Titan TTL531HDC 55cm 26cc 1hp Petrol Hedge Trimmer
Read the intructions !
Having read the previous reviews I decided that this trimmer looked just the job for my 80 foot hedge.
Having read the caution in the other reviews I read the instructions before starting. Following the card and the detailed instructions for cold start it started first time.
The rotating handle means a comfortable grip for all angles of cutting.
First cut of the year, and it did cut the thicker twigs.
Easy to handle and the hedge was neatly cut in record time.
Can't rate reliability as 5 stars as I have so far only used it once, but am very pleased with my choice.

I've got about 30 metres of hawthorn and holly hedge, about 3 m high. I hate cutting it. It's not my bag, but it has to be done.
I've always use an electric hedge trimmer, but since it packed up I ummed and ahhed about what to get next. Petrol? Electric? I liked the electric one, but I hated untangling the cord. I sort of fancied a petrol one, but I had no clue about what 2-stroke fuel was.
Long story short I opted for this Titan petrol trimmer and at the same time bought the 2-stroke oil and a mixing bottle from Screwfix. It's as easy as can be to mix the oil with some unleaded petrol. And if you're worried about that, then don't be. If I can do it, then you can.
As for cutting, yeah it got a bit heavy after a while, but the pay off was that it cut the hedge with ease. No messing about, and I'm delighted with it.

This hedge trimmer is good value for money. At the cheaper end of the scale, we didn't expect much and were pleasantly surprised at the ease of use.
Only down side is that it is a little heavy for repetitive movements for long periods.

Great piece of kit
I purchased this machine to replace a Sherwood multi 5 in one. Having tried various machines to cut a rather long Beech edge, I finally decided that I needed a dedicated hedge trimmer and this one seemed like a good deal. I ordered on line for collection at six o'clock at night and five minutes later I got a text to say it was ready for collection. That really impressed me, had the machine at home within forty minutes of ordering it. The machine came out of the box ready to go once I had mixed some fuel. For the price it is a real bargain easy to start reasonably light for a petrol machine and cut through the hedge with ease. The ease with which you can change the handle position is a real bonus. Having used it only once I can only say that first impressions are that it is a great machine at a good price and the service from Screwfix was fantastic, Thank you
