    As long as this is the new model with similar design to the new 41 and 56,then there's not a lot of use out there yet, so feedback limited. Would say no if old model. However I do think Hayter have responded well with the new series and we're very happy with the 41 pro.

    Have just picked up a used Weibang 48 bbc from here. We also have non bbc Weibang 48 and 56. So will be interesting to compare dewey pickup over the next few weeks.

  • Hi Craig. I used that Weibang for the last two and a half years. I was really happy with it overall. The wet collection was good, but not absolutely fantastic. The blade on the BBC version isn't as high lift which does reduce it's collection capability a bit. Very heavy though! I've not used the new Hayter 48 but have used the new 41 and really enjoyed it so far. Wet collection pretty similar i'd say. Good but could be a bit better so I would guess the 48 is similar. Hope that's of some help. All the best.

  • Craig, I have all the new hayter pros, the 41 pro bags the best out of all of them, then the 56 IN THE WET THIS IS, soaking wet the 48 pro is a bit gutless and reckon weibang made the right decision to put a kwaki engine on, however for any other use the hayter 48 pro is fantastic. They spent ages designing blade, deck, bag etc etc. I have also seen a few cases of weibang roller shaft snapping in half on both their 48 pro and 56 pro versions. Another note the hayter bbc is so easy to engage where the weibang one is horrible, not smooth or sensible or good atall. Hope that helps.
