Troublesome - do not buy

Advantages: It does what it is supposed to.
Disadvantages: Difficult to start at times, maintenance not always easy, reliability issues.

I have had this item for about 1 1/2 years now, and have never been all that impressed. It does do what it is meant to, but has several drawbacks. Starting procedure is more complex than other models and hot re-starting can be difficult. Impeller can bloc ...

It Sucks.........In The American Sense

Advantages: Great blower
Disadvantages: Crap vacuum

It seems like only a couple of years since I was writing about a Wickes’ own brand garden vacuum/blower. On checking, I see it really was only a couple of years! Well, two seasons worth of use have seen the poor thing off. I wondered why it cost £24 ...

Worx until you need spares

Advantages: Sucks and blows very well
Disadvantages: When you needs spare part the service is useless
