Degree Research

Hi there guys image My name is Max, and I am studying product design at University. I am in my final year and am currently mid way through my research phase.

I am looking at improving and re designing garden power tools such as the chainsaw, hedge trimmer, leaf blower etc and am looking at several possible routes i can head towards.

  • Thanks a lot guys, really appreciate it image Another quick question, what tasks do you often find difficult in the garden, trimming/pruning big thick branches perhaps? using a heavy hedge trimmer? the more answers the better?

    thanks again.

    The thing I find most difficult is keeping tree roots from invading my veg patch Grrrrrrr!

    The thing is I love having the trees as well. image

    Done.

     

    Constructive criticism from the teacher in me which I hope you don't mind me making -Two spelling mistakes which you should correct before submission Question 6 - sheers should read shears. Question 10 the spelling of 'existing' is incorrect and I also think you should rework the final phrase in the question.

    Good luck with your project.

    The biggest difficulty I find is climbing a ladder and  trying to balance with a very heavy petrol trimmer, saw one with an extra long cutting blade which would be great for my wide hedges but was way too heavy unfortunately.
