Mountfield MBL260H 25.4cc 2-Stroke Petrol Blower & Vacuum
Bought this otherwise perfect tool a couple of years ago and this week found both fuel lines had broken inside the fuel tank. managed to bodge a running repair but cant get replacement fuel lines as spare parts for the machine. Hunting for generic replacements is a pain because they are both different id and od dimensions and have to fit the fuel tank grommet to ensure a fuel seal....
my local garden tool specialist tells me the tool is a write off!

Mountfield petrol blower
Item works well. The engine started on the second attempt. After the first use started first time. Delivery was promised within 48 hours - came in 24 hours. Excellent piece of equipment matched with excellent service.

Not as good as I thought
I've bought other Mountfield products in the past without any major problems.This was different matter, fitting it together before I used it, the blower tube fits easily, switching to a vacuum is a different matter, eventually got the first vacuum tube on, At one point I was using it as a blower with one of the vacuum pipes still attached as I couldnt remove the pipe. Then using it for a second time the choke lever snapped off making it difficult to start and wouldnt tickover. One worrying thing is the website instructions are different from the instructions you get with the machine nowhere in the English part do they state 50:1mix you have to look in the Italian part where they state 30:1 so which is right ???

Great leaf blower/vac
Bought this as replacement for the equivalent McCulloch which lasted less than a month before it stopped working. But of luck really as it was cheaper and lighter than the previous one. I live way out in the countryside and there are mountains of leaves each year so it has really been put through its paces this autumn and has not let me down.
Really happy with it so far.
