Customer Reviews

By NigelLong on 31st July 2022
"I was sceptical before buying this but after much research decided that this was the right choice. It is an excellent wheel if you want something compact and portable. Despite the low power motor it produces an excellent torque at low speeds and is virtually impossible to stall. It runs smoothly in either direction and is easy to clean. It does come with two plastic bats but I would recommend buying some MDF ones which are available as these are better. I have absolutely no regrets about buying this and would recommend it."
