You get what you pay for - sort of.
Having used BBT products over 4 or 5 years I'm comfortable recommending them.
With the following caveat.
One does not get German engineering and Japanese build quality on a Chinese budget.
All of the tools I have purchased have been less than 1/4 the price of German/Japanese equivalents yet performed well.
Service from BBT has been acceptable given their online status. And exceptional on the 2 occasions I visited their physical location.
If you're disinclined or unable to service/maintain this type of equipment or need something that reduces fatigue, then go to a specialist store and buy a name brand. This will cost more.
But you knew that right?
Dont Buy A Waste Of Money
i purshased the 5 in 1.2 stroke whipper/pole saw less than 3 months ago i have had nothing but trouble from this useless piece of rubbish.to be able to sell such a product is a disgrace and will never by a BBT product again.from breakages in the shaft system to the hedge trimmer shaft completly snapping inside the motot shaft. A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY
Sour grapes ?????
I have been buying from BBT for 5 years and have found them reliable professional and very helpful with any queries I have had My 5 in 1 has never let me down have recommended them to others and have never heard anything bad keep up the good work BBT
Great tool and great support
I have used this product quite extensively and when anything went wrong BBT came to the rescue even after the warranty period. I am so happy with it that I have recommended it to many of my friends who also bought one. The last problem was with the magneto and once I contacted BBT, they sent me another one which fixed the problem immediately. What outstanding customer service and they didn't chrge me a thing.
innexexpensive and gets through a lot of work
just keep the screws on tight.
A good little machine for a home user
I bought one of the 2 stroke models mainly for the pole saw and occasionally for the whipper snipper. The pole does flex and bounce a bit when you use all the extensions but it does the job. The wipper snipper works good. The only thing i can fault on it was that the metering needle on the carby was glued in place at a lean setting. I managed to melt the glue and file a groove on top of the needle so i could adjust the fuel mixture to make it start and run better. Overall i am happy with it.
It was cheap to buy and does the job
Carby was set a bit lean from new so it was hard to start and would not idle
Do Not Buy Bigger Boyz Toyz BBT 5 in 1 Chainsaw Hedge Trimmer Pole Tool Brush Cutter
I recently purchased this machine, arrived quickly I must say, but the carton was damaged. The Brush Cutter head was impossible to assemble (no screws provided). After buying parts from bunnings, I finally got it started. After 2hrs use, the handle fell off ( i re-attached). The following day, I thought I'd give it another go and set out to trim the garden edges. I attached the edging blade and worked the machine along (cut out twice due to being used on an angle), then to my shock horror, it caught fire! Thank god my wife was near by and quick...ly got the hose. On inspection, it appeared to have a faulty fuel system that leaked onto the exhaust. Now in bin, seller "[name removed]" not interested - Simply dangerous cheap chinese junk - Do not buy! Fast Delivery Poorly made chinese copy that caught fire!
I purchased a BBT 2 stroke 5 in 1 Multi tool some months ago, I was a bit hesitant to purchase a tool that was quite reasonably priced compare to your big brands and you hear all those horror stories about cheap tools from China but this tool is not one of them. I took a trip down to there show room at Albion park rail and there sale team were very helpful and showed me through some of there products they have on display and answered any questions i had. I have now been using this tool for the past few months and love using it every time i get ...it out of the shed, starts every time and has not let me down. I have recently be back to purchase a lawn mower and can't wait to try it out. starts every time and easy to use it weighs 9 kg at 4M long (using the chainsaw attachment) so it can get heavy on your arms but i'm 65
Great Product at a Great Price
I bought the 4 stroke model based on the first review from here, the item arrived quick and was well packed, I thought the corners could of been better supported but it was all there.
There was a small amount of assemble but the instructions where pretty good, I got stuck on fitting the handle, give them a call and they walked me through it no troubles at all, and seemed honestly happy to help (which seems rare these days)
Every attachment worked excellent and the 4 stroke seems to have a lot of power, it has been a couple of months now so I made sure I tested it well before posting this review.
I have since bought from them again and will post another when I have properly tested it out.
Inexpensive, Had a contact number
Nothing so far
Good value product, versatile.
I really only wanted a pole saw but at the price I was happy to buy the 5 in 1 set. I have so far used the pole saw with the two 1 metre extension poles. I was able to cut branches at full extension. The product is not as rigid (it flexes) as products that I have hired from Kennards but it is lighter. It is consequently a little harder to use but I got the job done over two days. The product is similar in quality to goods on sale in Bunnings but cheaper. The store is online but as I live near the warehouse I went and purchased directly (and got...a discount on the internet price. The staff were helpful and I had a good examination of the product before purchase. I found the handle hard to install. The Allan key supplied is poor quality as was the included screwdriver. I used my own tools. The instruction manual is reasonable. The pole saw was loose before first use and purchasers should check this before they try to use! The equipment comes with a 1 year warranty. Given that I would have paid as much as the purchase price just to hire a tool to use it is good value. I have the other attachments to use more regularly. The various tools are reasonably easy to attach and remove. Inexpensive, versatile. Minor assembly of handle was not easy (I'm 60)
Questions & Answers
have a bbt 5in 1 unit been in box for two years finally assembled it . correct fuel correct amount of four stroke oil it ran for approx 3 mins and stopped . got plenty of spark and getting fuel into the carby but will not start . any idea where i could look at
Hi, I purchased the 5 in 1 and have used it twice now. Once as a line trimmer and once as a hedger. The biggest problem I have is that once I have used approx. 1/4 of a tank of petrol (3/4 remaining) the engine keeps cutting out and I am constantly topping it back up. It doesn’t matter the orientation of the unit it just cuts out. Any ideas?
I have just purchased a bbt-att-bc btt brush cutter attachment , I fed the short pieces of line supplied, after a short use it spits out the lines , is there a special method to keeping the lines in? I didn't receive any instruction sheet with my purchase.

Here is a link on how to load these lines. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g_BcAJMkbGk&t=5s
Thanks, The picture when ordering, shows the lines hanging out the same distance from the head on both ends being equal, that is why it spat them out. I will load it, as per the video.
