Drawer runners

Post by MJ80 » Fri Aug 16, 2019 2:34 pm

Anyone using Hettich Quattro 4d runners? What are they like compared to the Grass Dynapro? I have used them before but years ago before the 4d adjusters, have they got better?

I generally use dynapro but tried some quadro 4d ones and the clips and the release mechanism felt much more positive than the grass, to the point once i use up what I have i'll probably switch to using them.

Thanks for that, I'll give them a go, the price here is really competitive against the Grass ones.

Have you tried Wurth for Grass draw runners ? Wurth bought Grass years ago .

I can't use wurth here because I'm not registered as a company. I have to go and beg to buy boxes of packers paying cash. Properly insane.
Same goes for Hafele, there is a big warehouse about 30k from me, but I can't have an account here. So I order it on my UK account and get it shipped back over. Insane or what.

In my experience, unless these companies insist you set up an account, full audit etc...and I have yet to come across one that does....then simply make up the name of a company.

If only it was that simple here, you need to be registered on the official roll of hand workers and or have a firm uses the products with a unique tax ID code.
It is insane, but that will change when I register down the line. In the meantime I'm really happy with the prices on the Quattro runners.

Same here in Spain, if your official paper work is not correct you can't get accounts.
I just bought a bunch of Grass runners from Wurth and yep an excellent price.
