Decent tool for the money
07-Apr-2014
By
, Essex
"Used it to chase some switch lines from ceiling to light switch, fitted 25mm conduit nicely on the 30mm setting. Worked very well & very quickly.
Also used in basement to chase around 15 meters, this was quite hard but still performed well.
Does kick back sometimes & stops while cutting but you just need to take it slowly & gently, nice & straight. Once you get use to how it works it's fine.
Managed to fit my henry Hoover on with a bit of duct tape, would still recommend wearing a mask.
Would recommend"

Superb
20-Dec-2013
By
, Buckinghamshire
"I had mixed feelings before purchasing and before using, due to the mixed reviews, but I took the plunge and bought this wall chaser.
I'm a spark by trade, so I don't have time for products to let me down, but this is superb and doubley (if that's a word) so for the money. First appearances out of the box are a bit rough around the edges but it's a fantastic performer.
As for other peoples comments about the machine stopping in the wall, perhaps they were not guiding the machine in a straight line, thus putting a side load onto the cutting discs. Mine certainly doesn't stop in walls and I made a cut in a sand/cement mix plaster wall which is rock hard and into hard brick walls and it was like a knife through butter - a chase takes seconds.
Dust extraction. I read other peoples comments about not being able to fit a vacuum cleaner and about the machine being dusty. I have a Dyson and I found that if I use 32mm waste pipe as an adaptor with some duct tape to ensure it doesn't pull free, my Dyson takes the dust away in an instant leaving what I would honestly say as a 95% dust free application. There's going to be some residual dust due to the work, but there was no clouds of dust being thrown across the room, which there most certainly would have been without the vac attached.
What can I say, it works, it works well, for the money too, it's simply fantastic."

"this saved time and money, worked brilliantly, and would highly recommend to anyone. thought it might be too lightweight for the amount of chasing out i need to do, but it worked a treat!!"

Worth for noise and dust
30-Oct-2012
By
, Worthing
"I had around 20m of chasing to run - mix of brick and block. Bought this product as I could not face chasing by hand.
Takes a few seconds for the discs to spin up to speed but can live with that. You need a firm grip as the unit can flip if it catches.
I should have thought about PPE. Get a dust mask and googles.
Noise is as expected. LOUD. Amount of dust was shocking. next time I will need this I will get a vacuum attached and all PPE.
Seriously worth the money though. Cracking tool. Just get PPE's up!!!!!"

excellent chasing tool
20-Jul-2012
By
, Hertford
"I used one of these that did not belong to me and was a bit sceptical that it was going to be any good(price seemed to cheap for this tool) how wrong i was. This thing is great used it to chase a couple of property's with no problems at all. Just purchased my own.
Highly recommended..........

Good product
23-May-2012
By
, Wales
"I've used this chaser to rewire an 1850's house with stone walls, so it was never going to be an easy or clean job! The chaser coped well, I left it on the 30mm setting throughout as that allowed me to finish off the chase with a cold chisel and use 20mm plastic conduit to protect the cables. The chaser does produce a lot of dust but has a vacuum connection facility which works pretty well (the vacuum will need emptying frequently, but thats not an issue with the chaser). Its not too loud and as mentioned by another reviewer will now fit into the case with the discs in place. Good quality for the price, recommended"

Easy to use
09-May-2012
By
, Devon
"Had to do a few metres of chasing across a concrete floor to a kitchen island unit so took the plunge and bought this chaser rather then using an SDS drill. In use it's easy if you've used angle grinders before, and the soft start makes it easier still. Other reviews seem to suggest that if you hook up a vacuum cleaner to this (and the previous model) then you'll get 'virtually no dust'. I wish that had been the case for me as I covered everything in a fine concrete dust even with it hooked up. If you were doing wall plaster it would cut like a knife through butter and probably kick up way less dust. A broad chisel is supplied in the case to break the 'fin' that is lelt between the two slots, it's very useful actually doing the job just right and a nice little touch by Erbauer."

