"In the UK Irish guys were accused on being the sellers of dodgy Makita tools out of the back of vans, in California it was Mexicans.
Same tools, same type of operation, thousands of miles apart and possibly the same types of prejudices."

Anthony Toop replied to Charlie Manton's discussion Pressure washing your kit/machinery, who does it?
"I just use a garden hose 2 or 3 times a year, to rinse down the mower, maybe a bit of degreaser spray, wipe off/dry with kitchen towel/rag and that does the trick. I do re-oil the moving parts and the cables each time it's washed as well, not just…"
