    Jet Washers

    My old karcher failed in the summer, decided to go and get a stihl re130, without a doubt the best pressure washer I've used, well thought out, tough build and awesome cleaning power, quiet too! Was about 250 with a free patio head.

    Electric chainsaw experience

    Id like to try an MSA220, its supposed to be a big step up from the MSA200. I've been tempted to try the stihl battery stuff, but the cost puts me off when all my other cordless gear is Makita. I highly rate the 36v hedgetrimmer for example so figured I'd try the chainsaw, the one nice advantage...

    Electric chainsaw experience

    I own 11 saws so like to think I know a bit about them, including an MS180 and the 36v Makita 14". The makita is a very good saw, with two 6ah batteries you can prob get 20mins run time, enough to tackle a reasonable domestic tree (12" sort of size). Over 12" it does struggle and you can't...

    Wall mount 16amp 2P+E - with interlock switch?

    Sorry but if your sparky left that house consumer unit in that condition he wants reporting - I get that its an old unit and he's probably had to do the best he could, but the fact you have large gaps either side of that new MCB is unacceptable, someone who didn't know better could put a finger...

    Have you considered getting a roof rack for your car? I'd recommend a trip to MAC timbers, you could easily spend hours looking through his selection of stuff. Mikes also incredibly helpful and a personal friend. I run a small hobby based sawmill up near spalding but do have a drop off at...

    Jigsaw itch. Which of these have you used?

    I've got the Mafell P1CC, an older bosch GST135 and the Makita 4350 and a Makita 18v Brushless Body grip. Do I need 4 jigsaws - nope. Do I like buying ever increasingly expensive tools - Yes :-( The Mafell is good, but not really any better than the Bosch or the festool I've tried. The Makitas...
