Excellent piece of equipment
02-Aug-2013
By
, Staines-upon-Thames
"I had a Flymo combined blower and vacuum previously, which failed after less than three years.
I decided on a Mountfield partly because the Screwfix price was good and partly because I could get the replacement urgently through them.
The Mountfield is less bulky than the Flymo, lighter to carry around, considerably more powerful and takes less than half the time to vacuum leaves that the Flymo took.
Would have no hesitation in recommending both Mountfield and Screwfix.
The only downside for me was the instruction booklet, which didn't explain adequately about fixing the carrying harness, or the safety features.
But these are minor grumbles! The blower/vacuum is excellent - and that's what really matters.

disapointing

"purchased the vac 3 months ago and although it works well as both a blower and a vacuum it is let down by the fiddly nature of switching from vacuum to blower which entails removing and replacing parts of the machine.
After only 3 uses the zip on the collection bag broke rendering the machine useless.
These zips are very flimsy and need to be upgraded to make the machine viable.
Full marks to screw fix who made a full refund and I was able to purchase a different model from them."

Powerful machine
21-Nov-2013
By
, Lancashire
"Choose the Mountfield electric blower as I hoped the build quality would be better than the bargain basement ones.
It works really well - very powerful blowing action. Vacuum is good too - makes short work of leaves, even picking up large wet leaves. Shredder function reduces volume effectively, though tends to clog up after a time.
Not too heavy to carry about.
A few bad points: the instruction manual is awful, the plastic mouldings look rather cheap and nasty - doesn't inspire confidence , the on/off switch is a bit cumbersome - a trigger would be better, the nozzle/bag/tube attachments are fiddly to get on and off, the zip on the collection bag is fiddly and looks like it won't last too many seasons, the variable speed control doesn't make much difference bewteen high and low.
Apart from those niggles it's a good machine and I'm pleased with what it does.

Underpowered
02-Jan-2014
By
, Chepstow
"Not at all happy with this machine. Firstly the picture displayed on the site does not show the actual machine supplied. That aside what's supplied is marked as a Mountfield MBL2600.
It's a poorly built and vastly under powered machine and nowhere near as good as the item I replaced. The blow nozzle and vac pipe are cumbersome to fit and don't feel at all well manufactured. The biggest complaint is the grossly undersized collection bag. You find yourself emptying it every few minutes and after about 10 emptyings the zip has broken rendering it useless. Not a machine I'd recommend to anyone."

OK Blwr & Vac - Bad Bag & Zip
20-Dec-2013
By
, Gloucester
"Having bought this product and exchanged it twice in one day and for a third time in two days, I finally gave up and exchanged it for a Bosch unit, which turned out to be far superior and only cost a further £10. This was a disappointment, as i had used mountfield in the past and found them to be reliable and of a good quality. What a shame that the Blower & Vac was excellent, but let down by a collecting Bag and Zip which are clearly too weak and not "Fit for Purpose". I would suggest that Mountfield check their R&D department for their test results - then check out how a competitor can produce a Bag that knocks spots off them and at a standard Retail price that is Lower!!!?"
