Just the ticket! McConnels lay the fern to rest

dsc_4829Once again we are indebted to McConnels for helping us out with the loan of their remote controlled Robocut and operator, Sparrow who made short work of clearing the overgrowth of fern on the common.

Left to its own devices the ferns would quickly engulf the common leaving nowhere to walk run or play. Years ago animals grazing the common kept it at bay but these days we have to rely on manpower or contractors.

McConnels generous help saves us both a tremendous amount of volunteer manpower and contractor bills. We are extremely grateful for their help not to say impressed by the latest generation of Robocut. More and more contractors are turning to this machine, particularly for applications like cutting alongside busy motorways and the like.
