Fuel hose issue
26 Nov 2013
By ark1tek
, Surrey
"Lightweight, easy to use and very easy to start.
Changed the metal blade for a generic line trimmer head (needs correct fitting and rotation)
However, just over 1 year of occasional use it would start and cut out after a few seconds. Turned out the fuel hose had split and perished, an internet search revealed this to be a common fault with this machine. Easy to fit a new length of 3mm fuel hose, but it shouldnt have been necessary.

Hitachi CG22EA Bush Cutter

"I purchased this in the "sale item for today" and I am delighted with its performance. Starts easily and since I replaced the single blade with a Grass Gator head it has been the buy of the year for me."

Great value at £99
19 Sep 2011
By Jonnybecks
, StrouD
"I would not recommend buying a Cheap brand with a petrol engine as from experience something breaks after a year or two and you then chuck away. So this hitachi looked very good value at 99. Started first time and ran well. Seems well made, instructions not very good, pleased with it and think it was a bargain.
One slight down side is I found I accident,y caught the off button a few times as it's near the handle.

"really good value brush cutter, but no line trimmer at all available any more on screwfix site which is a shame. Machine itself is easy to start, light and quite powerful."

Hitachi CG22EA(SLP) 21.1cc

By Cornwall2
, Cornwall, United Kin
"Incredibly fast free delivery. Excellent value. Assembly instructions a bit of a puzzle but not too bad. Brush cutter works brilliantly. I did not want a strimmer so spool compatibility was no problem for me. Glad a bought it."

Great value - buy one!
19 Aug 2011
By Kookie
, Farnham
"Excellent build quality and value for money. Buy one whilst they are on offer.
I also bought the strimmer head Screwfix recommends (item 80406) which is the self feed tap&go type. This fits perfectly and works like a dream so either 'Disappointed' must just have been unlucky, or Screwfix have now sorted the problem he experienced."

"Good well made product. Starts easily, hot or cold, with minimal effort.
Strimmer heads from Grass Gator contain the correct fitting and work well to make a versatile machine.

Quality Brushcutter Bargain
19 Sep 2011
By gardener45
, Caerphilly
"Excellent value, performs well on allotment which has become overgrown. Bought while on offer so was a real bargain. The downside was that the strimmer head had to be purchased separately and Screwfix no longer stock that head. I've not had the brushcutter long enough to really assess reliability."

Disappointed
2 May 2011
By OldFogey
, Maldon
"The brush cutter apeared to be very well made and excellent value for money BUT:
The strimmer head that was meant to go with it didn't fit - it had a M8 RH thread whilst the brushcutter had a M10 LH thread!. The local Screwfix branch established that the on-line catalogue was wrong and there were no strimmer heads available to fit the brush cutter. I had to return the item as I needed both functions. Pity!
