    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    Re: Stihl battery power

    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,...

    I mowed my first green grass since July yesterday. A small area was lucky enough to be under 2 storms of 10-15mm, but the growth is wilting already.

    It seems a bit strange Chris. The thing has burnt out 3 motors, but has never showed an overheat on the diagnostic tool. Apparently the sensors are at the battery end.

    I got it back yesterday...
