"Bought this to replace an identical unit that had done much work. It winds up easily and the length is very useful working in large yards where the power supply is a long way from the work area. The lead has been driven over by cars and has survived, the only reason for the replacement was some silly s*d drove over the drum while it was plugged in. big flash, crunching plastic, dead lead. If you don't need such a long lead buy a shorter one, these are just as good, just remember if you need a lead to go 10M you will still have to unwind all 45M unless you are using a very low power item. Best then to buy the 20M one. I use one of these too."
"This is a very good cable reel of 45 metres, the price is terrific, it's the second one that I have purchased in a month as I have a long driveway and garden. Very pleased with this purchase and price thank you screwfix."
"Bought this to replace a number of shorter, older extension leads which ended up like a snakes' wedding for "end of the garden" jobs! Fits the bill perfectly and I feel much more confident in using hedge cutters etc safely. Long cable is easy enough to rewind when the job's done and all stores away neatly."
"good value, seems to do the job. The price difference between this and the 30 mtr would make this a no brainier if there's the slightest doubt. Obv not to be used in the wet but for a lot of folks that's hardly an issue. Will do all the jobs I'll need it for I'm sure.Haven't had it long can't comment on reliability"
"I bought this lead to allow me to get power around the garden.
The unit is surprisingly compact for a 45m lead. The cable itself is very flexible and soft making winding-up for storage far easier than the old lead which when used by my wife, generally got left in a heap. I have hopes (possibly in vain) that she will wind this one up. Wish me luck!"
"Bought this to allow me to mow a long lawn with our electric mower.
Plenty of length to the cable, and worth the little bit extra cost over the 30m reel in my opinion. Seems good quality, but only used it once so far. I see it coming in very useful in the future though."
