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?

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?

"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!"
