"I got some from https://www.ukcustomcovers.com on their eBay shop for my bench seat set up van and they are still ok 2.5 years later if not a little grubby and dusty. Fit well for all the bits around the seats and folding areas"

"No clue I’m afraid - I purchased whatever was listed on their website for my ground saws and they fit. 
Our pole pruners stay sharper for much longer than the ground saws (ms280 and ms360) as they aren’t used anywhere near the ground and are always…"

Graham Taylor replied to Ben Mallow's discussion Scarify before spray?
"I'd weedkill first... once the weeds are dying off nicely, then scarify.  If you scarify first, you may well not have any decent leafgrowth on the weeds for the selective to work."

Duncan McLaren replied to Edward baker's discussion What to wear while spraying
"Well there's a question I'm not too sure about and you wouldn't want to wear a knapsack sprayer with them.
But one thing I'm sure of is that when it's a warm clammy day and you've got 16 back courts to spray I wouldn't fancy changing disposable cove…"

Andrew Watts replied to Ben Mallow's discussion Scarify before spray?
"Ideally you'll want to do no weed control 2 months pre and 2 months post scarification/seeding. So doing weed control now would mean Scarify end october, so should be ok, but won't recover as much by Xmas if you scarify say mid sept. We don't tend t…"

I'm going to be applying a selectivie - most likely Mogul - to a clients lawn soon, as well as scarifying, before reseeding (once interval between spray and seeding is up). Should I apply the selective before scarifying or after?

"Bib 'n' brace oilskins can be useful in warmer weather if using a hand-sprayer. They give plenty of ventilation and can be used indefinitely if washed down after use."

"I can't comment on the pole saw but we use the Rotatech chains on our other Stihl chainsaws and in our opinion they seem to stay much sharper for much longer than the Stihl equivalents - and they are much cheaper too!"

"Along with wellies and correct nitrile gloves we would also recommend a green or blue suit for the reasons Gary's mentioned above!
For our spraying register we use the built in version Jobber offers which is dead easy to use too!"
