To add to the debate about Florabest Tools,I have all of their Electrical Gardening Tools,perhaps I have been lucky with my collection,but common sense will tell you that they are not Industrial Tools for heavy work,In moderate work I have cut Logs with the Electric Chain-Saw,Strimmed the Grass Edges,Rotovated areas of Ground and so on.
I'm not promoting them but you do get what you pay for and if you expect more then Purchase elsewhere.
PS.how many other Companies give a 3yr Guarantee with their Products.

My view on Florabest products is, the more parts they have to them, them more likely to break. A Chainsaw vs. A Spade

Additionally, one takes a risk when buying these products. Question is how much money are you willing to risk?

I personally don't take that risk on high priced items.

me

p.s I bought a three head interchangeable hoe / cultivator, and am loving it.

well at least the chain-saw lasted longer than their garden recliner chairs...they have not even lasted 1 season before breking and nearly causing a serious accident...and Lydl will NOT replace them becuase 1 year down the line I NOT retained the receipt... Surely they know what they sell?? [/b]

a friend told me that a lot of lidl stuff uses non-standard parts, so often they will give you a refund rather than offering repair or replacement, as by the time the item has broken, they are not carrying them anymore.

i bought one of thier electric lawnmowers 4 years ago and it was brilliant.we live on 1/2 acre and most was field for horses before we moved in.the lawnmower coped brillianty even when the grass was 2 feet tall and had fallen over.unfortunately it stopped working this week,something to do with the motor i think,but after what i put it through it isn't surprising.
