"Having reviewed this machine against other similar products and also read other reviews I purchased the vac and having used it I am impressed with its suction power and the build quality plus the 2 Year Manufacturer's Guarantee."
"this is a great cheap item and value for money,I have used this to clean the bottom of our 15" deep pond which the pump will not pump out, I normally hire one but for the price of this it is great value for money and has saved us hiring.The suction is strong and seems to cope with a small amount of water to a few inches, the wheels are handy so no carrying,all in all, not a rolls royce but the next best thing for the money"
"Purchased this for all the diy jobs and the garage. Socket feature is especially useful to keep the good lady happy, me not making mess whilst drilling. Only comment is that wide head is not so good on carpets. Otherwise does what it says on the tin!"
"Bought to replace an Earlex machine that gave up the ghost after a good number of years. Yes it needs a bit of assembly but its not rocket science. You will get a static shock from the body, first one was a surprise, used to it now! The supplied hose is rubbish and as has been mentioned, will kink and will fold flat under vaccuum if you stand on it - don't stand on it! I had kept the Earlex hose and this fitted straight on. The power take off is good and useful, the suction is tremendous, I tend to use the cartridge filter for all bar wet work when I switch to the sponge element. An added bonus is the ability to pop the hose on the outlet and blow air (nicely warmed after a few minutes) to dry my motorbike after washing - worth the purchase price for that feature alone!!"
"Bought this to keep new build house tidy as sweeping was just shifting dust. This picks up everything from plaster dust to the tillers cuttings. Simply put if it fits in the pipe it will suck it up. Builders dream. If I could change one thing that would be the hose which is thin and buckles if twisted. Haven't tried it wet but have no doubt it will be great. The builders actually fight over it and build is super tidy and dust free. Expect a bit of noise given the power. The bags are huge and cheap."
"Easy to put together, with adjustable spanner and flat blade screwdriver. The accessories are OK, but to be honest its all cheap plastic. Vacuum works wells so far with plenty of suction and is doing the job. Would have preferred not to have fixed wheels as thiss does impact manoeuvrability. Two things are a question to Screwfix. (1) says there is a 'gulper nozzle' accessory in description but I cant find it in the pack just the other 4 as described, (2) the lid with motor rests on the top of the stainless steel waste container, but even when clamped in place, it is loose. I expected to see a rubber seal as this is part of the vacuum system, and I am concerned it may leak air in and reduce the suction If you want to pick up fine dust then use a bag and the cartridge filter as the foam sleeve is a waste of space , Overall to date satisfied for the performance vs the cost"
"i bought the 40L version of this vac to use as a dedicated extractor for a 1600w miter saw as it has a power take off switch rated for such. Unfortunately the power take off switch malfunctioned and eventually stopped working after a week [not an extensive work load]. The unit dis concertedly started to switch itself on! i eventually had a replacement which again showed a fault on the power take off switch after a few days, so i reckon that the switches used are at their absolute limit at 1600w as 1200w tools work fine. i've kept the second unit, figuring i could spend my life sending this vac back and fore for no good purpose. All that being said, for a cheep and cheerful extractor it works a treat, the 1400w motor does a really good job removing swarf and dust. It is easy to empty and move about if needed. AND it comes with a really handy stepped tool adapter! [nice touch] Would i recommend this unit? yes, but be aware that at 1600w the switch may play games."
"Really good vacuum, great price, tools are a little low quality, hose is not the best, the tool storage rack seems a good idea but could have been positioned in a better place away from the handle, the front wheels disintegrated before the first bag was emptied and the back wheels splay, the wheels really aren't anywhere near up to the job, easily solved by mounting on a wheeled dolly, oh, and the switch is really difficult to operate as the dust cover over it is made from too stiff plastic, all that said, its the best value for money out there and does its job well once the niggles are sorted, I would buy another if I needed to."
"bought this for cleaning my rental car fleet, like the steel body constrution, large handle and wheels. it does the job well , but the two stage switch is NOT for two stage suction, the second stage is to control another item that you can plug into the top of the titan and the one on/off switch then controls two items, ie a motorised brush head. but the worst park is the flimsy vacuum hose , it is way below quality , i in fact changed it for a better quality one from an old Dyson."
"After a very speedy delivery to my local store I was a little surprised at the amount of assembly work to be done. As a retired Engineer I was able to work it all out but someone less practically minded may have struggled, The instructions for inserting the wheels didn't match the reality. The booklet says they are marked A & B but there is no identification on either the wheels or the underside of the base. I had to use the picture to confirm which side the large wheels went and which the casters. The hose is very stiff and blocks readily with just dry leaves, a bit short too. Not sure the 32mm size is good enough for outdoor work. Not sure even wood shavings wouldn't cause a blockage with the way the hose connects to the fittings. Powerful though I have to give it that and not too noisy either."
"I bought the TTB431VAC for cleaning up after my DIY, cleaning outside and cleaning the pond. It has excelled at every task.
From an operational perspective, when cleaning dust or using as a dust extractor, you will find the plastic parts will statically charge and with the metal body being insulated from ground by plastic wheels, you will get a static shock when touching (grounding) metal parts.
From a spares perspective. I can find no stockist or supplier on the WWW of any spares other than the few that Screwfix keep."
"new today so can't really comment on reliability bad points first cheap inflexible cable no outlet deflector meaning you get a face full of air if you stand in the wrong location, my old cheaper vacuum had one that deflected the out flow down to the floor,thus not freezing you! surely this can't be right? instructions for assembly and use very small and very poor, cleaner comes with two filter types but no clear instruction for use. normal hoover flat ended attachment has no brushes, which means when hoovering the floor it more or less sticks to the floor. plus side power seems to be ok (at the moment)"
