Im just replying to an earlier post here on this thread - i'd like to know the reasons behind the comments on the Fort disc mower above?
I have a Fort 2060 myself that i use for both Topping, mowing, and hedge trimming. I have it 6 years now and it hasnt given me one bit of hassel. Smashing machine.
The machine (like all the bits and pieces that i have) is housed after use for the winter, rubbed down with waste oil and regularly checked for grease and oil, etc..
In fact, a fair few farmers in the area have the same machine and likewise, i dont hear anyone running them down.
Another thing is that i cant compare with any other make as it was my first mower to own/buy. I'd like to hear any experiences with Fort out there - good/bad.
