    Re: Post Equipment Pics here

    I only use it on acreage/schools. The lowest I cut is 2.5". Mostly 2.75".
    Even the 44" that I use on some residentials never sees 1". Only a very odd one gets cut at 1.5", and most at 2". Half acres...

    Re: Where are they now>?????

    Hi Andy, I think you were one of the first to welcome me when I first joined.

    Yes the $600 by lunchtime was industry standard, and soon after if you didn't have a Malloo pulling your trailer you...

    Re: Where are they now>?????

    Hi Greenie, I started about the same time as you. After getting shafted by droughts & floods in the pastoral industry for most of my life, I started mowing/gardening so that I could keep getting...

    Re: Coronavirus + Business + You

    Hi Geoff, Yes I think I'll go with the quarterly estimate.
    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I use quarterly comparison/estimate I should get the assistance for April onward.
    Whereas if I go...

    Re: Coronavirus + Business + You

    Thanks Ian. I just read that up and it looks like you can use an average monthly turnover figure to compare to. (Averaged over the previous 12 months). The drought/bushfire exceptions only come into...

    Re: Coronavirus + Business + You

    I've just had a look back, and because 2019 was so poor for me due to the drought, my 2020 figures can't show a 30% fall so far.
    Because the tourist destinations are closed, I won't have many...

    Re: Coronavirus + Business + You

    GST will probably go up, and at the same time they might well reduce the threshold down to $25k- $30k turnover.

    Re: Post Equipment Pics here

    Scomo is letting us write off 150% on equipment purchases, so it's ok now Freddy. :) Even though I don't have a tax problem... it's still ok.

    The old one blew a hydro/wheel motor and was going to...

    Re: Stihl battery power

    Actually I didn't even check. The shop told me they charged the battery when I bought the 85. Maybe it wasn't fully charged. Then I used it for 20mins a few days before, so probably lucky to get as...

    Re: Stihl battery power

    I ended up buying both the HLA65 & 85. Used them both on a bigger job this morning & all went well. I had one small Duranta hedge left to do and I ran out of battery.

    Re: Gravely parts Australia

    Masport Australia is the new Ariens/Gravely distributer in AU so I imagine any Masport dealer should be able to source spare parts.

    I get any Kawasaki or Hydrogear parts from any mower shop. Can...

    I have the Rover 960 for the few lawns that I catch. At present, mowing at 10 days max and try to organise to catch them after about 11am.

    Re: Stihl battery power

    I put in an order for a HLA85. Going to try to use it for my everyday hedger.


    Tossed up between the hla65 and the kombi kma130r. I think the 65 would have been just a bit short for some of my...

    Re: thing that make me laugh

    I went into the rural supplies yesterday morning to buy 5 litres of KambaM. Couldn't find it, so the salesman said I'll see if any out back.
    As I was waiting, 2 other lawnies arrived and made a...

    Re: Drought affecting business?!

    I just mowed this one again for the first time since the end of October.
    Had a bit of rain for January, but the response is slow.
    I mowed this at full speed overr most of the area today.

    Are you having belt issues with the Gravely Paul? Mine seem to last well. I change them at 500 hrs but they don't show any signs of breaking. Mines got a hex belt for the main deck belt & a cogged...

    I cut a bit off the brass coloured arbor and it looks like it should tighten up now without the black spacer. (I don't have the new base plate so can't...

    Thanks NLALM. I think I get what you are talking about.

    I wonder if you could drill out some of the arbor threads so it clears the splines. There is a chrome coloured arbor with the same thread,...
