This year something broke in nature. That almost a month is such a sushie and streetness that the grass is yellowed and bored. For a whole month, I never got the trimmer. Then someone there pressed on the right lever there, sharply got cold and went rain — a monthly rate of precipitation fell in three days. Will not be surprised if in September we admire the first snow and skiing.
Because of the incessant rains, the grass in my site decided to put a personal record and get into the book of Guinies. Otherwise, soon to the greenhouse will have to make their way with the machete. In the meantime, everything is not lost, I decided to uncover your old trimmer and mowed the swirling vegetation.
The problem is only that, in addition to the site, it is necessary to ignore the local territory. It is full of stones, irregularities, some hardwood bushes, burdocks and burdocks, young piglets Karagach and American maple are growing. Especially getting Karagach and Kleon — one year will be pronounced and the next spring they swell into human growth.
All these jungle have to spend a pretty expensive fishing line. Yesterday, the rain gave a little to stay a little, I looked out the window, looked at the pure sky, smiling sunshine and understood … Jungle is called!
I admit honestly, mowing grass is not my favorite lesson. But this time I just wrained. For the whole plot enough of 40 minutes? Know only pull the fishing line out of the bobbin. But, when I went beyond the fence, I realized that the time would have to spend not just a lot, but a lot.
I began to mow, and almost nothing — they scored the strength, the fishing line just «whhats» trunks and that’s it. I had to take a bobbin with a fishing line and wind the old steel disk, produced by a unknown Chinese company.
Only …. only he saved. Years affected the endless battles with large thickets. I already wanted to go for a saw when new neighbors arrived to the house. They looked at my torment, they whispered and the head of the family sentenced him out of the garage …
No, not so … it!
Homemade disk for trime. A neighbor operates on a large machine-building enterprise and men in the workshop cut out of durable steel knives for mowers.
Knife itself — an exact copy of the knife of Huskvarna 300 Multi. The outer diameter is 30 cm. The inner hole for the shaft is 25.4 mm. Three cutting beams with double-sided sharpening.
True there is one difference — it is thicker than one and a half times. Traditionally, knives for mowers are made of steel 1.2 — 1.6 mm thick. To combat a thick shrub of this little.
In addition, thin steel when hitting a stone, metal, bricks are short and starts to vibrate, which badly affects the instrument. Drives more or less acceptable quality should have a thickness of at least 1.8 mm, the thicker — better.
The outer diameter should be at least 255 mm. Such a disk will cope well not only with grass, but also weeds, burdocks and other major plants.
Some manufacturers increase the number of knives and attack the hard-alloy nozzles. Yes, the grass is cut such discs well, but when you get on the stones, the nozzles take off with all the resulting … little pleasant metal in a piece of metal.
But the self-made three-grade disc thickness is 2.5 mm. From high strength steel — just a dream. The main thing is to sharpen it in more than two sides — which was done in the garage on the sharpe.
Of course, not everyone has acquaintances on a machine-building enterprise, I can say lucky. But, if there is an opportunity, ask for familiar tracks, let out of 2.5 — 3 millimeters will cut the disk of such a form. I declare responsibly — it cuts everything: grass, shrub, lops, burdock, low trees. Even in the ground is bungled if the burdock needs to cut off right at the root.
What do you kosite the grass at home?
