Titan TTL530GBC 43cc Straight Shaft Petrol Brushcutter
First thing you will notice is this strimmer is heavy!
It does come with 2 handles and a support strap to take the weight.
Powerful engine and great value for money.

Does a great job
The brush cutter instructions are not particularly reliable and a little misleading but assembly is quite intuitive. Read the extra sheet as this has a few key details.
The instructions for starting the engine are not particularly accurate. I found that when the engine failed to start after a couple of pulls on the 'cold' setting, swapping the lever to the 'warm' setting worked well. I have since used this approach and the unit starts readily every time.
The cutter itself is very effective and the strong line cuts through most basic vegetation without binding. I managed to clear a large area very quickly. Having only used the unit a few times, I cannot comment on reliability yet.

Good but awful instructions
Fairly well-engineered product but contrary to other reviewers I found the assembly instructions really awful - poor pics to depict what you were doing, items names not clear so you did not always know what part was being referred to and altogether untested on a normal person. And the starting instructions were useless - totally not accurate, causing me to badly flood the engine. I ended up reading up on the web to work out how to do it. And I have a degree and several other petrol driven devices so am not inexperienced in these matters. Will think twice before buying another product like this from Screwfix. The health and safety guidelines were excellent but the rest of the manual appeared to have been written by someone who did not have English as their first language. When I finally got the machine started it performed very well - tough and efficient. Can't comment on reliability because have not has the item long enough, but I expect it will be reliable.

I bought this at the sale price and so far it looks to be a good value piece of kit. Its easy to assemble and ready to use from the box. The build looks OK but my one slight worry is the plastic control handle/grip doesn't look/feel that strong. Engine starts very easily but the tank holds just 0.7l of fuel which it uses quite quickly. I've just been using the bump head spool and pleased with its performance. The bump head looks very robust and changing the line is very easy. It comes pre-loaded with a couple of meters of line so worth buying a large reel of good quality heavy duty 2.4mm line as you'll get far fewer line breakages. Worth also investing in full facevisor as it throws up a lot of stuff.
