If you have really nothing better to do read the "reviews" on this product it always cracks me up ... Hilarious.

540trickzter: I'm after a Brush Cutter to cut our empty section as the grass has overgrown to knee height and waist height around the sides. Can anyone recommend me a make and model or any good specials? Looking to spend $300 or under. What brands to stay away from?


Morrison bc260 split shaft check out M10 with their voucher deal


I just went in and bought this. Hopefully it does the job.

A comparable model I was looking at was the Ryobi 25.4cc from Bunnings for $249. But ended up going with the Morrison because of your recommendation, plus I get a $50 voucher.

I'll go back in tomorrow and use the $50 voucher to buy a bottle of 2 stroke oil and a oil mixer bottle.


There is a mixing bottle in the box :)


Thanks for letting me know as I hadn't opened it yet because I thought I would leave it sealed until I use it.

I've have since opened it and it does indeed have a mixing bottle inside. You saved me from wasting some voucher money on another one. Cheers!

One vacuum per hand?

That would be fun. Sadly first world problems of owning more than one property is the more likely explanation

Probably the best automatic espresso machine deal this year. 

Check at the Panasonic NC-ZA1 from HN, and for an additional $59 you have 4 years warranty, that is peace in mind for an automatic machine. Yes, they WILL fail.

It's almost the same as Sunbeam EM9300, both are rebranded of a German/Chinese WIK 7535. But as Panasonic approves it, also at this price and warranty terms it can't be beaten.

Huchiz: Probably the best automatic espresso machine deal this year. 

Panasonic NC-ZA1 $355 from HN, for total $414 you have 4 years warranty, that is peace in mind for an automatic machine. Yes, they WILL fail.

$414? I went to their website, the 4 yr extended warranty doubles the price . 

Did you get a 4 yr warranty for $60 without haggling?

What is the coffee like from this?

Yes, that is almost too good to be true. I have had it for half day now and only tried with $4.99 Jeds beans. It's better than Dolce Gusto machine with "Espresso Intenseo" pods already. 

Don't need haggling. I think the website only shows the warranty cost based on the original price. Ask anyone in store, they will give you $59.

Yup - that's a heck of a clearance price!

 

Typically it makes good coffee, maybe not scorching hot coffee like some Kiwi's like (they also like burnt beans by all accounts)...

I paid way more than that for my jura which while being more commerical looking, is total overkill for me at home. Not hard being better than the coffee in the dolche gusto capsules - The cappachino ones tastes like someone has made some bad instant and added some frothy milk to it.

Beans are so much cheaper to run than capsules, will p[ay for the machine in no time.

I was looking to buy a semiautomatic maybe a Breville, but found this by chance last night. Did some searches online it is not bad, but I was worried about the reliability and the website shows horrible expensive cost for extended warranty. It's all solved today haha.

I can confirm the coffee is hot enough, maybe not "scorching hot" lol, you have 5 temp setting to play with. Only the milk is truly not hot enough as it passes through the machine too fast, I don't know whether this is a common issue with machines of such design. But i can live with that, lots of ways to fix that problem.

I got one of those Panasonic coffee machine for $355 today; think it's good enough and didn't bother with extra extended warranty, though I was offered only $50 for two year full replacement warranty.  I don't need that as in two years' time I'll probably start looking for new coffee toys :) 

The guy in HN said they bought a whole container of this machine at very good price and had been selling the bulk of it OK (at a much higher price earlier) and that's why they just wanted to clear the rest of their stock at this price now...

They other good deal I saw today was the Sony 55" 4K Smart TV for $1599 at NL; believe that is the same as what they offered on boxing day last year.  Well with the same offer price they are not selling as fast today as they did last year.

It's interesting to know that HW actually bought the bulk rather than clearing it out on behalf of Panasonic.
