Re: Snaar snaps: Village in Spring

As regards the Allen Mower.
Fight is an appropriate word.
As a teenager I was occasionally let loose with one of these whilst working on an estate in the Trossachs in my school holidays.
H & S wasn't invented or I would have used it as an excuse.
These things were lethal and temperamental.
Snatch clutch and clearing anything up to 2" diameter.
When I would finally get it to go it was definitely in command.
I hated them with a vengeance.
Still gives me the shakes just seeing one.
Thank goodness strimmers were invented.
