I'll stick to commercial RTS greenkeeper machines for the hobby. Lack of power in fly swatters is anoying..for professional use I have 70 and 80kV machines..

Hi Martin :shades:



Don't forget your Wellington boots, if the grass is wet ! ;)





I saw a DIY something-or-other on eBay.

Was wondering about it.

Didn't say it was a WMD or anything. :cool:

The RTS-Greenkeeper comes in 25, 35, and 55kV varieties. It isn't cheap, but all tests say it's the best value for money you can get.

I'm a bit scared to buy a grass machine with over 15Kv...
That's because of swedish law, which states that electrostatic hand tools over 20Kv is considered a handgun.... And will give you at least $3000 in fines or prison.
We have a prejudice, where a man rebuilt a fly zapper to give 35Kv to kill wasps.
Somehow the police found out about it, and he got 1 year on probation and $4000 in fines....

Think that if the CE brand is there Michael and it's also registered in Sweden there's no problem. 

That's one of the reasons these machines costs a bit more. 

The CE brand you have to pay for. 

I prefer machines from manufacturers with this brand because they forfill on certain laws and regulations..homebuild don't..

Following greenery magician Martin's advice, I decided some months ago to buy the RTS Greenkeeper.
A long discusion with Mr. Wallet ended in compromise and I ordered the 35Kw version.

I tried it a couple of times but just recently started to seriously learn how to use it.

There is only one thing I regret: I should have ordered the 55Kw version.
Not that the 35Kw has any issues.
I am really happy with it and finding no trouble at all, not even at using 12mm static grass.
But seeing how many things one can do with it, I am sure the 55Kw. version must offer plenty of more posibilities.
For example at making delicate work reaching difficult to access spots... Hmm... (...May be next year...)
But 35 or 55Kw, definitely a tool for the rest of my journey.
