It really won’t mow itself – Where to get the tools?

By johnboy 16 December 2008 50

There’s no shortage of emos around here, and both Kevin Rudd and Barack Obama have been elected.

Despite all this the lawn stubbornly refuses to mow itself. The landlord is getting antsy and the housemates can offer no guarantees that nasty things do not lurk in the tall grass.

So I need a brush-cutter, a petrol one.

Any recommendations on where to hire one?

How about endangered grassland threatened by increased flight path noise pollution.

Or release a few legless lizard and declare it an endangered grassland….

Why not leave it as it is and use it as a drop off point for Revolve.

Don’t buy anything Bosch. IIRC they have just retrenched a couple of hundred Aussie employees. Make Bosch suffer.

Aussie Junk and Revolve are great for getting stuff cheap. Canberrans chuck out too much good stuff imho. That said, my backyard looks like that and I am the landlord. My mower has died. Where can I get it fixed for a very cheap price? Anyone?

So THAT’S where you’ve been JB?! I could tell this jet was flying without a pilot over the last little while!

My ex-housemate used a Samurai sword when the lawn got too out of hand.

Thanks all, in the end a friend has lent me a Ryobi brushcutter which has done a sterling job.

half the job done today, will hack the other half tomorrow.

Can I just say…don’t buy Bosch – anything! I’ve never had much luck with Bosch stuff, and most recently I bought a sander out of desperation and it’s busted after only a few hours of use! Yes, it has a 2 year warranty, but it needs to be returned to the factory – and that ain’t gonna help me get my project finished in time for Christmas.

Regardless, I hate having to return something which is pretty much brand new, it sucks!

How about cutting a white horse into it like Uffington?
