Titan TTB282GRD 5" Angle Grinder 230V
Compact Grinder poor reliabili
Used for renovating a house.
It's small but solid frame means this grinder can get into spaces larger grinders can't reach. Yet still has decent power and hi revs.
However it died after only 6 months while cutting soft brick of all things.
Additionally a lack of stock at Screwfix meant I couldn't get a replacement and Titan doesn't service faulty goods.
All in all a poor experience, (an exception to Screwfix's generally excellent service

After using this just a couple of times the locking mechanism on the on / off switch developed a fault. I had to get used to the knack of switching it off again by applying pressure to the switch and trying to persuade it to turn off. After 3 months of owning this it stopped turning off altogether. I have now resorted to pulling the plug out whenever I need to stop it - not good when using the grinder while on a ladder, away from the plug socket. I'll be returning this today.

2 out of 2 faulty
The first one wouldn't switch off straight out of the box. Took it back and saw another being returned for same fault.
My second one has now developed same fault after not a lot of use. Won't be getting a third one.

I have had 4 of these now, all 4 have broken down with a faulty switch within a couple of weeks. Nice design and performance but serious reliability issues.
