It is satisfying when you have helped cause someone to go find something pink, then go outside and take comparative pictures of a leaf blowers colour.

Yaaay Wrote: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!


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

Entirely as I suspected - most of the add ons don't work and you end up with an expensive hedge trimmer (granted you get a strimmer too)

Some members would have expected power and torque figures, (although not this one)

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
Sorry, the engine is rev limited to 9500rpm and rated at 1.2hp. Apparently these motors are popular with radio controlled model truck builders who port them and balance them to get 5hp at 20,000 rpm.

Where is my file?

I'm unconvinced - first you post this

then when you are challenged about your pink predilection  you run out and borrow your neighbours red version

I am reliably informed the fashion police have arrested this   person  caught exiting Tricky's neighbour's garage with a red blower under his arm  - their identity has been hidden at this time pending charges of fashion obscenity being laid

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
So we've had wet days followed by sunny days an the grass is growing fast. I missed a cut last week so it was particularly long but, no problem. I've got 20 horsepowers of Briggs and Stratton V2 power spread over 40 inches of dual blade cutting.

What happens?

Bleedin wheel falls off that's what.

Drive shaft, clean break.

Does this mean you're banned from the next lawn cutting?

Madness has its toll.  Please have exact change.

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
It means I just spent several hours pushing a 19 inch mower around.

It also means it will cost me money as on Monday I will find out how long it will take to get a replacement shaft, it's made in Italy and they will be in holiday until September. I will have to hire a machine.

It also means I will either have to spend a weekend stripping the thing or pay someone else to do it.

Bugger.

Other options:

Buy a goat

Concrete over the garden

Buy a Kubota next time (they're not made in Italy)

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
What make is yours? This is a Mountfiled. I've had Westwoods which are by far the best built (In Britain of course) and a MTD - which was appallingly badly engineered.

This drive shaft is only half an inch, solid bar, and does all the drive of a 350 kilo machine (with me on it). Drive shafts should be tubes and much bigger than that.

I'm going back to Westwood next time.

Mine's a Craftsman / Husquvana / John Deere / Rover and a whole bunch of other brands where the only differentiator is the colour scheme and the front cowl. Our block has a number of trees on it and the front wheels appear attracted to them all the time, resulting in lots of toe out.

The goats are a good idea - they can cut the lawn, trim the trees, fertilise the grass and provide milk  (and meat if Goat meat is your thing).

Clearly Tricky would recommend sheep but I think Yaaay would do well to avoid any Tricky inspired recommendations especially in relation to the sheep/goat option as he has a clear longstanding documented bias in this forum

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
The mower is still in the shop. It's being repaired under warranty but the new axle has to come from Italy and I can't see them flying it up here.

RE: The petrol powered garden impliment thread.
Bad News:- Still not fixed. 3 weeks to get a new axle.

Good News:- They lent me this in the meantime.

3 cylinder diesel, very fast, power steering, hydraulic everything, but very poor quality cut.
