Mountfield MS2500 2500W 200kg/hr Electric Garden Shredder 230-250V
Good product poor backup
An attractive piece of garden kit designed in Italy made in China and badged Mount field. Assembly is easy and straight forward The setting up instructions were not so clear ( Multi language of course.) On first use I thought that I had followed the instructions looking for metal filings in the collection bin, sure enough there were the filings. When I put some pruning's through they looked like a string of sausages so I advanced the pressure adjuster to no effect. I tried contacting Mount field several times, not wishing to damage a new machine I was unable to contact anyone that new anything about shredders, frankly their contact line is as much use as a chocolate teapot! I have advanced the pressure adjuster until the results are acceptable, to be told that in the first place would have made use that much easier

I bought this shredder on the basis of good customer reviews.
On unpacking it, found the plastic bin was broken where it slides in to the frame of the shredder.
Screwfix replaced it quickly and having just unpacked the replacement item have found exactly the same damage in the replacement item.
It's a packaging problem from the supplier - the plastic bin is used to contain the very heavy motor during transit. The plastic bin would never be designed to carry 27kg of machinery - I've now experienced two examples of it being damaged during transit. Am I alone ?
Hoping I can write a positive review for my third one !

Exceptional for the price
Easy to assemble in 5 minutes. Sturdy and dealt with all I had to throw at it over 5 hours including small branches rose bushes etc.
Blockages were few and far between and dealt with by reversing the motor.
One very minor suggestion is that it could do with a bigger collection chute, but that is really a very minor quibble.

Mountfield Shredder MS2500
Does exactly what it says.
Cant fault it.
Dont know about reliability..yet. Time will tell.
Its seems well built and works well on both hard and bushy garden refuse.
Treated refuse easily used in garden.
As I would expect.
