Very poorly made tape measure. The tape has snapped on a few of these once extended over 3 meters. The end of the tape has come off aswell. Not worth it.

I bought this with a little trepidation, as it was expensive for a tape measure and quite heavy but it has worked well. Working on my own most of the time you need a tape which will hold up its own weight, and this does just that even when it is extended much further than you would expect it to hold its own weight. I would recommend just for this quality.

Very good tape measure, had mine for around 1 year now and it's still up to its full potential. Can stand out at around 3.8m before it'll drop. But generally a very good tape!

Very sturdy measuring tape. Can take alot of abuse as measuring tapes often do when being used by plumbers. Nice clear measurements. Trouser clip of needed. I find this Dewalt tape harder wearing and at a good price compared to other brands

I bought this tape measure as an impulse buy on a sale, and what a good buy it was. It is one of the best tape measures I have. Robust it has taken many falls and had a few swims and still works fine.

Strong well made bit of kit, very robust with clear figures that even I can see, it even survived a drop of 15 ft from a ladder, if it does ever break, I will get the same again, price could be a bit cheaper though.

This is my current preferred tape measure, chunky but not to big in size, rugged and very well manufactured. A very good tape measure and value for money, you will not be disappointed.

Had an Estwing hammer when I started my apprenticeship back in 94, still going strong today! Good quality products. You pay that little bit more than other brands but if you look after your tool ... it will look after you !! Ha. Can’t fault this brand of hammer. Go on treat yourself!

Just converted to these from another brand. I am very impressed with them, they clean nearly everything that is hard to remove with other products. They have a variety of different wipes and each priced reasonably. The only disappointment is that they are not wet enough and they seem to dry out very quickly once out of the container.

I have the 1721 model, same as this but with extra functions. Well priced MFTs straight forward to use. The 1721 can test type AC, A & B RCDs which is great. The leads can be temperamental and could be better (the older 1500 series leads were much better. I have changed my leads at least 3 times in 4 years. (I do a LOT of commercial testing so this does have an impact) All in all very good set of MFTs at a good price.

Great testers for everyday safe isolation and fault finding. No electrician should be without these. Easy to use and navigate the settings, and has auto off function (which is great as the apprentice keeps leaving them switched on!!!!) They bounce well, and brush it off ready for the next test. Much better than the cheap alternatives.
