Practical and expensive solution to cutting slopes

Posted: 12/10/2015 at 18:35

I have cut many grass slopes but a lot depends on what you are cutting / how steep the slope is, then you would pick your machine. I used light 25cc strimmers ( which are probably the easiest to use on steep slopes)  50cc brush cutters  - lawnmowers with or without collecter or specially designed bank mowers. 

I wouldn't consider anything but for petrol machines, nylon line for strimmers 99% of the time very rarely I have ever had to use a blade on anything that 3mm nylon line wouldn't cut.

If you slip while working alone and break your leg for example that could be a problem.

garden news subscripbers normally only get one pack of seeds compared to magazine bought in tesco or asda for example, they were a discussion a while back on the forum about it.
