Mountfield MHJ2424 61cm 24.5cc 1.1hp Petrol Hedge Trimmer
breath of fresh air
after purchasing an alternative brand, not from Screwfix, I returned to Screwfix and Mountfield, 15 month old alternative is in the bin.
Great service, product fires up as soon as it is primed and performs very well. And you add in the price, great value for money.
Too early to comment on reliability but my Mountfield lawnmower has worked perfectly for years.

Very good value
Looked around at Sthil and others with a similar spec, all at least Â£100 more for the same spec as this machine.
We have a lot of hedges, some laurel and some mixed privets and I previously used an electric hedge cutter which I stupidly left out during a shower and it blew up!
Compared with the electric trimmer this Mountfield is much more powerful, and goes through hedges like a knife through butter and will cut through pretty thick branches with no bother.
On the down side it is much heavier than an electric machine and after an hour or so's use my arms were aching! Who needs the gym! Looking at the spec for other petrol machines this is no heavier than other 2 stroke units, it's just one of the features of petrol v electric.
On the upside, there is no cable to chop through! (yes I managed to do this too with my electric trimmer!)
This machine starts very easily and will idle without the blade running.
The only downside on the design is the on/off switch is poorly positioned and it's easy to catch it by accident and switch the machine off, however once you get used to it it's not too bad. The handle rotates to make it easier to hold and do the top of the hedges.
All in all I am very pleased with this machine, and would give it 9/10 with the only down mark for the position of the on/off switch. Great value.

Not to Heavy to Use and with the adjustable
Handle it makes cutting easier.
