The Ryobi RLT30CET petrol strimmer arrived today courtesy of Screwfix. It was on special offer there and came with a free pruning attachment, so it was exceptional value (the pruning attachment alone was worth around £40). What a beast-of-a-tool – now all I need to do is assemble it!
Update 17.45: David popped round (at my request) to check everything was in the right place and I’d mixed the fuel and oil correctly. Lift-off, it’s working fine – but the battery needs a good charge overnight.
Ann had a successful shop in London and I acquired some nice new t-shirts and one for business as a result. Her mobile went flat so she got a taxi back from the station and was back earlier than I expected – just before 3pm.
