- Excellent Product
Excellent Product Excellent hedge trimmer. Very easy to use and started first straight from the packaging. Highly recommended. Service from MowDirect very good too.
Useful Easy starting. The adjustable handle is a bonus. Weight could be a problem and not sure that the advertised larger cutting size is practical or obtainable, but this is only after its first use.
- Good Product
Good Product Excellent service from MowDirect.
Trimmer is virtually ready to go, started easily. The enclosed instructions seem to differ from what was on the machine, but this didn't present a problem. It has plenty of power and cuts well. The fuel tank doesn't last long, but larger would have made the machine bulkier and heavier I suppose. Fairly heavy machine when moving it about, so the plus is my wife will not use it !
Generally an excellent price and works well.
- A Beast of a Machine
A Beast of a Machine I love this Hedgetrimmer. I have three quarters of an acre and it is just perfect for me, making my garden look great
Excellent Started straight out of the box and performed excellently. A tad heavy after prolonged use but this is to be expected. It has been used on numerous hedge types around the garden and is so much easier and quicker than an electric one. Excellent value for money too at this price.
The only minor criticism I have is that is easy to knock the off switch when in use, but a quick pull on the starter cord and it's cutting again in seconds.
- Nice bit of kit
Nice bit of kit It does exactly what I would expect a petrol engined hedge cutter to do. The adjustable handle makes cutting vertical hedge faces a doddle.
The downside is that the on/off switch is very sensitive and I have found on numerous occasions that having let go of the starter cord and moving the hand back to the throttle I have knocked the switch causing the engine to cut out! This has been whilst wearing gloves so can't comment if I would find it the same without. Whilst I have found this sensitive switch annoying I do always tell myself that this is actually a safety feature and may come in handy one day. The weight of the machine can also start to take its toll after a while but some, naturally, may find it easier to cope than others.
Forget the enclosed fuel mixing bottle, it just doesn't make sense. Bin it and go and get one from somewhere else. Job done!
Otherwise a good bit of kit with easy start.
Brilliant This is a great product for the money. It starts easy and performs really well. The only downside is that it's a little heavy when reaching out over hedging and I kept catching the kill switch. But I suppose wearing my thick leather gloves didn't help. Other than that I can highly recommend it.
- Very Good Trimmer, Handles Thick Branches Easily.
Very Good Trimmer, Handles Thick Branches Easily. Used it for about 3 hours so far over three sessions, although it can get tiring on the arms after a while. It is a robust and powerful trimmer. It does the job very well. Easy to start.
- Brill !!
Brill !! Very pleased with MowDirect, I telephoned them to double check they had this in stock before I ordered. Very efficient, helpful & friendly staff. I ordered online, before lunchtime, and the trimmer arrived the very next day ! Super fast !!!
I've only ever used an electric trimmer in the past, so totally new to this petrol trimmer. Simple, the instructions are clear and easy to understand. Soon I was trimming back my hedges ( badly overgrown with brambles, etc). So powerful and easy to use, & much quicker progress than an electric trimmer.
I am very pleased with MowDirect and my Mountfield MHJ2424 Double-Bladed Petrol Hedgetrimmer.
- Great Cut
Great Cut This hedgetrimmer is keenly priced and cuts very well, and the engine starts easily. It is heavy on the arms, but all comparable machines are a similar weight; it's just the way things are with a petrol-powered trimmer. At least the job can be done quickly. A minor irritation is that it's easy to switch off the engine accidentally, and the hedge itself did so once.
But overall I'm very pleased with my purchase.
