    Hilti are great tools . Try getting replacement parts though . I have two sds hammer chippers in cases needing a basic part.in each . Discontinued parts .... Milwaukee has always had problem with their drills . Hitachi seem the best . Hitli can suck my dick from now on . Milwaukee right angle drill sucks monkey balls . Has failed us many many times in the field .

    Bosch are hands down the worst powertool ive ever owned .

    Dewalt and hitachi seem to have good quality . Dewalt for cordless , my xrp 14.4 v has lasted me 17 years ,batteries are just startijg to fail me .

    Milwaukee saw-zalls are the best

    Right – here’s my experience, as a warning.

    I’ve never done this before – I’m an experienced gardener, but have never grown anything hydroponically. I did read up a lot, on all sorts of sites. Consensus *seemed* to be that all pH meters go bang quite quickly, so buy cheap, replace often. THIS IS WRONG.

    I made the mistake of buying one of the yellow ones for about 12 (they’re everywhere on eBay and Amazon etc) – what a load of SHITE. No matter how often I calibrated it (several times a day, after maybe a week of use!!!) it would quickly drift away. Until I realised this was happening, I was upping and downing my bloody nutrient solution constantly – astonishing I haven't killed my poor little plant, but she seems to be doing well still.

    I posted a negative review on Amazon; the Chinese manufacturer quickly responded to me, and sent me another one. This one doesn't work at all, always freezing at 0 or 7 when I try to calibrate it. Removed the batteries etc several times as they advised me; no success at all.

    I’m trying to do this on the cheap (I know, I know, always a mistake…) as I’m a bit skint, and not even sure dope is the answer for me. But I’ve learned the hard way that there are some things you can’t skimp on, and the pH meter is one it would seem.

    Hope that helps. Oh – yes, sorry, I’ve bought an “Essentials” one now for just under 40, as it seems to be a reasonable compromise between quality and price, but will report back here in a week or two. Also bought the storage unit thingy and some calibration fluid for it.

    Are Black & Decker basically the same as Bosch btw?

    Was a weird one as i grew up (80s/90s) with these both being really popular well spoke of brands, but that really doesn't seem to be the case now, all Bosch stuff just looks plasticy to me now, and I bought a B&D 18v hammer drill a while back and it looks the part but just feels a bit piss weak :P

    I also have to research and procure a full soft landscaping setup later this year and have all the joys of researching what is and isn't pish :P


    My sig appears to be inflicted with entropy

    SLH & Incredible Bulk DWC Actually good, honest.
