Just to let you know this is on sale at Screwfix for £44. Normally prices are artificially inflated for a month or so and then reduced back to the normal price to cast the illusion you're saving money but this really is on sale. It's the lowest price I've seen it at.

I have the Forge version bought from SF (I think) a while back and they are fantastic. I assume it's the same with are badged name. I'm buying another one today.

Got one from Screwfix on their 'deal of the day' for £35, pleased with it so far.
They also have them in B&Q for £45.

Bastards!

Are you sure it was £35 as I thought it was £44.

If I missed the £35 deal bastards again!

I have often wondered about these things, I often see people using them at the car boots but wondered how sturdy they are compared to my trusty workmates?

I'm 126kg and it took my weight no problem on Saturday when changing my mum's bulb on her outside light.

The one in the review is made by keter but I have the Forge one and now the Mcallister one. Apart from the colour they both are exactly the same. I'm guessing who ever has the patent has moved around manufacturers to find the best deal.

I'm 6'2 (8'6" when drunk) and it's fine with me. I guess at 6'6" everything will be low for you but manufacturers cater for general heights at 5'9"

I got the keter one a few years back, one of my best ever buys, Every home should have one, strong, versatile, easy to store and easy to carry and quick to set up.
