What Users Say
The feedback for this product has been great. We have found that people find the tool to be very well built and perform well with all of the attachments. Most users seem to be really impressed with the finish that the tools deliver and feel that it will last a long time due to the excellent design and robustness of the product.
Those who have large gardens and require a lot of work doing found that all the tools were up to the job and it didn’t disappoint so it’s safe to say that this is suitable for large jobs, but probably not for commercial use as some people have found that after long periods of time the unit can become a little heavy and therefore more cumbersome to use.
- 5 tools in 1 product
- Well built and designed to last
- Built by Draper who are a reputable brand

- Can become heavy after long use
What We Say
Comparing this to other, similar products you can definitely see why this one is more expensive. The parts are of a higher quality and we feel that it is more likely to stand the test of time than some garden tools we have seen in our experience. Not only are the parts of superior quality but you get 5 of them, so you really should be able to do all your gardening tasks with this one tool.
The petrol engine is not as powerful as some others we have seen but the power output of 750W is sufficient to do a good job and deal with the majority of stubborn, overgrown areas in most gardens.
Overall, we really like this high quality product and think that you will too. It’s not flashy, but sturdy and should last you a long time so there will be no excuse for not cutting the hedge, trimming the edges of the lawn and cutting back and rogue branches because this tool does it all!
Is it Right for you?
