do you carry a wheel barrow on top of your vehicle ?

Probably sounds daft but i have to travel with a full load and my wheel barrow nearly fills up my small van . The roof bars are too far apart to accept the length of my wheelbarrow so i am thinking about first securing a ladder on the top and then securing the wheel barrow to the ladder .I have never seen a wheel barrow upside down on top of a vehicle i suspect air current might force it up in the air and it will blow off but i might be overthinking . any guidance much aprreciated .

Cutting council verge for residential client

I have a client who's asked me to cut an area of grass next to her property that belongs to the council. She's been asking for years for them to cut it regularly, but as it stands it's probably done 1-3 times a year. She's asked me to cut it, and has said she will send an invoice to the council for my time. Can't say I'm really on board with that idea. What are the rules on cutting grass on council land? Would it be acceptable to cut it if she were to foot the bill herself? Or would you just…

Ginkgo Biloba - Damaged

HiI have a customer that has a Ginkgo Biloba in their front garden. However, it looks like the tree has been ringed by strimmer damage and due to this the trunk tapers in at the base. It has started to recover, and leaves are growing back. There were some branches but 2/3rds of their length were dead, so I have trimmed these back to the healthy parts. The tree basically looks a bit like a flagpole with a a couple of stunted branches half way up. What is the best thing to do here? I would guess…

Heavy duty brushcutters

Morning AllI have just taken on a new client, who is a property developoer, with two large sites. Both are overgrown fields and I am considering a heavy duty brush cutter to deal with the areas where the flail won't reach. Mostly brambles. Any recommendations? I have been looking at Stihl and Husky but there are very few reviews.Jonathan

New Ego Tools 2021

Heard some interesting rumours today, from a good source I must add, Ego will be releasing the Nexus power station in the UK early next year, along with a cut-off saw (Stihl saw), top-handled chainsaw and telescopic hedge-trimmer! If at least one of those comes to fruition I'll be happy.

Decent leaf grabs

Has anyone successfully bought any decent long-handles leaf grabs suitable for us professionals? I've had no luck so far! Bought another pair today, called "Grab-o-saurus". They got a good review on the original LandsacpeJuice website and they were only £12.99, compared to the £24.99 at the time of that review. But... they're useless! They've no gripping power at all, barely pick up a 'pile' of leaves, and quite uncomfortable. I used them for 10 mins then chucked them in the back of the Landy,…

Kazz / Danarm Pro roller mower .

Hi I've just picked up a Kazz / Danarm Pro 53 roller high speed model ( 2017 ) from my local dealer today , they were selling them cheap so thought why not even though I don't have to many gardens for them. Anyway all seem too be well with it but the roller I think , do the two rollers move independently like a differential ? I thought they would do especially when turning, feels like I am having to shove it round when turning are is this normal ? The drive engages fine , I haven't used it on a…

"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."
