"I bought this in the Summer and weekly use and leaving it outside do not seem to have had any adverse effect. I will keep it out of the cold weather for the Winter, but this will still be fine in the Spring and I expect it to last."
"Very good product at a good price. Plastic hose guns break very easily because I keep the gun at the hose at all times ready for whenever I want to use it and therefore it is always out in the weather, now that I have this one it will last the hose out."
"They're good, very good for the price, but don't last long in an industrial environment - maybe that's expecting too much or maybe our staff are just too heavy handed, either way we order them in fours and expect each one to last about a month."
"Actually spent more money on a hozelock product first, got it home, it leaked. Took it back to the garden centre, got a refund & purchased this from Screwfix at under half the price. Aluminium body is more solid than the plastic of hozelock. It's a bit rough round the edges but for £8 I have absolutely no complaints."
"I bought a metal cased spray gun because all the Hozelock plastic spray guns use to split after heavy frost and thaw. The metal casing will prevent this and hopefully last a long time. Its a shame that the metal gun has not got multi spray patterns"
