    Seem to be out of stock everywhere, I use a GTM elephant trunk that does a similar job to the easy lift if that's any help.

    • I've rang all 4 uk suppliers today, non of them can get hold of one,   I've  emailed easy lift themselves and am waiting on a reply, , I'd be happy to order one fro America if need be, but never bought anything like that before, so not sure how it works?  I've looked at the GTM unit, looks good, but the last 2 seasons I have knackered my shoulder at the end of the year, so really want one that takes all the weight of the tool, thanks

  • Very occasionally one will appear on eBay. I hope you manage to get one. I have had mine for several years now. I can tell you that it will change your life. The tool is indeed weightless. I use mine with both the hedge cutter and the long reach hedge cutter. All I have to do is to ‘steer’ a weightless machine. I have never understood why all pro gardeners don’t have one.

    • Thanks, Sounds perfect that, it would give my shoulder a rest and time to repair, I will keep checking eBay, and see what comes from contacting them direct.

  • Pjl allorts sell the elephant harness. I've brought a compactor plate and rotovator from them, well happy with those. The website's  difficult to navigate, but just saw some on there.

    • Thanks, think I'll hold out for an easy lift though

    We've Husqvarna equipment on back order since January and we've repeatedly asked for updates and it seems 'BRExit/Shipping/stuck in containers/Covid' are popular answers given for delays.

    Me ? I'm a little sceptical and believe sales forecasts were downgraded worh overseas suppliers and they have been caught on the hop.
