Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jgbriggs Useless, AVOID at all costs
Bought a few months ago and only used it as a blower, never used it once as a vacuum
I always had trouble with it starting.
Once started it would bog down easily when you try to speed up the engine.
Its quite heavy on the arm if you use it for more than 5/10 mins so you have to keep swapping arms.
Now yesterday it worked as above description but today it will not start at all,
Had new spark plug, checked air filter, checked spark arrestor and still nothing, doesnt even try to tick over. My assumption is that its a compression problem.
Spend more money and get a descent one...
Wish I did at the time!
AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Like others, I ignored advice to avoid this product as Mountfield products are usually very good. This one is very poor. It's OK- ish once you can coax the thing to start. The positive reviewers either have some magic way of starting it , are using a different product or I'm a numpty. I've tried every combination and what works one time doesn't the next. I'm familiar with 2 strokes so know they can be temperamental. This one is a sulky, lazy teenager.

Easy to put together and start although after reading other reviews we sought advice on the correct fuel mix.
Blows very well but was surprised at the amount of vibration on the hand. Will see if a lanyard helps

Rated 1 out of 5Â by gardener15 Worst ever
Bought this because of reviews on here and have to say its prob the worst piece of kit I have ever had. would NOT START, rubbish at picking up more than a few leaves and mulching, would not tick over etc etc, pay a little extra and get a proper one. Come on Mountfield you can do better.
