    First time this has ever happened to me, got a text off a client asking can I mow before the 22nd, he lives in Singapore, yes I can do that no problem , ok my new Mercedes is in the driveway you will have to move it the keys are ...... this is how to start the car and put it in gear , cool .

    Now I have never driven a merc before does amg mean it goes faster ????? And also should I steal the car........... what do you guys think...... I'm just thinking the chances of pulling chicks in this thing are probably better than the ute...........

    He can probably track the Merc from Singapore so better not take it too far.

    But make sure you take some pics of you in the drivers seat & maybe a mower in the boot and explain to the ladies that it's your regular work vehicle. That should still pull a few.

    I have a customer who's in Thailand for 3.5 months and said mow it three times whilst away. So visits are far apart.
    He rings me last week last to increase the number of mows as he was told grass is too high with all the rains.

    BUT NO Merc to shift here, just long grass.
    Cheers Garry

    Never driven one either! How about a road test review!

    Reminds me about a mate who was with his boss 30 yrs ago driving some sports car - cant recall what it was.
    His boss asked him if he wanted to drive and "feel" it so he did! Got it up over 200kph while his boss was turning white in the passenger seat

    35 degrees and I text a client to ask if they would like their lawn mown after 5:30,they say yes and I think damn I would just like to go home so I get there and mow the front walk into the smallish back and the self propelled on the Chonda dies, and why you ask does this make me happy because i realise that if the client hadn;t said yes the drive wouldn't have died until today when my 1st lawn is twice the size,15 minutes from home and I have to have it done by a certain time so the client can leave for work,it's also the 1st of 6 in the area that I do before i get close to home again so if it had died this morning I would have lost close to 30 minutes just in travelling
    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