Wall chaser fits in the case!
20-Mar-2012
By
, Wallingford
"This is a decent bit of kit. It's the updated version of the previous model and erbauer/screwfix have taken design limitations of it on board. The wall chaser now fits into the case with the blades in place, as with the previous model you had to remove them before putting it away. Spot on for the money, esp with a 2 yr warranty!"

"did the job frist class

the only thing to improve would be an swivial adaptor for vacum cleaner.

Awful instruction booklet
28-Jul-2014
By
, Wales
"The wall chaser itself is very good and saves so much time. Easy to use. The only drawback was the instruction booklet does not actually show you how to get the disc out of the wall chaser. On phoning the technical advice line number on the booklet, they were worse than useless, did not have a clue, the woman who answered the phone did not even know what a wall chaser was even after being given the serial number. Had to go back to the screwfix store that I purchased it from and the guy on the counter figured it out, and agreed that the instruction booklet did not show how to remove the disc."

"Been pondering whether to buy one or not - so took the plunge to avoid chasing 6 new cable drops.
So glad I did this, but don't forget to buy a mask, some googles, some gloves and ear defenders too!"

Doesn't like going forward
22-May-2013
By
, Cambridge
"Bought as a replacement to earlier Erbuaer model,
Pro's
Case allows you to store without removing disks
Con's
Can't remove disks anyway I might have a fight with it one day to see what I may be doing wrong if I ever get bored enough, or more likely when the disks need replacing
Doesn't like being pushed away from you, only cuts nicely when allowed come back on it's self (eg cuts down a wall fine but up a wall is a mess). A bit odd as I've not encountered this issue before.
Recommend? well it's comparatively cheap,
Reliability? don't know yet.

Wall chaser
26-Nov-2012
By
, Newent
"I bought this to use instead of a normal angle grinder since it has a dust extraction facility.
This is very poor in my opinion. It should have at dust bag or an attachment that fit a hose.
I tried it firstly with my trade Dyson and the attachment fell off all the time. I then purchased a Henry Hoover and the attachment does not fit snug with the dust extraction outlet. So folks beware if you are going to create a lot of dust which this thing does - make sure your customer and neighbours are aware.
Apart from this poor feature it is very powerful and fast at wall chasing."

By
, Stourbridge
"First time i have used a wall chaser and i was not sure what to expect. I worked out that you have to let the machine get up to full speed before cutting into the wall or it will just stop. It did cut into engineering brick from floor to ceiling in approx 10 minutes.should have connected the chaser to the vacuum cleaner as i had to leave the room for 30 minutes for the dust to settle . A well built useful tool at a very good price. A good purchase."

Creates dust!
21-Aug-2014
By
, Stockton on Tees
"This chaser was bought to replace a model which had burned out. It works fine provided it's kept in a straight line in the wall. My issue with it is the amount of dust which is created. Even with my Henry Commercial attached the whole room is a thick fog of dust within seconds, might as well just use a grinder! With my last chaser the hoover collected all but the tiniest amount of dust (and it was half the price!)"

Mediocre performance
04-Mar-2013
By
, Surrey
"Overall performance has been okay. Main challenge was that the dust extractor connection does not appear to be a standard size - had to use duct tape to connect my vacuum. Found that the cutter tends to stall quite easily when running up a 1930s breeze block wall."

Poor replacement
12-May-2013
By
, Bath
"I bought the original 3 years ago. It was brilliant. Worked it to death, still going strong. Unfortunately it was stolen.
I replaced it with this with the later version, what a mistake, the replacement unit had poor dust control and less power. I took it it back and got the original.

Erbauer wall chaser
25-Mar-2013
By
, Peterborough
"A cheap chaser for very occasional use - unfortunately i wanted something for more than this & ended up returning it.
The machine took a while to get up to speed & kept slowing / stopping while cutting chase - may have been better if only 1 disc was fitted but then why make it to take 2?. I didn't feel confident that it would last.
Dust extraction was very good with just my Henry coupled up but would be better with sprung bottom plate for initial plunge.
If you want a chaser for occasional use it's good value, if like me you want something that will last you'll have to look at spending
£300 +
