Service on chainsaw, fix intermittent problem on an ageing strimmer.

"Staff are pleasant, knowledgable and go the extra mile.
Wouldn’t want any one else near my chainsaw, strimmers or power washer etc

Strimmer had intermittent issue which only showed up after 10/15 mins hard work, quite difficult to diagnose especially on the oldest of my two Stihl strimmers. Was certain it was time to scrap it but once again, Galloway Hire Tools came to the rescue.

Felt very safe inside premises as full Covid-19 precautions in lace and can pay contactless.

Purchase of Stihl 2 stroke brushcutter. Pre-Sales Advice given, options explained, tool demonstration given.

"I like this company. This was an excellent purchase transaction, rather than tool hire, but I do have previous very satisfactory experience of their service / repair work. The latest was last year on my very elderly Stihl brushcutter. Galloway Tool Hire worked miracles for me and succeeded in a partial resurrection, but they did advise that the machine had reached the end of its serviceable life (hardly surprising after 25+ years). I fully agreed with that advice and although I nursed it along for a few more months, I had no choice but to replace it recently.

I made several pre-purchase enquiries with them and the Galloway team very quickly, but thoroughly, identified the best new machine for my needs. Happily the machine was in stock on site and I was able to visit the following day to make the final choice. Interesting to note that Galloway seemed to have a wide range of stock in hand which contrasted very well with some online sellers that I checked out.

Something to beware of - several internet sellers appeared to be offering the same machine at discounted rates - but their small print warned of long delays in supply.

The purchase transaction itself was perfect. The Galloway team were helpful, knowledgeable and helpful throughout. I was given every chance to check the weight, balance and general feel of the machine the machine. Once I was happy, a little fuel was added and a full demonstration of starting and operation was given. Foe me, this level of service is why I prefer to use local retailers for any significant purchase. As for price, I was very pleasantly surprised at how competitive the Galloway pricing turned out.

It is really unnecessary to sing the praises of Stihl machines themselves (it's the very best in my view) so altogether, I found this to be a very easy and transaction and I have no doubt that any spares or service will be very competently provided as and when needed in the future.

Thank you Galloway!"

Sorry to hear you find the value low Trevor - you got a great deal on this saw at 20% off and this deal is no longer available so 1 of the last - was a great price with the machine being built, oiled and fuelled ready to go.

Took my Eliet shredder in as it was not running. Within a week I received a call to say it was ready, I was pleasantly surprised with the cost of the repair, and for the lengths gone to to obtain a new safety switch and additional carburetor cleaning. As the bill was very reasonable I treat my self to a new Stihl hedge cutter!

"A business on Heathhall Industrial Estate , Dumfries, a little out of the way but well worth the effort to find. My visit was within covid 19 restrictions and Galloway Tool Hire had good systems in place. On entering you are met with a well stocked and presented shop offering a substantial range of branded garden and maintenance equipment along with a wide range of accessories. The lady who dealt with me I presume to be part of the owning family was very pleasant, knowledgeable and thorough in dealing with my transaction.

Whilst I was waiting to be served I overheard, possibly my assistants husband explaining and selling a pressure washer and cabling to another customer, I have never overheard a sale with so much detail! The same gentleman broke off to explain what he had done to restore my shredder back to working condition.
So if you need a new machine, help, advice or repair have confidence to visit this excellent business, I will surely return."

Purchase of Stihl AR2000 Backpack Battery, Battery Storage Box, and Weight Kit for AP adapter. Price listed is for the AR2000 Backpack Battery.
 
Cost: £750
 

"Fantastic kit, no issue with overheating even when faced with the extreme work of logging log after log until the AR2000 backpack battery was discharged. The battery can cut an IBC of green willow logs on a single charge. These were not withies, but proper trees, some of which were the full depth of the bar.

The battery will also work on seasoned standing dead WychElm, but needed supplementing with 2 x 300s batteries to do an IBC crate. Very hard work on any chainsaw, impressed with it all the more being battery.
The 2 x 300s batteries did manage to bring up the hot light when done solidly. The hot light only comes on near the end of the batteries discharge. So work in batches with loading and moving in between cutting and there is no issue. Obviously being WychElm the chain was sharpened several times as it is hard as can be!
The saw is a MSA220C, also supplied by Galloway Hire Tools earlier this year."
