MOVING heavy or bulky DIY tools and materials, or large appliances, is tricky, especially if access is poor, but the great-value 3-in-1 Hand Truck (£69.99, product code 27108, www.screwfix.com) makes it much easier.
Depending on what you’re carrying, you can use it as a vertical sack truck, an angled sack truck or a flat trolley, and it’s easy to switch between them.
The truck can hold up to 200kg and although it’s made of sturdy metal, it’s also lightweight – the big wheels are easy to manoeuvre.
If you’re doing up your home and garden, the Hand Truck is one piece of kit you won’t want to manage without. STAINING floorboards a dark colour looks stunning and is a great way to disguise mismatched boards that have been patched in.
Ronseal DiamondHard Floor Varnish in Satin Walnut (£42.98 for 2.5ltr, B&Q), is a sophisticated dark stain that suits all styles of home – the more coats you do, the richer and better the colour becomes.
It’s nice to use and dries really quickly, so you can recoat in no time.
As well as being a lovely colour, it’s designed to protect against knocks, spills and scuffs and is Ronseal’s toughest varnish. When it comes to floors, you need a varnish like this that looks great and wears well long term.
