I was wondering if anyone runs a pto post basher on the back of their alpine tractor? I have been asked by a number of customers if I can install/ replace stock fencing at their properties once the ground dries up a bit and am inclined to take on the work if I can match an implement to my existing tractor. most of the runs are fairly short (+- 200m) and a little fiddly so not well suited to a full size contractor set up. what are people’s experience with the smaller post bashers? Can they stomach strainers and even gate posts? Any recommendations or advice welcome.
Hi I run a company called EPM and we have been asked by a managing agent to quote for the trimming of a few hedges at some apartment blocks where we do the communal cleaning. We normally just do the regular grass cutting at these places, but I want to start doing more of the general garden maintenance The tops of the hedges in question are just reachable with a step ladder, and are about 4 feet wide. I need to buy just one hedgetrimmer that will not only do this, but will trim most hedges I might encounter. I'm wondering whether a pole trimmer might be the best type to get. I've also seen hedgetrimmers with the throttle at the rear and a handle half way up the blade. Which size and type would be the best all rounder to buy? Any advice is welcome. Cheers
