Makro have a Kinzo make @ 99 + VAT on offer at the moment - if you have or
can blag a trade card.

You'd have to be pretty incompetent not to be able to blag a trade card.

I went into a Makro once. It smelled of rotting meat and other
groceries. I went out again and threw the trade card away.

Costco is a bit better. At least that doesn't smell.

Is this the sideways tilting type, which was also on offer at Aldi and
sold by Machine Mart?

I had a quick look a this type, and the frame tubes seemed a bit thin
and may not last too long under use. Have any users got any comments?

It does not seem as study as the UK made Belle ones, and I presume that
these are just cheaply made in china.

Call it brand snobbery if you like, but I have yet to see anything with
a Kinzo badge that is not pretty nasty....

(even screwfix had to resort to giving away kinzo angle grinders as a
free gift when you ordered cutting discs as a way to stop the things
coming back!)
