Just got back from a road trip to South Wales, with my new toy, a Versatiller Mark 2 with lots of implements...








Rather chuffed...

Indeed it is nigel, this one is with the mower and evil looking saw blade !!

Steve d also has two mark 1 versatillers now, so we have enough implements to display four Versatillers, all with different attachments...
