Titan TTL530GBC 43cc Straight Shaft Petrol Brushcutter
Brought this strimmer to cut through really thick overgrown back garden went through it like a hot knife in butter. did have problems after using it for a hour solid as it wouldn't start back up again!! took it back and screwfix gave me another which works just fine!
the only thing i would suggest to titan is to make it adjustable as if your a smaller person in height like me 5"5 its hard to use the harness and 2 handles to cut as you cant reach them properly!

Value for Money
I cannot fault this machine at the price.
Simple self assembly and operation.
The included Harness was a great bonus and the safety catch on the harness is one of the best I've seen.
Just a little tip for the one or two buyers who have said that it seems a little long and unbalanced. - Where the harness fits to the machine through the small bracket fitted around the shaft of the strimmer. If you loosen the bolt the holds that bracket and slide it along the strimmer shaft you will not only shorten the amount the strimmer sticks out, you will also find the poerfect balance point to suit your needs.
By sliding the small bracket forwards or backwards you can either weight the cutting end or weight the engine end to suit your own personal taste.
The bump feed works perfectly and I am using this strimmer to cut a 2 acre overgrown field, believe me, it is eating it up.
Dont hesitate, buy one before they are out od=f stock, I am considering buying another because it is far superior to my existing Macallister strimmer.

TTL530GBC brush cutter The Beast. Bought this because of the engine size and the savings compared to one with a much smaller engine. got it home and put it together pretty quickly, filled her up and started her up no problem. This is when I decided to call her the beast, she roared into action, at point I hit a problem "far too much vibration" that much you couldn't hold the cutter for more than a few seconds, this was maybe due to me putting it up wrong in my hurry to use it before the rain came, took it apart and started again, much better this time. The harness isn't much use if you have a weight problem, also anyone who has back problems may find it pulls somewhat due to the weight of the cutter. But as the cutter goes it's a great buy and will clear anything in its path.

good bit of kit
" A superb bit of kit at a great price.
Used a maximum of 2 litres fuel to clear two very overgrown allotments using the metal blade. Have since used nylon cord to keep the new growth down as required...and the 'bump' automatic line feed works a treat!
Another big bonus with this machine is that the bottom section (about half-way down the drive shaft) can be easily removed in seconds so that it all fits in the boot of my car.
