Water in a Cage

Water CageBushfire is a real risk in Australia, and one of the rules is that when you are cutting the grass in a paddock, you’re supposed to have water on hand. So that if the blades hit a stone and create a spark, and if that spark starts igniting the dry grass, you can put it out straight away. Before it grows into a proper bushfire.

Until this week, this was a challenge because, although I have a perfectly adequate 12 litre sprayer, there is nowhere to carry it on my Toro zero turn Timecutter.

However, my friend Jeff, who knows how to do lots of things, including welding, has for a modest price knocked up a lovely cage which slots onto the back of my machine.

So now I can cut the grass in my paddock in compliance with the requirements. With water on hand. In a cage.

    Unfortunately there have been forest fires in the uk in recent days, due mainly to the amazingly unseasonal hot weather – including one in Ashdown Forest, East Sussex which was thankfully contained and extinguished quickly.
