Have I just been unlucky?
I bought a Titan petrol hedgetrimmer which stopped after half an hour and subsequently, although it would start when cool, would not run for longer than half an hour before stopping again. I exchanged it for another on the advice of the helpline which was just the same, except that it would not restart when cool. The third one ran for a little longer but still petered out after three quarters of an hour. The helpline adviser suggested that I remove the rubber grommet in the fuel cap and roll it between finger and thumb and then replace it. I did this and presumably it helped to ensure that a vacuum did not occur in the fuel system and it ran for a bit longer but still eventually failed. It would not continue to run even with the fuel cap 'off'! So I gave up and bought a Mountfield. Screwfix have been absolutely amazing in their customer service, exchanging each hedgetrimmer uncomplainingly and efficiently but what has gone wrong? According to the Titan helpline adviser, I have coincidentally bought three faulty machines. Some coincidence! I should point out that I bought a Titan petrol brushcutter/strimmer at the same time and that has proved to be an excellent machine, starting immediately and running perfectly for the past month. Both machines use a 40:1 mix and I have used the same fuel in both so that cannot be the problem. With luck like mine I might as well stop buying a weekly lottery ticket! The Mountfield is working perfectly.

Shockingly Bad Product
Bought the Titan hedge trimmer as the spec looked great and the price is a bargain. Got it started from Cold ok and it cut through the hedge like a hot knife through butter, for about 5 minutes! It then kept cutting out and I couldn't get it started again. Eventually got it going but the same kept happening. Gave up after one afternoon and took it back. Screwfix were excellent and swapped it for another no problems. Seemed to work a bit better until one of the screws holding the handle just fell out so the handle was hanging loose. After finding the screw the bloomin thing wouldn't start again so will take it back and ask for a refund this time!
