I must be losing the plot
#1
Having used many electrical garden aids over the years mowers, strimmer's etc without any problem. Yesterday I decided to trim the hedge, finished my side without any issue. I then thought I'd be a good neighbour and do the other side. I was working away and the hedge cutter stopped  Blush I stood there pressing the switch many times before I realised I'd cut through the cable. laugh It doesn't mater how careful you are accidents happen at any time.

Yikes ! Go careful Zen Man. x
I never make the same mistake twice. I do it at least five or six times, just to make sure !

Ahh...I've done that twice - thank goodness for circuit breakers! I now get someone else to cut my privet hedge - much safer that way....

Frightening - I do not like electrical items outside.  Nearly all of our equipment is petrol driven as they are used quite a way from the nearest electric point.  The only electric item we have is an electric chipper and I can't do much harm with that.  (Not yet anyway!!)

I don't have a lawn mower or strimmer anymore as I don't need them. I do have circuit breakers in the garage and brick built store. With an extension cable I can reach most places outside, not that I have a lot to do now. I did have to laugh at myself standing there pressing the switch on the hedge cutter, before the penny dropped as to what had happened. I have a chipper too, but haven't used that in an age. Most stuff garden waste wise goes in the recycling bin so the chipper is redundant. My garden vac/ blower  I use a lot in the Autumn .

We use the chipper a lot as we are always cutting back trees in the summer.  We use the chips for the hens runs in the winter when they start to get over wet
