After two and a bit weeks away, my yard looked looked like it hadn't been mowed for over fortnight.
Im pretty impressed with the twisty 3.2mm Lawnkeeper whipper snipper cord I picked up from Bunnings. Makes a kind of VRRISHHHHHH noise. Heaps better than plain old round cord.
Gave it a spin today in 35deg heat clearing our 80m driveway which is(was) lined with 2m tall grass.didnt skip a beat, except the line it was loaded with is a pretty light gauge, kept having to pull more out.
(The line was the twisty type, & made the satisfying swisssshhh)
