Rated 1 out of 5 by from Another leaking fuel cap! No 2 stroke oil provided as I had with my last one. Checked the trimmer over first, lubricated the cutting head sliding surfaces as there was only light oil preservative on the surfaces. mixed fuel and put into tank. Starting was not as quick as my older short blade one. When running it was running rough and very noisy.I started trimming the hedge and it cut the hedge, but was not as free cutting as my shorter one (blade design different). The running was still lumpy after it was warm. After 15 mins use my right leg started itching, but thought nothing of it, but then felt it damp! FUEL was leaking out of the vent hole in the filling cap, just a straight through hole, NO valve of any description. It was also running down onto the HOT engine and exhaust, so it could have ignited and I could have gone up in flames. Mountfield used to have a good name through its solid reliable manufacturing methods (I used to repair mowers etc when I was an apprentice), but this fault is safety critical. If you do purchase one blow through the cap to see if its restricted (should be) or not before setting off from the store in your vehicle. I was refunded my money without any problems after owning it for a few days and finished cutting the 50 mtr long by 3 mtr high hedge with my old trimmer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor starting As a pro gardener I rely on good equipment. This hedge trimmer has been disappointing. When it is running it does a good job and the angles that the handle can be set to is a real bonus. However it can be a real dog to start! I have many different petrol gardening machines and I am well versed in how to start and maintain them. This is different, it is hard to start, but when it is running it is fine. I dread starting it (particularly with a customer watching). When it is running it produces a lot of smoke which is not good when using for hours on end. Mountfield produce generally good equipment, but this is not one of them. When the time comes I will not buy this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bit of kit This hedge trimmer starts first time and runs very smoothly. It cuts through mature hedges and shrubs like a hot knife through butter and at this price will have paid for itself after just a few uses. Highly recomended

Reduction gear lubrication type

Page 10 of the product manual 'LUBRICATING THE REDUCTION GEAR (Fig. 10) refers to 'special molybdenum bisulphur lubrication'. Does anyone know the correct specification?

Mountfield Manufactuerer’s Guarantee

I bought a hedge trimmer (MHJ2424) yesterday It was working fine, but suddenly it developed a grating noise. Although the trimmer is still working, I am worried if I carry on using it, it will cause real damage. What should I do ?
