Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not that good! Bought this one 12 months ago as a replacement for an old reel as I was fed up with it not rewinding cleanly and the lead was always in a tangle. This lead seemed very good with built in RCD and a wire cage to guide the cable on the lead. Main problem is there is a nylon bush which holds the reel to the frame which has just broken leaving me with a good reel and a sturdy frame but no means of fitting one to the other :( Back to using the old reel I guess.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from What I was looking for. Useful RCD at supply end, so leave plugged in for power to shed 20+ metres away. Good value on comparison

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Different than it's picture Seems a reasonable product however it has a different plug than that pictured.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Extension reel I found it to be a well made, light extension reel that unwound very easily. The rcd plugs into the mains and then I plug it into one of the four reel sockets to transport it. There is a cable guide consisting of two wires forming a loop that you slide the wire between but I found it was little help as any slack in the wire and it gets a mind of its own causing tangles. Gave it 4 stars as I will probably sort out tangle issue as I get used to it. Reliability unknown.

If I only use 5 meters extended from the reel, will the RCD trip?. Otherwise do you have to pull full length from reel to avoid power trip activating?.
Asked by: Wallang
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The RCD plug on this Masterplug Switched 4 Socket Cable Reel + RCD (Outdoor Power) 25m 10A is there to protect users against shocks by detecting a lower Neutral power flow than the Live, how much cable you have pulled out will not affect this. The Thermal Cut-Out in the drum, however, will trip if you try to draw more than 720W of power through a partially or fully coiled cable so if you are planning to use more than this amount of power then you will need to unwind the full 25m to avoid suddenly losing power until the drum has cooled back down again.

Has this extension got the RCD built into reel, or is it on the plug?

Asked by: RochdaleCowboy
Believe it or not, it only shows a thermal cut out, on/off switch and power on indicator lamp. No mention of a built in RCD. My error, but my question still stands, as I have another reel with a thermal cut out built in and that 5 meter cable has to be fully extended to allow operation. I intend to use the item to power lawn mower, scarifier, hedge cutters and perhaps chainsaw the largest power consumer at 1700W. I am surprised that screwfix don't answer these sort of technical questions. Anyhoo, thanks for responding.

The specification says 10A and 240V, but also max power is 3120W. But 10A@240V is 2400W whereas 13A would be 3120W. So is it 10A, 2400W or 13A, 3120W? Or is my Ohms law wrong!

Asked by: trxy
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This product uses 10A rated cable so you are correct that the fully unwound maximum load should read 2,400W. The RCD which is supplied, however, does have a 13A rating so a maximum load of 3,120W.

I need to use a garden tool which powers at 240v . Can I use product 55495? Thanks

Asked by: popmoll
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This cable reel has a cable rated for a maximum constant current flow of 10A, which means a maximum of 2,400W of power consumption. If your garden tool runs at less than 2,400W (2.4kW) then this reel will be suitable, if not then you will need a 13A rated reel instead.
