Rated 4 out of 5Â by FarehamDIY Garden blower
Great price and does the job. seems well made and easy to start.
dual function vac and blow - swapping the tubes a bit of a faff at first , but easy once sussed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Powler Impressed!
We have a Willow tree that overhangs our decking, which drops leaves all over it, Even in the summer months. Sweeping is not possible as the leaves go through the gaps.... Bought this Blower / Vac to pick all these leaves up.
I have used the electric type Garden Vacs before and not been very impressed. This however does the job with ease.
Started first time out of the box.
Has a nice mulching feature on Vac as well so bag does not fill too quickly and contents can easily be emptied / Composted.
My only issues are that the supplied screwdriver/ spanner does not fit the screw you have to remove to change from Vac to blower and the mixing bottle does not have 50:1 scale (which is required for this machine) on it!!!!
minor things though really.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Deano44 Unreliable/ Beware
I had read mixed reviews about the blower but still went ahead and brought the blower, reason for this is that Mountfield is a good name and I associate it with relible products.
It was from the beginning difficult to start and when I used it I thought I could always smell burning rubber but could not see any signs of burning. Blower has got to the point that I can no longer start it so have just taken it back and waiting for replacement.
I will give it a month or so but if the same happens I will return for a refund this time. Very surprised that Mountfield have brought to market such a poor product.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Nashy Disappointing
Really wanted to upgrade from an electric blower vac to a petrol machine as I have a reasonable size garden to clear up. So disappointed with this machine. As others have commented, the pipes are difficult to assemble and dismantle but I could live with this if the performance and quality were reasonable. However, in my opinion the performance of the machine was poor compared to my old electric Flymo garden vac. The blower was average. The vac was rubbish unless it was on full power but the instructions tell you not to use it on full power for the first 8hrs of use. I also found that the HT lead connecting to the spark plug kept vibrating loose meaning that the machine stops. In summary I think the machine is not fit for purpose. I returned the item for a refund the next day.
