I recently purchased a Trueshopping grass strimmer. As caretaker of a school, I have some quite large areas of weeds and nettles etc to keep at bay.
I assembled the unit, which took quite a while and then attempted to start it. Well, it did even want to fire up at all. After further investigation I discovered that the sparkplug was not even remotely tight within its housing. Even more alarming was the poor design of the spark plug cover and lead connection. The spring into which the sparkplug connects is simply connected to the wire through the use of two spikes that pierce the wire. (Not the best description I know, sorry)
Anyway, after reading reviews, more specifically about starting issues, it turns out that this brand has many starting issues. The company are sending a replacement, but I'm wondering if I ought to just get a refund and buy a better trimmer.
So, I thought let's ask people who use these machines on a daily basis, which petrol grass strimmer that they would recommend
