"Some interesting points, thanks Adam.
I'm currently spraying from a quad, so with a tractor mounted sprayer It'd kill two birds, so to speak. 
My trailer is a 12 x 6 beaver. It's something I'd already considered. 
As far as the hedge cutter, I was…"

"Simple (in theory!), if you are 100% sure you didn't do it, just say that. There's nothing they can do about it. As others have said, it should be easy to prove by measuring the height and position of the scratch and seeing if there are any marks on…"

"Although he says the scratch wasn't there in the morning, I would imagine it could well have been.  How many of us spot a new dent/scratch on their vans and have no idea whether it was today or last week?  I'd have a look at the "scuff" and see how…"

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.

Outfront or Compact

Morning. I have a Kubota F3680 that's coming to the end of its life. It works very hard.I'm considering getting a new(er) one but am in two minds on whether to get another outfront or a compact tractor.Pros and cons etc.Outfront is perfect for what I do, but limiting as in, thats all it does, cut grass.Tractor is not so great for the grass but im thinking hedge cutters, log splitters, chippers, pto sprayer etc.Also, what would be the widest mower attachment I could put on the back of a ,say,…

Charging for laying turf

Hi guys and girls. Another how much to charge thread. I have a turfing job this weekend about 70²M in total. The top few inches have already been scraped off and I have a rotavator hired for the morning to prepare the soil. Then topsoil to go down level, turf etc but I don't really know how long it's going to take me as I haven't done anything of this size before. My other half will be able to give me some help and the soìl and turf will be delivered to the back of the house.How long will it…

Stihl RMA 235

My maintenance round seems to have ended up being 90% tiny lawns (usually spend more time priming and starting than cutting the lawn) and I've been toying with the idea of battery for the smaller jobs. What I wanted to know is has anyone tried one of these dinky lil Stihl machines? They look super handy to just grab and go for those smaller jobs.

Beech hedges

Can I just check with you all.... a new owner has moved into a large house where we  look after the gardens. The drive is bordered by a curvy 12' high beech hedge that has over the years got wider than it should. If we take it back by a foot or so it will, over a couple of years green up from the centre won't it?

Removing wheels from Billy Goat

The wheel looks like it should just pull off the axle. The silver collar around the axle is fixed and appears to be part of the axle and not part of the bearing.   It is the black rubber that moves.  Cannot upload a video directly from phone.  There is no obvious way to grip the silver collar if it is to be unscrewed.

Knapsack sprayer

Looking to replace a couple of sprayers, I only have cheapy's at the moment & the straps are a nightmare to get on.These are only for occasional use, Herbicide & one for stuff like Braco. I don't think I can justify Cooper Pegler for the amount of use it will get.What else do you guys use, is comftable & works well? Probably 15 Lt tank Cheers Neil

"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."
