The majority of all model numbers will begin with a few letters followed by some numbers and sometimes more letters, sometimes tools can have an SKU or ART number which we use if no other model number is on the tool. Most model numbers are found on an information plate or sticker and often it will not say the words ‘model number’ but there will be a code near the brand name at the top, this sticker will have other information on it which will also display the watts & volts of the motor or the cc & power of the engine. This sticker is usually on the outer body of the tool, it will not be inside the tool or on the motor/ engine. Below are a few examples and hints of model numbers from a few brands, if you really cannot find your model number then take a few images of all the labels you can find on your tool and email them to us, we may be able to find it for you.
If you have found your model number but cannot find your model on our site then try taking out any spaces or symbols such as . - / or try typing in the first few letters and see if it recognises it, alternatively you can click onto your brand of tool and scroll through the model numbers to give yourself an idea as S and 5, B and 8 & I (i), l (L) and 1 can all look very similar in different fonts. If you still cannot find your model number on our site we may not have parts listed for it, but we may still be able to help so please get in contact with us.
