Hayter 48 poor collection

I changed my Honda HRH536 Pro for a Hayter 48 BBC as I found it much easier to handle. However it is absolutely rubbish at picking up twigs and leaves off lawns. The Honda collected most debris no problem but the Hayter hardly lifts it. I have the high lift blades on already. I have seen plenty of complaints about Hayter wet grass collecting but this is dry debris, I suppose it amounts to the same thing - poor lift. Any ideas? Thinking of changing it already as it was used and i wont lose much.…

Burning waste in a client's garden

Hi All. I have a customer with a large garden and their previous gardener has piled the waste in a large pile away from the house.   I am being asked to burn the waste.   Is this legal and do you need any permissions or is there anything that should be taken into consideration.  Thanks in advance - Tom

Wiebang legacy 56 Pro

Anyone using these commercially? Opinions on reliability, wet grass collection. Warranty issues? They don't have very good reviews on Trustpilot, particularly when it comes to warranty claims.If any forum member has used them for more than a couple of seasons would be grateful of any info. Thanks

Asked on forum many times I know - we are using new model Hayter 56 Pro's commercially, on the whole relatively happy but the non height adjustment handles are an issue with multiple operators of different statures, the other issue is build up of grass around gearbox and rear roller in damp conditions to the extent it jams the roller. We are sure this is a design issue as the discharge chute into the grass box doesn't block, the mowers have the modified blades, the RPM is correct, the grass…

This is a first... what would you do?

I have just received a call from a neighbour of a client who we visited today - he says I scuffed his car with the van. I am 100% sure I didnt - there was no radio on in the van, quiet narrow road, the window of the van was open a bit  - and I was going walking speed down the road to park - straight in, no reversing. But apparently I was the only van that parked there today - and the scratch wasn't there this morning. What would you be your approach to that???

Viking mb4 rtp

Quick one, is it just mine or do none of them go in a straight line? Presume it's to do with the front wheels being powered? im trying to attach a rubber mat or similar to create stripes, but even if I manage that, it still doesn't want to go in a straight line. any munchers out there that stripe? 21" preferably, I may end up going down the turfmaster route, but that's another story.

"An open association like LJN is just a remarkable place. What you pay per year for what you get out of it is astonishing, and speaking personally, LJN has helped guide me from a new start up business into 5 years of profitable trading and I don't think I could have done that without access to the forum and the great contributors to it."
