Battery Powered Strimmer, Husqvarna or Stihl...?

Morning AllI'm sure this topic has been covered before, but just wanted some upto date experience re the following. I'm looking at getting a battery powered strimmer and I'm undecied between the Husqvarna 520i LX or Stihl FSA 85. This will be the first battery powered machine I will have, so want to stick to one brand, for ease & cost of batteries. It will only be used for general tidy up of lawns, so no heavy work. Looking in the brochure the Husky seems to have the better run times between…

Planting best practices

Hi all,hope your all well after the adverse weather we've had?. Ive a question im looking for some feedback on, which is 'what is the best practice for planting'. The actual issue is landscapers putting down eco matting after planting. I don't see an issue with this, in fact its actually neater as it doesn't leave soil residue on the matting after planting and plants are backfield much better. Landscape architect has not specified either way, however an over enthusiastic contracts manager has…

Tripod ladder transport

Hi all, i've recently bought myself a set of 10ft tripod ladders (so much sturdier than my previous steps!!) what i want to know is how you all are securing them to your roof bars? I have a set of ladder clamps which are great for normal step ladders; however i cant decide the best way to secure these tripod ones, as the clamps arent wide enough, especially near the base, as its not far off as wide as my vehicle!! I do have straps which i have used once so far, but the clamps for me put my mind…
