Old arm now fixed. There was a height adjuster here originally which proved unnecessary in use.


With use (that’s my R & D) I find that the 30” rotors are a bit much for the Fergie, especially if the grass is wet, and next time I would use 24” rotors instead reducing the cut to around 6ft which is still plenty.


and saw me using the mower. His curiosity led him to ask about the machine, where I got it from etc. and when I told him I/we’d made it from scrap he didn’t believe it especially when I said there was change from £300! His only comment was “Bugger me! We spend millions on R & D, you go down the junk yard, spend a tenner, come back here and knock out something that, albeit with a bit of refinement, we wouldn’t be too ashamed of!”


Today, the “Dagenham Dustbin” is almost extinct but at least three bits are still working; I’d better get down to the “spares” yard before the remainder are crushed, I’d hate to go through all that R & D again!


Photo below: Twenty years on the grass is much greener (same view as below) the machine is still working, so is the Fergie and so is that old boy driving despite the lack of belt guards!
