Mountfield MBL2600 2600W 220-240V Electric Mulching Blower & Vacuum
purchased the vac 3 months ago and although it works well as both a blower and a vacuum it is let down by the fiddly nature of switching from vacuum to blower which entails removing and replacing parts of the machine.
After only 3 uses the zip on the collection bag broke rendering the machine useless.
These zips are very flimsy and need to be upgraded to make the machine viable.
Full marks to screw fix who made a full refund and I was able to purchase a different model from them.

Not at all happy with this machine. Firstly the picture displayed on the site does not show the actual machine supplied. That aside what's supplied is marked as a Mountfield MBL2600.
It's a poorly built and vastly under powered machine and nowhere near as good as the item I replaced. The blow nozzle and vac pipe are cumbersome to fit and don't feel at all well manufactured. The biggest complaint is the grossly undersized collection bag. You find yourself emptying it every few minutes and after about 10 emptyings the zip has broken rendering it useless. Not a machine I'd recommend to anyone.

OK Blwr & Vac - Bad Bag & Zip
Having bought this product and exchanged it twice in one day and for a third time in two days, I finally gave up and exchanged it for a Bosch unit, which turned out to be far superior and only cost a further Â£10. This was a disappointment, as i had used mountfield in the past and found them to be reliable and of a good quality. What a shame that the Blower & Vac was excellent, but let down by a collecting Bag and Zip which are clearly too weak and not "Fit for Purpose". I would suggest that Mountfield check their R&D department for their test results - then check out how a competitor can produce a Bag that knocks spots off them and at a standard Retail price that is Lower!!!?
