Just killed my lawnmower :(

Thought I'd do the Mrs a favour and mow the garden as its getting very lawn.
Normally its one of the things she does and Im a bit useless at.....

All going well and about 2/3rds through when I turn around to go back up and cut through the lawn mower cable :(

Looks like I need to start looking at replacement cables or replacement lawn mowers.
Anyone know any good deals or ideas!

No good deed goes unpunished!

You should be able to get a coupler for the cable to fix it, that's probably the cheaper method :)

Yeah will need to get googling in a minute to sort something out.
Glad to know my RCD worked (it tripped).

Garden looks pretty stupid at the moment and so will I when I explain this one to her :oops:

Robotochan is right, a waterproof coupler should fix it.

Get yourself a rabbit and then then you just gotta go round the edges with a strimmer.

Rabbit cheaper to buy than a lawnmower,since we got ours,we not had mower out.

We actually would like a rabbit, but we go away a bit too often and already have to get family to look after the dog and a neighbour to feed the fish (in the pond).

Rep to all for help!

Just looking at the area I have mowed and it doesnt look anywhere near as good as when the Mrs does it! Should have known better!

Thats handy, I'd love to have a load more animals if we could!

Anyone able to help find a example of the waterproof electrical coupler from someone like B&Q could do with sorting this sooner rather than later and any help would be appreciated (& repped)

Seems I need a "Rubber 3 pin connector" so need to hope B&Q do them, will pay them a visit tmrw.

Tbh If it was me I would use a normal coupler, but I'm sure some health and safety fanatic would say it's illegal:w00t:

We once had 2 sheep when I was a child to keep the grass down in our orchard, named 'Mint sauce' and 'Gravy'.

Mower wise, if you are thinking of getting a new one try your local garden machinery place, when we needed a new mower they did us a great deal on an ex-demo model and were so helpful.

A connector like this should do the job - its what I use on my lawnmower.......

and decent ones cut much better and quicker....used my honda izy on wetish grass about 4 in high...one pass no problem...downside is they are alot heavier (mine is self propelled though which helps alot) and they are alot more expensive (mine was about £300, rrp £400ish)
