Posted 19th May
Both of these are very well reviewed trimmers and pretty much the best value I can see out there. I actually almost bought the 400w model before, until I remembered we don't have any hedges at all. So... yeah that phone call for a cancellation would have been a tad awkward

Customer Service: Reason for cancellation?
Me: I'm stupid

The 550W model is £5 more and also has a longer cord at 10m vs the 400w model with a 6m cord. Maybe not a problem for many, if you've got the BRIGHT ORANGE CABLE OF FREEDOM!!! Yeah... the one for the mower and strimmer, that lives in the shed... The 400w is lighter (as you'd expect) at 2.5kg vs 2.9kg on the 550w model.

I have one of these no complaints.
Also have one, use it quite a bit and have had zero issues
Wouldn't recommend for a conifer hedge, went bang then lots of smoke around a year old.

Ur friend has a point..
My one lasted less than a year, motor burnt out after 4 uses, literally smoking. Nightmare, getting zero responses from Argos CS during lockdown to enable a return once stores open.

Yeah no issues but I’ve not really taxed it either
I have the cordless version and they're actually quite good. I only got it because the one I wanted was out of stock but I've been quite impressed.
What's the warranty like?
Bought one the other day, it's brilliant for the money!
No enquiries about its suitability for trimming a large bush? This place is going downhill fast.

We bought this from BQ. Powerful, 60cm blade and cuts up to 25mm in diameter. Mixed reviews on BQ but has worked well for us. diy.com/dep…prd
Bought one a fortnight ago. Guard came off immediately on use. Repaired, fell off again. Now stuck with it until Argos reopen as they are not allowing returns until they reopen.
I've just got a titan 550w, 60cm one from screwfix for £39.99. A little more but good reviews and worked better than I expected after using a petrol one in the past.
Good price we have a wired one to it does the job but the lead does not allow us to reach the end of the garden so annoying going to invest in a cordless one save swearing at the cable lol

That always happens to me and I feel as if I'm being cheeky trying to get back my own stuff haha
That's the coronavirus hair cut sorted....
My neighbours keep asking me to buy one of these they always look confused when I said I don’t have a hedge (have to cut the neighbours to see out of my drive) maybe a good Crimbo present for them
They seem cheaper now ?

Would appreciate some feedback from those that’ve used this trimmers please.
