    One of my customers pleaded with me to bring my mower when I next did her windows. I am trying to stop doing stuff like that, as its a right hassle getting the mower in the car, plus I need to concentrate on my windows as i am always behind. But being a softy, I decided to pack the mower in the back........I was somewhat shocked at the state of the lawn!!

    Had a few jobs like this recently. A garden like that needs a strimmer, not a lawnmower. I hope you didn't damage your mower on anything hidden in that grass.

    The mower is a beast and took out a few hidden plant pots!. To be honest, the grass was way too wet to cut, but it was today or never.

    It looks like a good mower, is it a mountfield?

    yeh me found it a pain putting the mower in the car....and bloomin grass bits everywhere...but its only in the summer so i do get a rest...not had one that bad mr taytay...thats more a jungle...
    my mowers like its owner a bit dodgy at times....on one lawn the bloomin wheel kept fallen off...i think i sorted that now....and on the same job it just decided to pack up and i ended up finishing it with the owners mower...i wasnt asked back there thank god...nice though they were i am not keen on :specs:specs:specs people watching me....grrrrr

    i now do one just around the corner....no one in ..money under mat....but my mower is defo on its last legs...prefer cleaning windows to anything else but sometimes its a change..:)
