The Sovereign - Petrol Grass Trimmer - 26cc is a waste of money.
After a few hours use last year it now WILL NOT START.
No spare parts are available for this Chinese made machine.
The spark plug is not standard size.
Use Once and Throw away.

Have used for about an hour,
Very disappointing. Every few minutes grass gets clogged around the head and you have to stop and free head, The connecting joint is loose and is impossible to tighten using the hand nut resulting in the cutting head twisting and falling off.
On plus side starts ok.
Am returning to Homebase for refund.
Do not buy.

bought one last year used it on long grass at the back of my garden once, cut really well, stored it away in my shed, got it out 3 days later and it just refused to start, checked all the leads,plugs etc, tried again,nothing just sat there looking at me, i am Lantra qualified and can maintain them too.
took it back, staff were superb gave me refund no problem,shame as my first impression was that it was a good piece of kit for the price.
i think it was just a dud, no disrespect to the model. go for it if you like it

performed better than I expected, read start up instructions carefully, this strimmer started on the very first pull of the cord .easy to assemble, you will need the harness as it is a little heavy. excellent value for money. you must remember this is an entry level model. this is a powerfull piece of kit.spares may present a problem in the future if needed hopefully not.
