I have had about four of these, if they last more than a couple of months you are doing well!
timber splits and winding mec. breaks
Bought this umbrella about 6 weeks and now the wind up mechanism is broken nearly broke my wrist. Absolute waste of money.Worked well at the beginning but now it won't stay up. You don't get bargains anymore you just get cheap rubbish sold at cheap price marketed as a bargain. I will be speaking to briscoes! Not impressed at all.
Haven't used it yet but it looks sturdy enough for the price, $59, and unless something goes wrong it should fit it's purpose well.
Perfect for what I need. Replacing expensive cantilever type. Nice thick post. Wind up works beautifully. Fabric thinner than previous but it is what it is for $52 on special. Brilliant.
Umbrella seems to have a sturdy pole with wind up handle. Haven't used it yet but should fulfill it's purpose. It was described as dark green which is not accurate. It's quite a light green.
Bought in the sale and it seemed to be of sturdy construction. However, the winding handle broke after only 3-4 uses. We had to untie the cord to get it down. I returned it for a refund
Used it for about a week. Was thinking it seemed good but then there was a gust of wind and it didnt so much break as explode sending pieces of wood flying. Is make from very brittle light weight wood. Not recommended.
