From 10 month back here's a review of...mowers

OooH! I hope Steveh sees this, he loves lawn mowers
He should know that a twin blade rotary is usually for mulching, the clippings have a shorter length so can be left on the lawn, it returns nutrition to the lawn. The Hayter - I had one and my mother had two, we both found them unreliable , I don't think the Briggs and Stratton engine helped. Can't beat a Honda Mower , Mazda should take a lesson from them as my 14 year old Honda mower chassis shows no signs of rust.

You should make your way over to our neck of the woods Steve and visit this place: http://www.lawnmowerworld.co.uk/index.php It's only up the road in Southport, just a stonesthrow away from the Mazda maindealers :coffee:

I do like that car... However, it makes a total nonsense of driving an electric car at other times! It must do 12 m.p.g. in that traffic. I had a 318 Chrysler V8 and my father had a 360 c.i. and they were great, predictable cars for power oversteer highjinks but in heavy traffic a dozen miles to the gallon was normal.

Brilliant place it is too, run by a member of NWOC. He was on tv years back, can't remember the programme, he could recognise the make and model of a lawnmower just by looking at the cut of the grass. Amazing really.

Nice to see these old cars still being used but quite surprised that it passed with the hancuff, 'drift charm still attached. Hey ho.

Thank you! Jono. That was great!

I really enjoyed it... especially the problems they had. I understood them!

This has only just gone up so I'd give it a few minutes for the HD version to render.

I've always fancied one of those, Jono - although for me too expensive for an impractical, fair-weather toy.

It uses the 5-speed NC gearbox by all accounts :)

I'm actually stunned at the ineptitude shown here (for effect?) It was obvious from the get go the battery was screwed under load, should have been popped ot and load tested, easy enough to get an old battery to read 13v+ but it's load that tells.

Surely Jonny should now this with his own leccy sh!t mobile - respect to what it can di in terms of 1/4 mile times but leccy will always be leccy as proven here.
