How to select Outdoor Power Products

1. Inspect the item you are about to buy. Is it a throwaway or can it be repaired if it breaks?
2. Go online to see if a service manual can be downloaded for FREE. Owners manuals are not the same as service manuals. Some Manufactures charge ridicules prices for their shop/service manuals.
3. What do the online product reviews say about this product. Read all the Pro's and Con's.
4. Where is the nearest service center for this product?
5. Are parts readily accessible for the DIY'er?
6. Don't buy from the first source you find on the internet. Check the price and warranty on several sites because some sites have a cheaper price but shipping is higher, making the overall price higher.
7. Check out Seller reviews before buying on eBay to verify it is a legitimate seller. Be cautious of sellers based in China. Look for where seller is based and estimated delivery time. Long delivery times sometimes indicate overseas sellers, even if they are listed as in the US.
8. Does the product use metric or SAE fasteners.

I need a new door latch and upper latch micro switch. Where can I get these? Thanks


try online, but the cost will be prohibitive, cheaper to buy a new 1, you can get an all singing and dancing 1 from supermarket for less than 40, we are in a throwaway world now, cost of repairs out weighs replacement, the labour alone is 75 an hr.

I need replacement brushes for a B & D 7750 4.5" grinder and can't find a source. Any ideas? Thanks.


This is considered a throwaway tool when any internal parts break or wear out, including the brushes. It's usually cheaper to buy a new one as opposed to repairing one. If it's still within the warranty period, B&D will replace it or prorate the value depending on how long you've had it. The only replacement parts available for this grinder are the side handle, blade guard, the inner and outer flanges and spanner wrench.
