Titan TTL531HDC 55cm 26cc 1hp Petrol Hedge Trimmer
Poor quality machine
After reading all the reviews I decided to purchase this item. The first one ran for ten minutes then refused all attempts at a restart.
Screwfix were excellent and swopped it with no bother. I had read on several forums that this particular model is very fussy with its fuel. So I purchased new fuel and made up a new two-stroke mix. This one ran for about 30 mins then started to cut out. At first it would restart, then gradually starting became harder and eventually it failed altogether. The fuel cannot be the problem as my Strimmer that I've had for several years starts with no problem. I think that the old adage is very true:YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. Sorry Srewfix as normally your products are fine, you've certainly dropped the ball with this product.

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.
