$2 shop quality
I have a Hills clothesline which is over 6 years old and a year ago decided to give it a fresh coat of paint and replace the cord, which by the way was still in pretty good shape. I found Daytek 30m replacement clothesline cord which I happily bought because it said it was an Australian product. Now only a year has passed and the line is in tatters - the plastic coating has broken in paces and the white string inside is all that's holding the clothes, wonder for how long. I would have expected this line to last a few years.
Australian made and indispensable
I've had my Daytek Australian made wheelbarrow for over 40 years and used it for everything from moving poo and dirt to mixing concrete.
It has never let me down and is still going strong. I reckon it will see me out.
Can't install strings
I've installed the fold down clothesline and need to string it but the locking caps do not fit. The line seems to either be too thick or the locking caps are not big enough. Nothing seems to work. After concreting the clothesline in it now seems completely useless.
Daytek three tier Airer
Airer is in good condition but two of the rolling casters to the base have broken (cracked plastic) almost in conjunction making it unusable.
daytek 3 tier clothes airer 30m wheels faulty
Airer is good quality unfortunately the 2 inner wheels don't screw into the thread so I had to return it to bunnings. I wanted to swap it for another one because if the wheels would work I'd keep it, unfortunately after assembling another one in store I encountered the same issue with the wheels so ended up refunding it.
The holders of the clothes with the bolts through have rusted, so I cannot open to replace my clothes line, I don't like this set up at all. Sent an email a week ago, no one has answered my query.
Daytek Twin Fold Down Clothesline MK2
Within months of installation, the plastic line holders started coming away from the metal frame as some of the the rivets were not correctly installed, then over the next few months the plastic line holders kept breaking and needed replacing.
I returned it to Bunnings and bought a different brand of clothesline, which meant another day of installation and new holes in the concrete.
Broken out of box. Design and build quality pretty average for these days. Should have looked at the reviews first then might have saved myself some pain. Disappointed.
Terrible product "Made in Australia"
Bought a daytek clothesline last week.I bought it bec it said made in "Australia".
Its flimsy,it bends,the line is very thin,wheels dont move.
Very light for what it should be for an outdoor product.
Not happy.I want to return it Buy a strong quality one.
It was the most expensive and I thought will be the best but the worst one when I actually used it.
Once again how can you make a line that bends??
Don’t waste your money would rate nothing if I could
Brought a new clothes line 1.5years ago and the metal parts for wire to attach have bent and the whole clothesline out of shape. Total waste of money choose a different brand absolute crap
Poor quality and design
We purchased a new Daytek rotary clothes hoist around 7 years ago and it has not stood the test of time. Within a few years one of the lines broke, and most of the plastic casing on the lines has cracked, exposing the fibre cord within, meaning these will soon break also. Further, the tabs on the centre hub from which the arms extend have snapped off resulting in the hoist collapsing when it has even a moderate load on it. We’ve had to wire it up so it stays up! We had a Hills brand collapsible hoist at our old house which was still going ok af...ter 15 years. Daytek one looks similar but unfortunately the materials and design are inferior. We have not been rough with it and have only ‘gently’ folded it down a couple of times. Will not buy Daytek again.
Why is the cable not rolled round so it is easy to unroll without tangling it must be cheaper because it is not easy to unroll without tangling in the form it is supplied
Daytek Pearl Astroid Laundry Trolley
A good looking, well built product for short people. If you are over 165 cm tall you will find this difficult to wheel because your arms will be fully extended and you'll be slightly leaning forward to reach the handle. As usual a large laundry basket has to sit across the trolley. I prefer the basket to fit within the trolley but this makes it impossible to find a place for your hands on the handle. I like that I can fold it for storage but I'm otherwise disappointed with its size and for the price it could be larger for tall people.
16 Meters Clothesline cord.
Hi, I recently purchased two clothesline cords, one was only a short length which wasn’t too much of a drama unraveling to restring a small clothesline but the 16 Metre one was a total pain to unravel to put onto clothesline. It doesn’t unravel in a orderly manner. You have to basically sit down and carefully undo the cord so as not to get a huge bunch of knots. I’ve had this issue 3 other times over the years and I can’t understand why the cord couldn’t be wound onto something that was easy to unwind. I’m not stupid at doing such projects but thank God I wasn’t paying someone to replace the clothesline cord. Hopefully by the time I have to replace the clothesline cord it has an easy way of unwinding cord.
Daytek Folding Clothesline
We purchased three of these folding clothelines from Bunnings and they have required restringing within 12 months which is poor. Durability and strength are not available any more and I had the same issue with a laundry trolley. Time to test the products over longevity as they do not last the mile!
