I had to work up too full 12 hr day it fry’s you head after a while but you do get past it and now I can sit it in it all day comfortably first week was brutal 3 pm onwards it’s horrible feeling .

Very good, mountains of power.

Having the blade means it has bigger drives than a non bladed 135 or a 130 so plenty of go and the blade makes it so easy.

Zero swing is handy to get around and not have to watch for objects catching the rear end.
Blades are fantastically handy , no many jobs I e done not used the blade .

still balanced ok without the arse?
 
Yes balances fine, I mean if you wanted to make it lift the track at the back you have to be fairly rough or be meaning to do it.

Almost every machine down the motorway is a zx135 or zx225. You have to look hard to find something with a big arse that isn't a 350 or that.

Have your voice heard. Should the Horticulture levy continue?

A ‘yes’ is a vote for change and a ‘no’ could see the end of a statutory levy. I encourage you to consider the facts and to use your vote. At a time of immense change, the loss of a central organisation that invests in applied research for the benefit of all would be a considerable loss
