"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."

Etesia Hydro 80 engine issue, any ideas

Hi, I have a 2004 hydro 80, had it for 18 months and has been great. Start of last month it cut out on a job after about 20 mins work. After a few minutes it ran fine again for a while ten started running rough, surging etc both when cutting and just travelling, (though more when cutting) sometimes i’ll get 30mins from it other times just 10.  Did a service, oil, air filter, oil filter, fuel filter, and spark plugs. Checked that the fuel pump was pushing fuel through and removed carb to check…

Blowers Battery v Petrol

So my Stihl handheld blower is dying of old age -  at least 20 years :)   I have a Stihl backpack blower so the handheld only does light work.  I am trying to decide what to replace it with as it's only used for a quick tidy up eg after mowing. I could buy a BG 56 as a straight replacement £190 Or a KM BG attachment £150 Or a battery BG 56  £175 including battery & charger. Any thoughts or experiences ?

Anyway, the weather has been pretty awful recently, and cutting the grass in the wet is getting such a difficult chore and a complete pain in the…

Van insurance & hazardous goods

My insurance is up for renewal and it dawned on me that since starting the business and getting my first van (9yrs), I have always said no when it comes to declaring hazardous goods. I remember with my first van insurance, i enquired about it and they said a couple of jerry cans of fuel doesn't count as hazardous goods, and since then thats how I've left it. Today while on the phone, it came into my head that maybe i should check with them before renewing, and it turns out that 5 litres is the…
