    Re: Quiet here lately......

    Happy New Year to all.
    2021 was a pretty good year for me personally. Scored a few new good contracts and Covid19 had very little effect on us here locally until a couple of weeks ago, when we had...

    Having a great season here so far.
    Had good rain through winter which kicked the grass along nicely when the warmer weather came. Then in Oct & Nov we've had excellent rain & the grass is going mad....

    Re: Stihl battery power

    Hi Geoff, Yes my Husky battery gear is into it's 4th season. The line trimmer has been faultless, but with the mad grass growth atm, it's struggling a bit.
    I heard that the multi head had a bit...

    I anyone is still out there?

    Went to the Stihl Shop yesterday & they had a brand new model of battery Kombi head. It's not on the AU website yet.

    Re: Hello

    Hi bb1. Yes it's been very quiet here for quite some time now.
    Seems like facebook is more popular these days. Found one mowing page there, but it doesn't do much for me.

    Re: Whipper Snipper Line

    Yeah Ian I noticed the different part numbers, but thought it might have been because the trailblazer is a 2lb spool & the new one is a 3lb spool.

    Anyway I used some yesterday and seems to be ok...

    Has anyone bought any new Trailblazer lately?
    I ordered a new spool & it arrived today, but it's not Trailblazer. It seems stiffer & harder, but the dealer assures me it is the correct code/part...

    Re: Best mower 2020??

    Yes it's heavy to lift, but still easy to manoeuvre.
    I could just lift the HRx & mulchmaster into the back of the ute, but not this one.

    Started making a ramp a little while ago as I don't have...

    Re: Best mower 2020??

    I bought a Masport 21" SP Contractor last week with B&S 850. I like it so far. It does everything well. 3 speed gearbox- 2nd gear is a brisk walk.

    The only thing I see that might be a problem is...

    Re: Walker ZTR

    I christened the Walker this morning on a rough commercial job. There wasn't a lot of grass to cut... just mostly weeds. It cuts & chops them up nice and fine, even side throwing.

    Still haven't...

    I only picked it up yesterday.

    Nothing to cut here ATM. I did 5 minutes today trying to mulch up some leaves at home but that's all. Didn't seem to have as much vacuum as I expected but I think...

    I got the MB19. Mulch or side throw.

    It's a new learning curve trying to steer the thing. :)

    Went & had a look at a Gravely zt hd today. They had a 48" on the floor, but they also do them in a 44". They are going to check availability of a 44" for me.

    Re: Walker ZTR

    My trailer is 7x4 Ian. The 2300Length is with a 48" deck, so I think the 42" might be a bit shorter. I asked this morning & they tell me it's ok to reverse on and the fold up the deck, so that...

    Re: Walker ZTR

    Thanks NLALM & Chris.
    I did demo a stander a while ago Chris, but I'd had enough of it after about hour. I think I'm too tall & too old.

    NLALM, how does the side discharge go in thick grass?...

    I need to update my Gravely Compact Pro 44" as it's got 1700 hours on it.
    Ordered a Ferris IS600 44" but none in AU & no more 44" coming.

    Re: Best mower 2020??

    The clips look a bit different to the model available in Aust. The AU version LB553Se goes down to 27mm.

    Digging up the old threads now.
    Made this up a few months ago to organise excess gear that I don't take out regularly.

    Just some ceiling tophat battens & #8 wire hooks.
