Hi folks. Any ideas on how to sort out Reindeer hoof and Sleigh indentations that I found on my lawn this morning!!!  LOL. Happy Christmas to you all. Rob

There are some 'Budding' greenkeepers over on the Greens v Ransomes thread who may help but any deposits left by the reindeer should be good for your roses.

Happy Christmas all.

Rob, Santa may have landed on your lawn because you've been a naughty boy. He usually lands on the roof as far as I'm aware.

Hi Clive. Had to Google it, Comet? I dropped lucky on the mower front for Xmas, picked up a Webb 2 Speed on the 23rd and my Best Man and his wife gave me a Webb Miniature that a mate of theirs had found in his shed, well pleased!! See you at MK in 2020, all the best. Rob

Excellent, I have been searching for the Webb 2 speed I had, think it must have gone at some stage? I'm picking up a trailer load next Sat so may be some interesting stuff. Bit more time now, as my month of elfing has come to an end.

Hope you get some good stuff Clive. When you get a chance might you be able to have a look at my post under Webb 2 Speed. Cannot see any 2 Speed images with the same handles that are on mine. No hurry though. Cheers. Rob

Hi Rob,  my namesake, Clive from Essex has one with the straight handles same as yours, they would have been on the early ones, I will check my brochures etc when I get a minute.

Thanks Clive, very much appreciated. I do like to try and get a date of production for the mowers I get and if possible some advertising literature/brochure that may have been produced for them. Again, many thanks.

Deep indentations = weight of lawnmowers delivered = no cure, other than another brandy and mincepie.

Enjoy them! Happy Xmas to all.
