Loan of a Turf Cutter? (Newcastle ara)

    Does anyone have, or know someone who has a turf cutter (not a lawmower!) we could borrow for a day or 2 maxium. Lords, Toolhire etc are wanting £60+ a day.

    We need to up a 5x4m patch of turf to be replaced with pathing for a patio, so rather than dig/cut up the turn with a spade we wondered if anyone had, or know somone with a turf cutter - Not asking for a free loan, but that would be great. Could be a case or two of beer in it for you.

    Obviously needs to be local to NE15/NE5/Metrocentre area of Newcastle.



    Homebase Rentals are pretty good. Not sure if you have a local one though.

    Ive done that size with a shovel by myself, needed to level a ditch, so dug it up, chucked in some soil - a few dead bodies etc and relaid the turf, it took a few weekends, but glad i did! £120!? phew

    what about sticking a request on your local freecycle/gumtree site, might be worth a shot.

    Theres a local shop round the corner from me who does rentals of these things, i will have a google see if i can find out who they are called

    EDIT: RM services tool hire 0191 2502531
