Mad respect.
Used to be a 'hod carrier' back in the day of being young and in shape! That mixer brought back some of those memories. :censored:
Glad to be on this side of it.

Just to make it a bit more depressing....theres no rear access and no easy access from the road so when say, a pallet of 90 blocks turn up on the pavement at the top of the drive its...

1. Walk down the driveway.
2. Walk through the garage
3. Down a steep flight of steps.
4. Across the patio
5. down the garden (the bit at the back you can see...)
6. then another 50ft to the back of the garden

Drop concrete block walk back up and get another one.... and that goes for sand, cement, gravel, wood...anything...!

However i will be on the zed tomorrow....!

You say that... The first job after clearing the garden (which took a month in itself) was to dig by hand a 5m square x1m deep section of the garden - by hand, with a shovel. 3 weeks every night for 2 to 3 hours and I never lost a pound... If anything I put on a couple...!

looks epic skub. how’s the k-tech working for you?
I've found a sweet spot setting which takes away the harshness,but still allows good feel for more spirited riding when the pace goes up. My problem before was,I couldn't get that balance. It was either rattling out my teeth,or too soft for faster riding,there was no middle ground.

With the K-tech the adjustments make a difference,that's probably the big difference between the upgrade and stock.

It was a big outlay for me ZM,but well worth it imo.
