Nice garden there.

I have a really little lawn. It is too big to keep under control without a mower but it is really small to mow. My solution was to buy a mower which cost about GBP60, one of those electric ones they like here. It would cost that for a few months of lawn care.

I have a tiny lawn at home, takes no time at all with a push mower. Quite a bit larger lawn at the summer cottage, but I still use a push mower - I need the exercise Besides, it's still not very big, takes just a sweaty half hour to mow it.

The hedges, though, are kept under control by the use of power tools! Still do it myself, though. Yeah, I need the exercise

And it's not just something my wife says. I really do need the exercise

All day and no-one could answer the stories about lawn mowing.

Must get onto some other subject. Today I went to work late, at a time when last time that I went at that time, I was considerably delayed because it seemed every famer and every grandpa was out driving.

Which is why you need a tractor!

Of course, a tractor is a bit like a chainsaw. Even if you don't own a single tree, you still need a chainsaw.

And in the absence of a place to use a tractor get a Toorak Tractor.

Never! My 4x4 is well used and does not have a single straight panel.

Pretty good wheel travel.

Coming home tonight I got stuck behind a tractor towing a trailer driving at speeds between 25 and 35 mph in a 50mph zone for about 7 miles. A real pain. I wish they had a law that required people doing so much less than the speed limit to pull over at every rest area to let everyone else through.
