Top critical review
Falls below Bahco's normal standard of construction.
on 29 December 2017
Very sadly - since I do favour Bahco tools - the winding handle has not been well engineered. A tiny pin rivet, expanded at one end, is all that holds the plastic swivel handle to the turning arm. And since the turning handle serves to wind as well as lock the turning arm in place it is a key part of the construction and functioning of the line reel. The poorly constructed expanded end of the pin survived about half a dozen windings before simply falling apart, rendering the tool almost useless. Returned it for a refund and will look at the Stanley Fat Max line reel as a replacement.
