Titan TTB426GDO 20cm 750W Electric Pole Saw Pruner 230V
Check the oil function.
There seems to be a manufacturing fault on some of these saws concerning the chain oil lubrication. In another persons review they complain about lack oil of lubrication to the chain and another person says it eats the oil very fast.
I bought one of these today and assembled it and filled the oil with proper chainsaw oil, after about 40 minutes of various cutting it was apparent the oil was not coming out as the chain was smoking and bone dry and the oil tank was still full to the brim.
I tried running the device without any cutting as the instructions say "oil will spray from the chain" but it remained bone dry without a trace of oil.
I returned it to screwfix and asked for a replacement and that one was exactly the same.
I must say though the staff in Aintree , Liverpool where brilliantly helpfull and gave a full refund.
I still want one of these as it cuts really well but I'm afraid of buying another lemon but maybe from a different batch they might be OK.
I'll keep my eye on reviews before buying another.

TITAN POLE PRUNER
These are an amazing tool, excellent value. I pruned a large hedgerow with branches up to 6" dia, I worked it hard, and this tool made it easy as pie. It is easy to manage, only becoming a handful as you extend the pole to near full length. It was easy to assemble the chain and bar, simple to adjust the tension. The 2 year warranty makes these even more attractive - I would recommend these to everyone.

Titan pole saw
I bought this the other day jus to try ....I have quality petrol saws ...my first tree pruning with this electric saw was amazing .. Simple to use extends to 3 mtr with ease I put this through its test cutting up to 6 inch without a problem .. I will now use this a lot more and put the noisy petrol ones to shelf .....after a full day using it the only problem I can see is the power lead needs to be at least 6 mtrs .so will take it apart and fit one ,but apart from that well recommend it ,, just to let you know it doesn't come with chain oil and you do need it ,I hope this review helps

Weak link chain
1. Used for about an hour. Cut well, then significant drop off to the point where it barely cut thin twigs due blunt chain.
2. Beware, constantly needs topping up with oil after about 10 to 15 mins use...it drinks it !
3. Heavy but manageable except when fully extended, it becomes cumbersome.
4. The warning instructions are so restrictive that if you followed every clause, you would hardly use it for what you would want to use it for. Its like Titan are covering themselves in every way!
5. I wish screwfix would sell spare chains!
