New mower time!

Hi guys. I've been in business 7 years and it appears to be time to buy a new mower. I've been using a Hayter 41 Pro roller and AS 420 Superclip mulching mower, the combo has worked well. But I managed to wreck the engine on the Hayter and it's £530 to replace, really should check the oil more often! So I'm thinking of getting a 4 wheeled collector rather than another roller as a more practical all rounder. The mulcher is great but some clients don't like it, if grass is damp like it often is…

Fence spike in clay

Hi all,I'm erecting a close board timber fence in clay soil. Due to the clay and poor drainage I'm thinking of using fence spikes. Would clay be suitable? Would it provide enough stability for a 1.8 mt high fence? I'm considering using 15cm wide boards with a slight gap to allow for expansion and wind to pass through as opposed to feather edge boards, any one else done this? Thanks in advance
