Despite previous reviews saying that the handle was weak, I purchased the 10" x 10" Tamper to compact soft soil that had been dug over and rotavated prior to laying turf.
The Tamper gave great results, compacting the soil well but after a few minutes I noticed hairline crack's appearing at the bottom of the handle shaft. By the time I had completed 2 mÂ², the cracks had become far worse and I stopped before the head parted company with the shaft.
After less then two hours of buying the tool, I have returned it to screw fix and had a refund (their customer service is excellent).
I don't feel that this tool is fit for the purpose that it's designed for and would not recommend it, unless the handle design is changed for something more robust.

Does what it needs to and no complaints from me. Tamps hardcore well enough, I used it for a patio sub base.
