    Anyone got a better way to make the Honda Catcher bag last longer?
    Im replacing these bags all the time due to rips and wholes from crap. Mainly under the bag's handle.
    I was thinking of placing a piece of perspex / plastic sheet under the catchers handle.

    Any good ideas for time saving for 2 operators when mowing a lawn?
    1 whipper snipping perimeters
    1 mowing but starting in the middle working towards the outside?
    I'm trying to work out a better approach tho.
    Because after whipper snipping - it has to be blown onto the grass to be mowed.
    Then mowed

    When I was operating I would grab the whipper snipper as soon as we pulled up and head for the back yard, my offsider would unload the mower and blower and bring it out the back, he would blow behind me and then mow (if you mow strips instead of rectangles then once one side of lawn is whippered and blown then you can mow), I would then move onto the sides and front and when finished would get blower and blow whippered area, then I would head out back and blow again. We would swap jobs every lawn. Being boss you could pull rank and just do the whippering and blowing at end of job. I used to enjoy mowing though so I liked to swap.
    My problem came with not being able to find someone reliable, in the end I went back to one man and my wife used the rideon to help me out on big jobs, I used to drop her off on the other side of town and she would mow all the lawns, mainly back lawns of jobs and then go home and I would follow and whipper snip, blow and mow the rest. Worked well for us.
