Bought mine several years ago. As per all the other reviews - line kept breaking after 10-15 seconds. Thought it was my fault, not fitting the spool properly or feeding the line incorrectly or something. Moved house, didn't need a strimmer.

Homebase are poor and this Sovereign GGT600L is the first time and last time I will Purchase anything there especially Garden Equipment.

Advice Stick to top… Read Full Review
