Hozelock 2-in-1 Compact Enclosed Hose Reel with 25 m Hose and Connectors
Hozelock 2-in-1 Compact Enclosed Hose Reel with 25 m Hose and Connectors
Price: 38.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Poor packaging let it down, 8 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Box too light gauge for the weight of the reel. It had split down two sides and the rest had bellied. Fortunately, the reel had survived and is a good quality unit.

A good quality hose reel that has replaced my 15 year old one. I expect this one will see me out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not much choice these days, 17 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My previous Epsom scanner packed in. I had always been satisfied with its performance, so went for the same again. Not that there was much choice; seems everyone favours printer/scanners these days. Again, it does all I want very well. The only reason I have for downgrading it to 4* is that it opens on the side and has a much bigger footprint than my previous one. Also, the User Guide is not as easy to use. My next unit will be a combo printer/scanner!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does a superb job. particularly with larger weeds. A must for the elderly in particular, who find bending or kneeling difficult. Well made piece of kit.

I have had a rechargeable for some time now, which no longer holds its charge. At least with this, I can simply change thew battery.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of time, 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The trimmer itself is a good tool, but the telescopic handle is a waste of space! Does not support the trimmer adequately and is too flimsey.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pity about the screen clarity., 20 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I knoe my eyesight is poor, but the screen, whilst a good size, is too faint. Otherwise it does everything I wanted. Overall a good buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars It arrived whilst still being 'Prepared for dispatch'!, 8 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
According to the tracking information, it was still being 'prepared for dispatch', when it arrived! Ordered Monday am (Bank holiday); arrived Tuesday 10.30am. OK, so it cost me an extra 4.00, but in this instance it was worth it. Installation was straightforward once I had sussed the instructions, and document printing is up and running. I am struggling with the on line instructions regarding disc printing, though no doubt I will get there eventually. I have not attempted anything to do with photo printing as yet, but the possibilities look promising. So far, so good!!

4.0 out of 5 stars I'd hate to have to fold a parachute!, 1 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Does the job, but very floppy in the wind. It would help enormously if there was some indication on the outside as to where the front and/or top was. It is a bit of a nightmare to find which way is up, especially in the dark or wind.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shame about the zapper!, 22 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The unit itself is superb: high build quality; excellent sound; a well designed instruction booklet, and reasonably easy to set up. But! - the zapper is a waste of space. The transmitter is on the long side, so you need two hands to drive it: The smooth pads mean you can't feel your way arround it, so have to keep looking at it as well as the console display. It has no numeric key pad, so you have to be close enough to the display pad to see it - which rather defeats the object of having a zapper! The same smooth keys are on the main unit too, which again means you can't feel your way arround. Come on 'Roberts'; you can do better than this!
