Aunty is looking for a Merry Tiller too, but Worzel tends to be a bit grumpy  :roll:

so aunty is getting a rotavator,thats just cus you want to get into the man shed for a good nose around  :roll:  :wink:

should go in an astra van nathan on its side unless you can drop the handles(you can on some types) then it will stand up.

No Shaun,  Aunty doesn't want a rotovator, just a 'merry' tiller, but he's turned out to be a bit grumpy sometimes - especially when he's tilling  :roll:

And Aunty needs no excuse to inspect the Equipment Shed, so keep it tidy  :!:
