    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Perhaps there is some kind of medical thing like that already B3, or a weapon. I definitely want one.

  • Electric weed zapper. A hot needle thing that you could insert into the centre of a lawn or paving weed
    Sounds very interesting! I've only seen one that use heat/hot air https://www.thompson-morgan.com/p/garden-gear-weed-burner/G0936TM?source=google-prodex&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIqaORiYes3gIVBLXtCh171wIEEAQYASABEgJLT_D_BwE

    Well having done a quick search, electric wheelbarrows already exist, but they look pretty clunky and possibly hard to manoeuvre around corners, raised beds etc. And they are £700!! Sometimes you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, so to speak, just improve on an existing product and ideally make it more affordable for the masses.

    Electric weed killers also already exist (aka weed zapper):

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Well it's not a gardening tool but here in Calgary we do get heavy snow falls. I'm no spring chicken any longer and every winter I feel that shoveling snow for several elderly people in my area. Instead of abandoning them I went and bought a snow blower. I can't hardly wait to use it. lol

    That’s some serious kit, Jonny, I am sure it will be very satisfying to whizz through all that snow!

    That looks like a ferocious piece of kit, with a price tag to match!

    Anyone seen Alien? You know that robot suit she wears in the loading bay that’s like a transformer...I want one of those! A pared down version I can hang in the shed that will allow me to lift heavy loads.....bionic arms!
