    Msa 220 pro chainsaw with 3/8 chain looks good

    Rma765v mower and new backpack battery that can be used in the mower or on back to power cable operated machines
    compare this to a petrol backpack blower. 21 NM blowing force. Air Volume (m³/h) ?? Max Air Speed (m/sec) ???

    The Stihl shop was really keen even though I said I only wanted a whippy he said they would try to get all their demo stuff for me to try. Take what I need for a few days


    1 - 0 at the moment
    Pallenc left me a message on my phone 5 weeks after I enquired! Hate to need service!!!!!

    Blowing force in the best way to compare blowers :

    Newton force is the number you want to look for when comparing blowers. Because of the way it is tested, it takes the effect of both the MPH and CFM to give you one number representing the total amount of force a blower produces. With a simple “bigger is better” kind of measurement, it’s much easier to see which blower is more powerful.


    Threre's no battery blower out that can beat a proper backpack yet. For comparison the BR800 is 41 Newtons

    But 21 is very good for a handheld ... for comparison the BG86 is 15

    hope im not an expert
    gets a bit repetitive... can see how a forum can be beneficial in certain ways as you can keep the conversation going like this one... without a new post asking the same .... at least not as often

    there's a lot of "this is the only way to do it" type posts

    I'm mainly surprised how many mowing guys get offended when customers ask for a discount (judging by the amount of screenshots).... just say no and move on lol

    If potential clients keeping asking for a discount simply increase your prices and give them one
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you
