Titan TTL531HDC 55cm 26cc 1hp Petrol Hedge Trimmer
Not the best IMHO
Having read all the other reviews on this product, I didn't have any hesitation in buying this hedge trimmer.
Having read 'most' of the manual, mixed the correct fuel/petrol fluid the trimmer started fine and I got to work on my hedge. I stopped the product a number of times and each time I noticed it took longer to get it restarted. Eventually it would not restart and all. It actually stopped whilst in idle mode without it even being used.
On calling the Titan helpdesk the following day, I was immediately asked how old my petrol was that I'd used. I replied it was at least 3 months old and it was the same fuel used for my petrol mower. He said that this was more than likely the cause of the poor starting. He actual words were something like "It's very fussy about the fuel" and "That is more than likely what is causing your problems". Following this, I looked a little more closely at the manual. It seems that each time you used the trimmer you need to empty the fuel tank and buy fresh fuel if not using it for the next 30 days.
Whilst this may suit certain people, I only use the hedge trimmer about 3 times per year. The thought of having to empty it after each use and buy fresh fuel every time simply isn't ideal in my opinion, so I will be returning it to Screwfix, as I don't believe this is made clear in the product description.

good value hedge trimmer
I have just used the hedge trimmer for the first time and it worked perfectly,starting was very easy and it is very comfortable to use because ot the soft grip handles,it's not too heavy so over all a good value for money tool.

Titan hedge trimmer
great value for money and very light to use all day and good on fuel and some petrol items seem to drink fuel but this is very good. Only down side with mine is I followed the steps to start it out of the box but took about 20 min to get it going
