It’s not just rotovators a few years back I bought a very old huge atco villiers mower one of those that you can attach a seat on rollers too it even had a kick start. After tinkering with it for a few hours in the front garden it started, joy of joy I thought. 

But being a bear of very little brain I yanked the lever to engage the clutch and under estimated the power of this beast as it shot off down the council path with me chasing it just catching it in time before my neighbour’s cars had stripes.   

On returning to my house the biggest shock was about to be realised nooooo…  it was too wide to fit down the alley way to the back garden by three inches and too heavy to tilt it  :(   With heavy heart it was sold on, sniff sniff wibble wibble.
