    I've used about 4 or 5 different types and they're all much the same. Couldnt pick out a brand for you, but I do prefer the 3.5 inch heads and retainer springs so the head wont fall of the pole though.

    hehe nothing that exciting,they phoned to say i hadnt paid my db that month but if i wanted i could pay by card over the phone,near shit masel,thought my account had been raided,rush home,log on to find it had been paid,phoned the condesending little twat, said he would look into it,never heard a thing back.this happened 6 months on a trot until i told them if they didnt sort it i was sending tools back and cancelling contract.then they sent me wrong sander back when mine went in for repair and the eejit says (oh yes we got 2 in that day)lol.
    i swear to god if the man at the sharp end made as many mistakes as the pen pushers he wouldnt have his job long.
    rant over,bet your sorry you asked now ek.

    The office staff are on drugs I think! Fedex collected our broken vaccuum last week from site, and delivered a new one at the same time, which lasted a whopping 10 seconds before cutting out! They also sent Fedex to collect the same broken one from our workshop! 2 vans sent to collect the 1 vaccuum! They also said they never recieved a sander which was sent back in August even though the same Fedex guy delivered a replacement one at the same time
