Hi Drewebb

Thanks for the link.

I have bought a Grillo and a Heavycut slasher so I am good for toys for a while.

Regards

ours is second hand

attachicon.gifIMG_1157 rotate.JPG

 

edit - this turned up last week, no way! He is meant to be retiring, 3 ladder falls in the last 2 years and now he wants to be Icarus! We have already arranged sale of it to a roofing plumber. R and DJ

Interesting, Im about to do my biggest hedge (Its a monster) next week in Frankston South.

It takes me about 6 days & is up to 7m high, I can't get a cherry picker in.

I would have been keen to hire it from you if you were interested but, looks like you've already sold it ?

Oh well, suppose I could ring the mob in the link & have a yak with them.

Even still, I'll have to check the access again, 1300 being the machines width, Im still not sure it will fit.

Thanx for posting this up Grae.

 

Cheers Fred.

Might be alright  as a start up, price isnt bad, pity they have no stock.

These are junk, I bought one for home use a while back.  The pole connectors are just garbage, I spent more time trying to connect the pole together than I ever did using the tool, which wasn't very long cause the motor died after less than 10 hours of use.  Also when extended the pole is extremely flexible/weak and wobbles all over the place, pretty dangerous.  Avoid at all costs.

 

I bought one of the trade tools ones instead (except via ebay which was cheaper for the identical one).  It uses a telescopic pole which is far superior, engine starts first pull.  Only used  less than 10 times but no complaints so far, only thing it is very heavy.  Ok for the occassional quick trim but if you do a lot of this work I'd go one of the battery tools for sure.

Although I might invest some share money in companies that make crash helmets!

Major issues with balance (and hence vibrations)

a wee bit heavier than 5mm poly line and most of us have trouble spinning 3.7+mm

I doubt the gearbox would last the 200

I wouldn't like to put one on my whipper - what Grae said plus load/shock to skew gears and head bearings - but your idea sounds OK - it's belt drive to a ball or roller bearing mounted spindle isn't it?
