"Ok thanks for those two ideas. It sounds like I would be better removing a few whole branches rather than titivating with the ends too much, but you also think it's growing too low, so I'll have a  closer look when I'm there."

"That sounds like a toy, get the HSA 86, with AP batteries. One battery lasts a full day for me, as it's only trigger time using power. I started off with one 4 years ago & now most of my kit is battery powered."

"My neighbour has the smaller Stihl petrol cutter & I found that too heavy.  Then I discovered that the battery version ( 2.9kg excluding battery) wasn't much lighter.  So it had to be 18 volt.
People complain that the Combi is heavy but I find it…"

Yes, I pretty much agree with you and have heard the same about the height adjustment on the Westermann. I see others have used the cylindrical brushes, such as the Stiga, and seem to do a half decent job but I feel the sweeper…"

Tennis court moss killer

I've been asked to quote for treating some light moss on 3700sqm of tarmac tennis courts. For smaller domestic jobs I have always used an acetic acid cleaner to good affect (eg. Algon), however, I am a bit worried about the lingering vinegar smell…
