Easy to use

" This is now part of my DeWalt collection. Once you get one XR battery tool you get sucked into adding others to maximise the battery options. But not a bad thing when the tool is such good quality. However I didn’t find building it from the box as easy as other reviews. Fitting the guard was not part of the instructions! It said it came complete but it wasn’t. Not difficult, just took me longer than I’d expected. I also moved the grip for better balance. I’m not sure why it needs 2 speeds but it is as powerful as my petrol strimmer - and a lot easier to start! "

" Fitting this was more fiddly than it could have been. The cable termination screws were awkward for both flat and Philips drivers; the nuts for the fixing bolts are loose in slots, not fixed, therefore easy to fall out; and getting all the washers in place using only 2 hands isn't easy. However, all outside lamps seem the same. The gland sticks out too far behind the lamp. Otherwise no complaints !! Too early for reliability scores. "

Good load mover
10 November 2016
By
, Fife, Scotland
" I had a similar version to this but the wheels buckled when I tried to "pull" it. This one is designed better for pulling, but pushing is still the wiser option. This version has a metal lug under the foot plate which prevents the wheels turning inwards. A simple fix to keep the wheels in position. Easy to store when folded. Impressed. Too soon to review reliability. "

Top quality

" These look a quality bit of manufacturing and they work too. From experience of other Turboultra stainless screws you need to avoid torquing them too much or the head snaps. Note: they aren't magnetic. "

" This is way better than previous tapes I've bought. It is softer and more flexible than earlier products. Time will tell how it performs but looks good so far. "

Ice Cool Light
28 November 2014
By
, Fife, Scotland
" What isn't described in the information is the uber-cold tone of this led light. The box says 6500degK which makes it, to me, an unpleasant cold colour. I have a couple of tungsten decorative lamps on the same circuit as this one (which was a replacement for a duff tungsten floodlight) and the colours now look weird. However the construction looks excellent and the amount of light is good for short-distance illumination. If you're happy with cold lighting then this is a good purchase. "

" Not sure what is meant by "fits most wheelbarrows" because none of the many bushes supplied fitted my wheelbarrow. Will be returning it to Screwfix. Can't comment on performance or reliability - it never got out the bag. "

Excellent

" Great light output, nice warm tone, easy fit into GU10 downlight and customer extremely satisfied. Used all 6 bulbs in a home-office and they give an even light. Too early to test reliability but they all worked and there was no hum, as others have reported.
It isn't easy to decide the best LED bulb to use but I plan to stick to these because of performance and price.

Not easy to work with
13 October 2014
By
, Fife, Scotland
" I didn't think I'd complain about T&E cable, but ... The outer sheath seems glued to the inner insulation and makes it a pain if you use wire strippers. You can end up pulling off the outer and inner insulation. If you use a knife then it can get awkward to separate the Blue, particularly, from the outer.
I've had this before with T&E cable but feel its time to moan about it.
Otherwise, handy length for wee jobs.

Good screw !
20 July 2014
By
, Fife, Scotland
" Best screws I've had in a while ! No shearing, no cam-out, good grip, dig their own countersink. Used them on Ipe deck boards and did a good job. Can't say how long before they rust, if the ever do. I chose them over Stainless Steel because I find StSt shear easily. "

What screw sizes, in old money, do they cover - is the smallest one a No 4 screw, or what? Thanks.
