    Seems to be the one with enough power for farm stuff.

    eBay.com and the company I dealt with had postage and customs price. Have to say it's a really good bit of kit. I am not one for trimming garden hedge but was cutting the grass and saw it could do with a tidy up and no messing about jobs done.
    Did buy it for my wife for mother's Day but she was not overly excited by it.
    I reckoned she always buys me crap for my birthday etc that she actually wants like art and stuff. Even though I always say I would like tools. Funnily enough when we were going out she bought me a seriously good sds Hitachi 28v which I still have.

    it should be good enough then so, mines about 12-16 month old now but by the way they came out with different models it id be old school now, iirc there is only one or two numbers/letters that actually change in the models, its got two speeds one isnt worth much and the other is full tilt.
    since i bought the smaller version of it in 1/2" the bigger gun only gets used for the bull work and its well up to it, indeed they both have retired the cp air guns i have, which is something i never thought would happen tbh.
    the no lead/air line concept is a joy now a days.

    well, work it out, £100 would run the trimmer over a fair farm, 1 hyd pump will be the equilavant to 5 years trimming.
    i been using a battery trimmer in the garden, its been a real wakeup call on what we need v what we think we need.
    i recently asked a price to look at borehole pump, it was 10 times to look at it compared to buying a new solar powered setup
    capable of going down 200 feet
    Somehow we have let costs run wild and think there is no alternative.
    icopied somebodies idea and put wheels under my battery trimmer, it hasent half set off a train of thought. this place was run with 4 standards and a tvo nuffield plus a couple of cart horses.
    the work was done and the farm paid for 4 at private school.
    now there is a 7710, 6920, 6630, 6620, 6610, a 6 cylinder ford, a 4 cylinder ford, 2 telehandlers,
    2 bunning spreaders the list goes on and on and i is informed there is a 6 meter grassland drill awaiting collection, all to essentially do the same work that was done years before, made a big mistake in going to look at a machhine, chap said he would pull it out to see.
    got talking, he had bought a baler, hitched it up to tractor 4 years ago and thats how it stayed,
    same with the machine we went to look at

    Best go to Mole Valley and buy up half a dozen prongs for picking up all the hedge pairings. Good luck finding volunteers to drive the prongs :ROFLMAO::p

    why woulld you bother to pick it up.
    a run round in spring to kill the brambles, after that you are only being OCD about the job unless you want to cover up the mangle cave

    Granfer always had the pairings picked up, he liked a tidy farm :p(y)

    PS while you’re at it I should sell that JCB handler that loads the dungspreader. You can use the prongs to load it that you bought for the hedgepairings. (y)
    Now we are really making some savings. :LOL:

    yer , u just prompted a thought, u arable types charging so much fer straw i could run the baler round and pick up the pairings fer bedding..
    my granfer bought the farm and died soon after, might have been taking the bucket of cyder up with him along with the bottle of scotch to see him through the night

    Us av our own cider press 'ere, but 'taint been used four a while. I must have taken after Granfer as sometimes i is almost embarrassed by how much whisky i has in the pantry. Us could have several brave evenings yer .... but 'tis a fair drive home fur you ........ could always boat it across to Cotehele or Halton Quay
    Don't think your bullocks would thank e for baling up my thorn trimmings to bed em on :p

    have to get me still back in operation, i used to distill some proper moonshine
    lucky barsteward, my cupboard is bare, or will be in a few miniuts. still tis a night for celebration, got some of me guns back on tuesday. the incompetance of the firearms dept is actually so bad its dangerous.lucky for them their performance is measured against the cops who really are the dreggs of society who make them look like rocket scientists iin comparison, the property store is a tin shed on an industrial site, with a tin opener you could walk in and enpty the place.
    put the scope back on the hmr, 5 shots , 5 bunnies, the old codger still got it. hah notification that me blue badge gonr through today so can now can park anywhere and offically allowed to be a c....t. i get to chose me new transport, wont have to tax it now on, think i can claim attendance allowance for a bird, plus other as yet unknown side benefits
