Garden machinery.


I was caught out 20 years ago and never forgot what I learned. Bought a strimmer, with the name of local garden machinery engineer on the paperwork as contact for repairs. It didnt work for long. Went to this engineer. He said he had never given his name, as this product was rubbish, it was made of ‘monkey metal’ . The screws wouldnt grip in the cylinder, and in fact this cheap supermarket had put him out of business as people bought there, and every day he had them coming to him for repair work, which he couldnt do. He sold quality products only and guaranteed them. He was very bitter.
Due to knee trouble I recently needed a petrol driven motor mower with a roller for my allotment path. Found the nearest Garden Machinery Engineers on the Internet, went to them. They had a reconditioned one at less than half the price of a new one, so well worth the journey to find the right place to buy from.
