Rated 5 out of 5Â by JohnnyHotdog Top hedge trimmer
My last petrol hedge trimmer was a Ryobi, when you could get it started that worked well.....I finished up putting it in a skip because I nearly put my shoulder out after an hour of trying to start it! ....not so with this Mountfield. From cold prime it, pull the handle it starts. When it's hot, pull the handle it starts. Cuts well, not too heavy and more importantly it starts whenever I want it to.......works for me!

Had high hopes for this as the mountfield garden vac was faultless.
Unfortunately the first hedge trimmer I got started with ease but the blades refused to work, followed the instructions numerous times to no avail.
Gave up and Screwfix exchanged immediately and guess what the same trouble again. started then even after a 5 min warm up when you tried to rev the engine a nasty clunk came from the housing and the motor was killed.
Gave up after several more attempts and returned for a full refund - now purchased a stilh

I have Sthil hedgecutters and other equipment, but needed a smaller newer cutter for general hedge cutting, I was nervous not buying a branded one but the reviews were so good I took a risk,and am glad I did, starts very well, excellent cut, not heavy compaired to other machines, I had mine 4 months and the trigger Jammed in, screwfix newport excellent customer service swapped it over with no problems.
The machine is perfect for average garden hedges, I wouldn't hesitate recommending this machine, ps as others have stated the on off button is a bit annoying when you turn it off by accident, but not really a problem at all as it starts immediately

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HomeGardener Pricey but worth it
Purchased this trimmer to replace another brand I had purchased earlier the same day which was useless! Started very easily, and ran faultlessly for over a hour giving a very neat/clean cut.
Haven't needed to use since, so can't rate reliability at 5* yet.
