Huge saving usually costs around £150. Do not confuse this with small cheap electric trimmers, this is longer bladed and thicker cut than most petrol engined ones can manage, and will chop through big hedges and shrubs with ease, and even cuts small branches.

good saving indeed

Can't get cheaper than £150 anywhere else, so not sure why cold?

I don't get why it's so expensive. If it was petrol driven I could understand it.

Because Titan make a better product for Screwfix which costs between 35 and 50 quid, corded or cordless.
This does seem expensive for what it is.

Wrong. That product is nowhere near the spec of this. Like I said in the description "Do not confuse with..."

But I don't know why I bother, the negative score demonstrates that this site is obviously overrun by clueless fools that cannot recognize a genuine saving, so I doubt I will waste my time contributing again in future.

If you dislike the site that much, it is voluntary. It's an opinion based site; you expressed an opinion, others expressed an opinion. If you don't like those opinions or see it fit to slander those opinions, then you're on the wrong website. Kindly don't bother.

I replaced an ancient unbranded hedge trimmer with the Titan Corded version to deal with my 30 year established Leylandii hedge which runs 15 metres alongside my drive and is now approaching 3 metres tall at the highest point (sloped drive).
My opinion is that the Titan is flawless and it goes straight through any thick branch it hits like it's butter and I can do the entire hedge in about 45 minutes, with very little need to go over again.
Do not confuse spec with performance - read the reviews of the Titan, very good scores, very little negative feedback - I'd value that more than spec.

Yes the Bosch you posted does read better on the specs, but you pay a fairly hefty premium for that - almost three times the cost of the Titan, and that's when it's on offer. At the end of the day, you're offering a hedge trimmer at £97.99; you questionned why it was cold; the reason is that there are hedge trimmers with equal or better performance (not spec) for £34.99 or thereabouts. Which means why would you pay an additional £63 - that's your cold rating in a nutshell.

Wrong again. I didnt express an opinion, I expressed facts, facts such as the camel graph, that speak for themselves. 'Which' dont give expensive items a best buy rating without checking the facts either and that was at the original price.

Another fact, Leylandii is a particularly easy hedge plant to cut, the wood is rather soft, and it isnt prickly, so I wouldn't call that much of a test. Try a gnarly old Hawthorn hedge with similar tools and I dont think you would report back that the longer more powerful blade didnt help.

Just because your Titan is perfectly adequate for the fairly undemanding job you ask of it doesn't make it "equal or better performance". Thats like saying a Fiesta is the same performance as a Ferrari just because they both go the same speed when stuck in traffic. And then using that as a reason to vote cold a deal for 30% off the price of a new Ferrari.
