Titan TTB427GTM 45cm 400W Extendable Pole Electric Hedge Trimmer 230V
Pros: Easy to adjust cutting angle. Good long reach. Simple to operate. No ladder needed. Very good value indeed at Â£79.99
Cons : Hard work to use. Will not cope with thickish bramble stems. No captive attachment for essential Allen key. Flimsiest blade protector I have ever seen. Awkward to store.
The best thing is that it cut parts of my tall wide rural natural hedge that other machines could not reach. However, as a 70 year old, I could soon feel the strain on untrained muscles, so will ration myself to very short duration cuts. Still well worth the effort. and the reasonable price.

TITAN POLE HEDGE TRIMER
A very useful item for reaching tall hedgerows. Easily assembled and a good start trigger makes it easy enough to operate. Personally I found it a bit heavy and my arms/shoulders would get tired and would need a rest every so often. The pole length adjustment is easy as is the cutting head angle. Too soon to give a high mark for reliability. For the money you will be pushed to find an equal to this tool - would recommend.

too top heavy
I have only just reviewed this after having it 2 years. It is too top heavy for long term use. It's a good tool in theory, but not in practice. I have only used it about six times and it now only has power to cut very very thin branches. So just proves you only get what you pay for. I wouldn't recommend this item,

It only lasted a few hours
I got a day's work out of it, and then it stopped working completely, for no obvious reason. It's probably quite a good buy if you only have a tiny hedge, or just one or two bushes to cut once a year, but it is not suitable for a large hedge. Screwfix refunded the money.
