  1. Garyjp

    Brush cutters

    i have used the back pack, i cant see the point to be honest. the harness that comes withe 545 and 555 is superior to the 553 unit. its also very heavy and awkward. the vibs are much higher, its more expensive, awkward to store and transport as the drive does not easily disconnect. stick with the 555/545, much better!
  2. probably just needs a tune. mole valley will not have pdi'd it except screw on the trimmer head and guard. it will meed to go back either to them to sort out unless u know someone who is handy at tuning a machine. it will have limiter caps so these will need to be pulled back to adjust to a richer setting.
  3. possibly the instructor meant it was ok for training/test? Most regions are very strict on the Go/RT compliance.
  4. out of curiosity, i tried working in a jacket with saw protection in the arms and shoulders, lasted all of about 2 mins before the heat was so bad, i thought i was going to pass out lol! im in camp type A!!
  5. Annoyingly, the metal was originally called aluminum...british/european scientists wanted to rename it in line with other metals like sodium, magnesium etc so we called it aluminium! My brother in law is american, when he came over to the uk in the early days of marriage to my sister he shouted down the stairs to my sis... "have you seen my khaki pants?" we pissed ourselves laughing much to his confusion.
  6. ...and then charge you 5 x price of other fans 😜
  7. mr dyson seems to have figured out a solution with his fans!
  8. Who remembers the hoffmans mechanic from series 1? nice bloke, crippled with a dodgy back, in case u missed the episode recently, they announced he died suddenly. at least he isnt suffering now.
  9. i love it! one of the best shows on tv 👍
  10. I have speed cam alerts on satnav(tomtom) but its clearly not very good lol. 🚔
  11. Mines a bit too quick...just got a letter from the local plod, i owe them £100 dammit
