Re: Garage equipment is also useful in Garden!

yeah - used my engine crane, bought to pull out and replace my Scimitar's engine, to lift gravel boards to create / repair a fence -- our Rottie took a dislike to a neighbours albino boxer - no-one elses dog though,,,,, and literally would throw herself at 6ft wooden fence panels and crack them down...
