It seems John Deere are looking into it. The thing the greenies are blind to is yes the vehicle is 'green' but it's running on power from a power station somwhere and will never be fully green...

The Old Soap Box
20/11/17 09:49 PM
Actually Governments are endorsing redevelopment and reducing urban sprawl. This is all because they don't want to spend money on new infrastructure, like more power, water, roads etc. State Governments are now over ruling Councils and their planning codes so as to allow more sub...

Reel-Type Mowers
19/11/17 11:36 AM
Thanks for the info BB. I've had previous experience with the Kirby and found the Briggs to be a better option. Availability of parts being the major one. Plus already having the Briggs helped the decision. Perhaps I will have to consider a different option for the second machin...

Question On Scott Bonnar Cylinder Mowers
19/11/17 10:50 AM
Hi Damian, Lets put it this way, the money you spent bought a Model 45 and the 33 was tossed in with the deal. Personally I wouldn't buy a 33 but that's me. There are no parts available for the 33 and basically no parts correlate between the 33 and 45. Also the 33's as much as...

They are all just pushed in a corner gathering dust waiting for me to get around to them one day which will probably never happen. I know that with at least 4 of them I could mow a lawn tomorrow, the fifth one has bearing noise but it runs ok. And then there is another one with t...

Question On Scott Bonnar Cylinder Mowers
