RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
It is, isn't there any allowance for petrol powered garden implements?

Will come in handy for blowing the powder snow out of those Greenland fox holes in about a week I assume.

The route of the problem being the rabbits. They destroy the grass, what can I do?

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
OK, here is the review you have been waiting 5 months for.

This is the power unit. 30cc 2 stroke. Start easily and it is very noisy. Great!

[Image: 29ct3yw.jpg]

Strimmer Head - works well and is importantly well balanced. It has dual line autofeed and there is plenty of power from the engine. The head makes a good swish sound coupled with the screaming engine means I can annoy more than just my immediate neighbours. Not as much of a compromise as I thought so 8/10

[Image: 11qtwg0.jpg]

Here is the hedge trimmer attachment. The reason I brought this thing in the first place. Good news is there is way more power then needed and the thing is fast, very fast, bad news is the weight distribution is poor and it's back end heavy. It has good reach and can easily span over six feet. If the balance would be sorted it would make a fine trimmer but as it is not - 7/10

[Image: 2qdts9h.jpg]

Here is the result of a little trimming I did earlier.

Now for the less useful attachments. This is the tiller, it will till dry sand but little else. It is geared so it pulls away from you so you need to be a Female Russian Shot Putter to keep enough pressure to dig soil. I have never used anything before so awkward to use. It is slower than a conventional fork but nosier so there is one plus there. 3/10

Now this is the "mini hover mower". Never before has something so gimmicky been so badly thought out. There is not enough power to really get it into a hover and it doesn't cut the grass but rather push it over a little bit. 0/10

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
I'm not very good at gardening equipment -many of you already know that my neighbour mows my lawn

So I am just going to praise you for the grass, perfection. Also I note that your gravel drive is nice and level, that gives you big plus points.

The bushes could do with some more work.

Grass 9/10
Gravel 10/10
Bush 7/10

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
I  had one of these when I lived in a previous house with a much smaller lawn

It is basically a lawn mover hover craft

I have a fairly large lawn now and I am happy to say I no longer have a lawn mover having given it away and replacing it with a man who comes in fortnightly in the summer and 3 to 4 weekly in the winter

That one is electric as it was only designed for small lawns --- to be honest I am not sure if they have a petrol model - once I moved to larger lawns I went for the traditional  petrol lawn mowers.

It was great to use -- really light - not terribly noisy and cut the lawn well.

That is outrageous. Not in the spirit of this thread really.

I am trying to introduce you to environmentally sound garden implements not noisy, petrol guzzling, carbon spewing antiquated garden instruments of a bygone era
