"I have a honda hrx537 hy and weibang 53asd
Can't go wrong with either.

Impulse buys/ gadgets that turn out to be useful!Bought a Stihl catcher that is easy to put on/ remove.  It just slides on and off.    Helps when doing tops of hedges to bring down debris.  Would be perfect if longer.

"I think the lack of mulching puts me off. Having used a dedicated mulcher I've come to regard it as essential for the health of the lawns now. I think if I was going to buy a machine without mulching it would have to be a roller."

"Thanks for your reply Peter. I've been out to a couple of Honda dealers today. I liked the relative lightness of the HRX 476, but was worried about how robust it was in comparison to the HRD 536 HX and Weibang. I'm also still unsure of the benefits…"

Vic 575 replied to James's discussion What is average cost for mowing a garden?
"At those very low rates Lee, I could find you a lot of work. I effectively pay my strimmer man between £40 and £55 per hour [price per job so the faster he works the higher his hourly rate] and he is using my equipment and fuel."
