I think Howards are the Rolls Royce of rotary hoes.

We had a BIG Howard at the Ag studies block while i was at high school, it was a really lovely solid quality machine. Best operated by 2 of us kids though, one on each handle! It had the most beautifully smooth, easy starting, crank start Kohler engine on it. I would often sneak down the Ag block at lunch time just to start it!

Soon after that time, someone "important" decided that a lot of things at the school were far too dangerous to be used, and it was never seen again. I still often wish i had had the chance to buy it.

Fortunately i was on extremely good terms with my Tech teacher, and solely due to his prompting, i was able to buy the milling machine from the metalwork shop, which was destined to suffer the same fate as the Howard. The mill is still in my workshop, i still use it, and it is a constant reminder of the best and most decent school teacher i ever had.

Picked this one up recently, paid £10 for it. Didn't take long to get it going, runs quite nice now.

Grandad, are you going to mow that lawn or dig it up?

I went to Roseworthy on thursday, and noticed 2 separate properties in the same street had Howards carefully positioned in their front yards, on display as "garden art".

I hope you are not casing aspersions on people with Howard's as Garden Art. :)
