Description

If you're looking for a fast and efficient way to tame a large, well established hedge, then this high-performance, double-bladed hedgetrimmer from Mountfield is well worth considering.

Its premium-quality dual-reciprocating blades are double-sided and measure an impressive 61cm, so a high productivity rate is guaranteed. The generous 28mm tooth-spacing on the blades makes it possible to cut through older, larger-diameter growth.

The Mountfield MHJ2424 Double-Bladed Petrol Hedgetrimmer is fitted with a powerful and dependable 24.5cc (0.85kW) two-stroke engine that's easy to start; and which runs on a 50:1 fuel/oil mixture.

It's well balanced, has an ergonomic handle lay-out, and weighs only 5.5kg; a combination that makes it comfortable and easy to manoeuvre across the hedge. A three-position twist-grip rear-handle further enhances ease-of-use.

Features

  • Double-sided, dual reciprocating blades for a fast work-rate
  • Powerful, reliable and easy-starting two-stroke engine
  • 28mm tooth-gap makes it possible to tackle thick, woody growth
  • Lightweight and ideally balanced
  • Three-stage twistable handle for the perfect working angle

Great Cutters The machine arrived on time and I have been using since August 2018. Very easy to assemble as it arrived all made-up and within minutes of opening I used it for the first time.

Great little cutters and so easy to use. It starts first time, every time and is very fuel efficient.

I would not hesitate in recommending this cutter to anyone.

Great Hedge Trimmer This is a top class product product for the money. Although I have used it twice so far, it seems to be a well made product that works straight out of the box. It's also incredibly easy to start and cuts any hedge up to its stated capabilities.

I would also like to mention MowDirect for their first class service from order to delivery and communication.

Dream Machine An absolute Rolls Royce of hedgecutters. Straight out of the box, filled with fuel and fired up ready to go. Very smooth operation, large cutter provides for fast removal of excess hedge growth, comfortable to use and takes large and compact hedging with ease.

All-in-all a superb piece of kit and lives up to its quality name.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

Good Value Machine Had mine a month and used two or three times a week. It cuts as well now as when I first bought it and has a very robust feel. The adjustable handle is also very useful. The only downsides are the weight and the exhaust being close to your left arm but, given the cost, I think I can live with these minor problems.

Fantastic Have 140 of Hawthorn (both sides) and same of privet hedge and used to take most of day with an electric trimmer. This beast takes a fraction of the time. A little on the heavy side but, due to the movable hand grip, easy to handle. Easy to start and reliable, once you've sussed the choke. Have used it several times with no issues. A shame there was no mixing bottle for the fuel/oil mixture included!

Excellent Performer I bought this trimmer to replace one I had had for over 12 years. It is a good size if a bit heavy but the adjustable handle is a great help. As someone mentioned earlier the exhaust can catch the wrist which can be countered by wearing gloves with wrist cover (mine are short!)

The double cutting action makes quick work of my mixed hedges (holly, privet, hawthorn & beech) Easy to start (no assembly apart from fuel). Good purchase.

Excellent Product Purchased this as a replacement for one of the major DIY store cheaper types. Bought it on recommendation of reviews on MowDirect site and so glad that I did. Product arrived well packed and, after filling with correct mix of fuel, started 2nd pull!

Machine is fairly quiet and vibration free and fits well in the hand. Used a couple of times and delighted with the results.

It is a seriously sharp and business like machine, and made light work of a large Leylandii hedge which previous machine had difficulty cutting efficiently. This machine was like a laser, cut through everything on offer and left a nice smooth finish.

One word of warning, you could get over enthusiastic when cutting and finish up with bald spots if not careful!

Would recommend this machine over the cheaper DIY store budget models.

Makes Easy Work Of Most Things But Does Need Care In Handling Very powerful and made short work of a mixture of hedges, box hedges, over grown yew trees etc.

I'm fairly fit and familiar with doing heavy duty stuff outdoors but thought it felt slightly heavy and takes some handling, so you need to be at least average fitness and mobility.

Has good features and found safe to use, but dont underestimate the speed and force with which the starter pull cord recoils when you are trying to start it, and if you let go as I did and it hits your hand, be prepared for a nice cut, big bruise and turning the air blue. Not the fault of the trimmer but you do need to be conscious when using kit like this to think first.

Overall very pleased and the tidying up took far longer than the cutting back.

Exhaust heat Everything with this machine is very good apart from the positioning of the exhaust outlet. Within a few minutes of operating the machine the heat coming off the exhaust is enough to make holding the machine quite uncomfortable. Whilst it does not actually burn the lower arm it is very irritating. Definitely needed better testing at design stage.

Difficult to start I read a lot of reviews before I purchased this hedge cutter. Most products came out with similar ratings so I opted for the Mountfield as I have owned a lawnmower in the past that served me well for many years.

Getting it out of the box my initial thoughts were, sturdy and well engineered. I read the manual and mixed the fuel very carefully.

I filled the tank and primed the engine as per manual, although I kept pumping and never saw any fuel at the exhaust pipe. I then fully engaged the choke and proceeded to pull the starter cord and I pulled and pulled and pulled. being brand new I didn't expect it to fire up on 1 pull but t must have been about 40 pulls before it finally fired up. I must say it did tick over nicely and never stalled.

I haven't given it a good all day work out yet but I did try it on 4m of hawthorne and I was impressed with its cutting ability.

I think it might be rather heavy for some people but I didn't find it too heavy being a big strong chap. Vibration levels seem acceptable.

Excellent Purchase Was forced into this purchase by the failure of my previous hedge trimmer that had served me well for a number of years. I tried to get a replacement but discovered that the model was no longer available and the reviews concerning its replacement were not encouraging.
I had heard that Mountfield were a reliable and fairly priced Company read the reviews and took a chance.
It was delivered swiftly as promised and within 10 minutes of taking it out of its box, quick check with the handbook, spot of previously mixed 2 stroke and away we went. Started on 4th/5th pull (2nd thereafter), idled beautifully and powered up as it should.
Working with it was easy helped by the 3 position handle.The weight and balance are good and the fuel delivery excellent in whatever position.
To sum up... an excellent machine and a happy gardener !

Excellent value I purchased this machine as it seemed excellent value at £130 delivered free. I see on receipt of the machine it is quite an old build of machine. However It came well packaged and ready to go (apart from requiring fuel). Once I got it started it cut my 60 meters of hedge in no time at all. Only one small blip was when during cutting a twig from the hedge must have caught on the choke and the machine cut out. It took a minute to discover this was the reason for the cut out, but it then restarted no bother and the job was finished. I am well pleased with the machine's performance and hope fully will last a good number of years. I would recommend this product as great value for money.

Wow! That was fast. Ordered on the Tuesday, delivered the next day and even the factory box was pristine - very professional courier (DPD) used.

This machine was on offer and had glowing reviews and now I know why. It's all pre-assembled so after the usual checks, just add the two-stroke and it's ready to use. Everything service-wise is readily accessible. The machine is a decent size but not as heavy as I had imagined and the adjustable rear handle is really useful.

Doubtless the Stihl or Tanaka machines are superior but the Mountfield is a good quality trimmer and at the current budget-type price, it's an excellent deal.

Excellent machine for the price After using a Bosch electric machine for many years I decided to purchase a petrol machine. The machine started after about the 3rd pull and worked a treat. I cut my own hedge and my neighbours in half of the time it would take with the electric machine just to cut my own. Wish I had bought one of these years ago. No more fear of cutting through cables either.
