interesting . We've always hired a digger when we needed one as I figured it was the cheaper option.
Last year we hired a 10 tonner. It had asthma ..... and shut down as soon as the Nor'West blew and the motor got hot, which was quite often. It also had a problem with it's guts as it had no lift stamina .
We did a lot of work with it for a month. Got it stuck quite a few times as it sank into bog holes .....
We were sat having lunch beside the road back in the spring when the digger owner stopped for a chat. A year later...... He wanted to give us the bill for fixing the digger.
I said I was happy to pay ..... but to split the bill with the other twenty people that had hired it since we had....
Haven't seen the bill yet, which is a shame as I could use it again.
I still hanker for one of my own.
TommyDave .... the hareses are a prebait to. monitor the situation. The wasps are hammering the honey shed and our overalls as we sit in the late summer sun with an afternoon cup of tea.
They also quite like the honey water traps around the smoko room .... but they seem quite fickle when it comes to protein.
We never had much luck with the vespex .... I am wondering if there is a short window of opportunity ?
