I have been working on my yard since this spring. My latest project is a dry creek bed with two small water features with solar powered fountains. Every time I decide to add something else, I have to pull out the garden tools and clear more brush, grass and rocks.
Lately, I have been running into HUGE tree roots from the trees cut down last winter because they were too close to the shed. These roots travel underground for 10-20 feet, split and then continue. I cut the roots out of my way and pull them out, but I see a new sprout next time I venture outside. With the heat and the roots, I had just about given up.
Then I saw this new Black and Decker Alligator Power Lopper, which is a safe alternative to chainsaws. Chainsaws are dangerous, polluting and noisy and the chain never stays on the bar.
The Alligator, on the other hand, has many safety features to protect the user. It runs on electricity, so there is no messy mixing of oil and gas, and no loud motors. The Alligator Power Lopper weighs only 2.8 kg (just over 6 pounds), has an enclosed chain, dual handle switching and can handle cutting wood up to 4 inches in diameter.
My mission this week is to Get me a 'Gator and get those roots OUT.
