I am furious that Trading Standards have allowed the sale of this Product, it constantly every 20 seconds keeps snapping off, but I would not mind that so much, if it actually trimmed the edge of my lawn, all it did was cut into my lawn with lacerations, I WARN ANYONE THINKING OFF BUYING THIS DEVICE TO think again, pay a little extra for one, it will work out much cheaper in the end, I would not spit on Gardenline products, they are a con, and I was taken for a mug! Where ever I can I am… Read Full Review

I read and agreed with the reviews so I contacted Garden Line 'firstname.lastname@example.org' and the Dutch manufactures
They sent me free belts to replace the broken ones I purchased.
Their durability is yet to be tested but I got GOOD SERVICE.

Gardenline GVM 600; the biggest load of junk I've ever bought. Belt snapped within an hour of first using it. Anyway, found a company called Motion Industries, based in Lancashire, who supplied me two replacement belts for £16, inc P+P. I had the Gardenline working again within two days :-). The belts must be better quality as I've used it for hours now without a problem… Read Full Review

I would agree with most people does seem the belt is a bit suspect to say the least, I did however find a company called Bearing Boys who sell spare ones for £2.50 each so not a big outlay and at this cost you can afford to go through a couple… Read Full Review

Like all the rest my GVM 600 broke a belt and although the machine appears to be well constructed it has an obvious week link, the belt. We need a more substantial belt… Read Full Review

I was delighted whien my neighbour offered me a lend of her scarifier machine....a Gardenline GVM 600.......1 1/2 hr later it is broken! Now I'm looking for a replacement part for her as a token gesture...but struggling a little.
Note to self, dont borrow other peoples stuff. If they are rubbish quality and brake with you, you look like an egit!
Dont buy one of these! (and please dont lend them to unsuspecting friends either)… Read Full Review

I bought two Gardenline GVM-600 Scarifiers (one as a present for my brother--we no longer speak!!!). Each broke a belt after 15 mins. Reading one of the reviews in this site I contacted a company on 02380578057 who were very helpful and I have now bought 4 replacement belts for £22--delivery tomorrow. Despite usually being an Aldi "fan" I found them particularly unhelpful regarding this problem… Read Full Review

I've had the same broken belt problem with my GVM-600 scarifier. Have just spoken to a Mail order supplier on: 023 8057 8057 who was very helpful and is supplying me with a pack of 2 replacement belts for £12.99 inc p&p. She tells me that these new belts will be with me tomorrow morning and are much stronger (she would wouldn't she....?) than the original Chinese version. Time will tell.....!! This company also supplies the spring loaded tines… Read Full Review

as the rest say ,the belt lasts if you are lucky about 4-5 hours.
The Gardenline (Aldi) GVM-600 is a waste of money
