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.

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.

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

Hayter 41 pro.

Hi, purchased a hayter 41 pro 2 months ago and I thought I'd share my thoughts. For a small machine it's heavy, but I guess that's necessary for a roller mower. It 'feels' bigger than a 41 to use due to the solid build. Has a Honda engine which I know will last and start reliably, It's quick, at full tilt it's hard to keep up but you can feather the drive lever to your desired speed easily. Gives a lovely finish. The grass sn't thick yet, and I haven't tried it on wet grass as we have had…

"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."
