"I have a small patch of grass and a stepping stone path with grass between the stones on a roof garden. Using a conventional mower wasn't going to work so I purchased this and it does the job brilliantly. Managed to get through my foot high grass with minimum effort.
The plant guard is a bit pointless as it doesn't really work but with a little care this isn't an issue.

Good Product Sturdy and Rugged
19 May 2014
By SRH78
, Dorset
"After some neglect in the garden due to building works, the grass had become waist high tufts. Our orange coloured strimmer was just not up to the Job and died after just 3 minutes.
Desperate to still get the job done over the weekend and trusting in the usual good service from Screw Fix, we were armed with this Titan Strimmer before lunch.
Even with the very long grass, The Titan Strimmer made short work of the job, it was comfortable to use and not too heavy ( it feels sturdy) its was easy to adjust with a moveable Gripper handle and an extendible neck.
One of the best features is an auto feed, so you don't have to mess about with the strimmer wire when it breaks, just power on and it extents to the correct length to keep on going.
Overall good Buy, Good Price, Good quality and as ever Good Service from Screw Fix."

trimmer titan ttb586gtm

"Since receiving the above Trimmer I have used it quite extensively and found it functions very well.
One point however is I have tried to obtain a replacement line spool (13d) Model No 14110.
However I could not find it on the Screwfix parts for trimmers page, I find this a bit odd as the Trimmer was sold to me by Screwfix

"Very pleased generally all round only reservation is the line feed. It did jam up after a couple of uses. difficult to un-assemble to un-jam the line. Will see how it goes but otherwise lots of features, powerful and pleased for the price and power rating."

Great Strimmer!
28 May 2014
By Hassefenman

"Well designed, loads of adjustability. It's quite easy to re-thread the cord when needed. It has lots of power, but is not too heavy. I found it cuts through 7-8 mm weed stems with ease."

"Easy to handle, unfortunately the automatic feed doesn't work every time and the strimmer line tends to snap off at the spool. Not keen on the double feed uses twice as much line."

Titan TTB586GTM 600w Grass Tri
21 Jul 2014
By Eccles2

"The trimmer tends to be on the heavy side. The nylon spool didn't last long. Changing from horizontal to vertical cutting is a bit of a pain. Will have to put up with it for quite some time but eventually will change for a more "user friendly" trimmer"

Solid but frustrating
1 Jul 2014

"Good points: Robust and well constructed
Bad points: automatic line feed didn't work and manual feed is frustratingly time-consuming often necessitating dismantling the spool. I am hoping a new spool will fix the problem

Disappointed
30 Jun 2014
By KeenOnDIY
, Hoddesdon
"I bought this product as it seemed to have good reviews. I have had at least 3 other strimmers of a different make and they all suffered from problems with the automatic cord feeder.
I have only used this once and the cord jammed almost immediately. I had to fix it about 3 or 4 times in 10 minutes or so. I'm hoping that the cord was not wound properly and am hoping for better performance in the future.

"Thought from ScrewFix this would be a reasonable piece of kit, with the "automatic line feed", however it doesn't seem to work. Which meant a job that should have been relatively short took so much longer having to try and get the line out regularly.
Not particularly impressed.

Pity about the spool
29 May 2014
By diydavid
, Brighton
"Titan note
The instruction manual is long on caution & short on mechanics. Large type for Health & Safety but perfunctory treatment for the product. The manual does not say much that is not self-evident. The spool is the only spare part that it allows the user to replace. It discourages him from inserting new line into an exhausted spool & recommends instead a new, factory wound, spool. This is silly, one cannot go on buying new spools (at about a fiver each) indefinitely but I will buy one extra spool for this would allow quick change should a spool run out during a job. The empty spool can then be recharged at leisure.
I have spent some time trying to discover how the spool works. It can be rewound but removing & replacing the line-retaining collar is tricky, particularly on the first occasion. If the line is damaged in use it is possible to draw out extra line by pressing a release button. This too is tricky. The button has to be pressed & released successively & the line released in stages.
The Titan spool is a bore but so are most strimmer spools. I will live with it & may try some DIY modification. The spool may be a minus but pretty well everything else about the Titan is a plus. It s a good looking well designed tool. Nothing is flimsy & I prefer mains driven equipment to battery dependence. Above all, the Titan does the job easily. I doubt whether any strimmer offers so much power at such a low price."

too heavy
21 May 2014
By NickName42
, oxon
"Decided that this would not be suitable - looks powerful, but very heavy, with bulk of weight at the bottom and I wanted this to be used for largely clearing very steep bank - where I would either be standing at the bottom or the top - and reaching quite high or low.
Will get a cordless one with battery near the handle end - should make for a better balanced machine and also easier to use
Took unused item back to screwfix for no quibble refund

Not Much Good

By solarobservation

"Can't agree with other reviews, I got this to cut the long grass along the edge of my property, After a few mins the trimmer was not cutting and the nylon chord was stuck in the spool, I had to strip it down and rewind the chord, it worked again for a few mins then same thing happened again, I took it back to Screwfix and they gave me a new one, exactly same problem happened again so I took that back also and got a refund, Screwfix service was brilliant. I would only recommend this for trimming the edge of a lawn or similar not for long grass."
