    Fings wot broke

    unusual one today went to change the pin and bushes in the end of thr dipper on my digger and the pin was split in the middle not sure how this could have happened as the break is almost exactly in the middle as an owner driver I am never sore on it and the bushes were not seized or worn and were still tight in the end of the dipper

    The Lidl Florabest grass strimmer....

    I have one of these heads and the first thing to do is drill a couple of shallow holes to take the spanner that yu use to take the nut off a disc grinder as the head self tightens quite hard
