About Us

Although Solent Tools Ltd started trading in 2007, directors and employees have experience over the last 40 years in the power tool and garden machinery industry which means that Solent Tools does not just sell spare parts, we are also able to give help, technical information and advise with the parts and how your machine works.

Our main product focus is spare parts and accessories for most brands of power tools and garden machinery (both petrol and electric). We have direct accounts with the main brands such as Black and Decker, Bosch, DeWalt, Draper, Flymo, Homelite, Makita, Mountfield And Ryobi as well as providing some spares for the brands that have limited or no parts available. We also specialise in carbon brushes and drive belts and are able to supply a wide range of these for an even wider range of machinery and motors.

We are based in Southampton and hold most of our stock in our store, we post everything out worldwide but if you prefer you can come in and collect the product you require. If you are unsure of what part your tool needs we are able to advise by email and over the phone, if you bring your tool in we can look at it, identify the correct part and even repair it for you.

Even in these days of cheap power tools it is still worth keeping a familiar machine. When you include the time and travelling costs to find a replacement machine, replacing a simple part such as a pair of carbon brushes makes economic sense. Last year Solent Tools saved over 4000 machines going to land fill by supplying spare parts that manufacturers do not want to supply.

Specialist power tools are now affordable and are now used for DIY. This brings its own problems with brands such as Challenge, Erbauer, Gardenline, JCB, MacAllister, Performance Power, Powerbase, Power Devil, Qualcast And Titan supplying a very limited amount of spare parts. That’s where Solent Tools lead the UK in sourcing and supplying compatible spare parts for these brands. Parts that are economically and financially worth while replacing such as Carbon Brushes, Drive Belts, Garden Vac Bags, Blades, Switches, Chucks, Spools are the parts we specialise in and to an equal or higher standard of the original part. On a practical and financial level we are unable to supply parts such as Batteries, Chargers, Motors, Armatures, Field Coils and Gearing.

Solent Tools are also stockists of most of the big brands such as AEG, Black & Decker, Bosch, DeWalt, Flymo, Hitachi, Makita, Mountfield, Ryobi, Skil, Stanley. We do not list every part that we can get so if there is a specific part you require that is not on the website please get in contact with us as we should still be able to help.

As well as general spare parts and accessories for most brands of power tools Solent Tools also specialises in carbon brushes. We stock thousands of different types and styles of brush for both AC and DC motors and if we do not have the correct brushes on the shelf we can get almost any brush made with a minimum order quantity of 2 brushes and large discounts on large quantity orders. We also specialise in drive belts and are able to find belts that other companies cannot.
