours to charge but just 20 mins to die. Happy with Argos "No quibble returns policy" though. Still trying to figure out my next purchase :/
crap mower and the battery is awful too. took it straight back and got myself a mountfield petrol one
Price now up to £199.99
yes i love it .. empty bag more often if you having to rake after cutting or cut more often..had to smile at women across the rd using corded mower. cord kept getting in way and she whipping the cord out the way.lol cordless is the way to go.
Picked this up yesterday after looking at various ones for over a month. Deliberated so much was getting on my nerves. Used it today on front and back lawns roughly 120m squared in total. Did them in one go and still had enough battery to strim the front and back. One battery did die when strimming (not a problem as strimmer uses 1 at a time) but it did both lawns on turbo mode first due to time between the last cut. Using it on eco mode for the sequential cuts will probably last even longer should you need it to. Absolute game changer for me coming from a corded flymo. Well happy with it and would definitely recommend. 8)
Seems to be lots of stock, good deal. Thanks OP.
Link for Bosch from Amazon please?
Just bought a Bosch from Amazon for roughly the same price/spec. Why bother with this?
It’s a challenge to get two uses out of it
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
How the hang did you get it put together, tried for 2 hours and can't get the easy fit gadget to set handles up.
We havs bosch which we bought about 11 or 12 years ago. In first few weejs use a wheel cap camd off and needed reattaching frequently. Other than that its been if until a couple weejs ago when it started to spark. I think we will give this ago as not impressed with bosch.
I have a Bosch one, and I wouldn't but another one. No comment on the one in this post really, as I haven't owned/used a S+J mower. My Bosch mower, which is a couple of years old isn't really the greatest of quality. It has 7 different height settings, which is great, apart from the fact the lever was cheap plastic that just snapped off recently. It was clunky to use and change the height setting. It really didn't stay set on a setting, it would slowly sink down. Probably the most annoying/poorest thing about the mower. The handles I have had to tie rap up because the very cheap plastic used to hold them in place have snapped off over time. So all in all, I wouldnt buy a Bosch one again. I will try my luck with another mower before buy Bosch again.
Thanks OP. Just in time and exactly what i need.
