The right Cable!!
26 Jun 2014
By rbir
, Shenfield, Essex
"Very good quality cable able and was most inpressed by the ease of using the reel, have used other ones in the past that are not anything like as good as this one. I like the power on/off switch, heat sensor cut out and the 4 sockets on it. Would thoughly recommend."

Good value long extension lead
25 Jun 2014
By RedPete
, Cotswolds
"I needed a long extension lead which would take some abuse as I'm renovating a house at the moment. This was just the job and at a reduced price too. Illuminated on/off switch is a useful feature as is the thermal cut out. A sticker reminds the user of the maximum load partially wound and fully unwound which is helpful. Unlike a lot of extensions the cable actually stayed on the reel when winding in saving hours of frustration untangling which is not good after a long day!! Another great product from Screwfix unbeatable on price and quality - I would highly recommend and am about to buy the 45m reel for another job. Thanks Screwfix!"

Cheap and decent
4 Jun 2014
By charlesWW
, solihull
"I purchased this after cutting through a previous cable reel which had black cable. - not easy to spot on soil.
This cable is bright clue which is better although orange would have been perfect.
The local on-off switch is useful particularly when isolating equipment if there is a jam.
I needed a reel that was longer than 25m and shorter than 50m and this fits the bill. Not too heavy, easy enough to roll back up and with a useful clip to prevent it from unreeling on its own.
Overall there is nothing to dislike."

"Very good value as it was on offer. The warning about unreeling it when taking a high load is good. A mate burnt out a 50m reel by using it wound up while using a heat gun."

"Only had it a couple of days, but it does what it says on the tin. I like the fact that it's switched and has a safety cutout. Got it on offer so very pleased overall, but can't comment on long term reliability."

The only problem I have is that the handle should be canted as it doesn't sit straight when lifted.

By Lagris

"I have had two of these cable reels fail on me for no obvious reason. They make it impossible to get inside to see why it failed.
They are cheap but the time wasted due to the faults far outweighs any money saved on the reel.
Very disappointing."
