Kunk!

Kunk, regarding Hedge trimmers, invest in The heaviest gaspowered you can find with a long pole. The difference will be night and day. At my inlaws place it was the difference between two days of trimming and 4 hours. ( about 400meters of beech.)

The one acquired here was around 1100€..

Are you seriously asking for $85K to remodel my kitchen and bathroom? No, fuck you.

That's really not that far outside the realm of normalcy for a full-service job. Unfortunately.

Can def be done cheaper, but it doesn't scream ripoff... depending on what you are planning to do. Especially in your area. smile.gif

Your avatar fits perfectly, imatlas.

Douglas, I love houses of that era, but there are a few streets lined with university owned victorians in my area, and literally contractor's trucks parked in the driveway year-round working on them. Sometimes some pretty full-scale projects when the students arent living in them.

1100 euros for a hedge trimmer???? All my home power equip is Stihl, which at least in my neck of the woods is the highest end brand, and I paid less than that for the trimmer, blower and chainsaw, and I got their "professional" level in each of those.

Looked it up, it's the stihl combi 130 with the 135• hedgetrimmer. The combination of just those two is 900 something, I guess my fil bought another extension as well. The thing is awesome though, the long extension makes it balanced on your shoulder, thus reducing fatigue. And the engine is a lot stronger that what he had last year..

My dishwasher door won't shut. It looks as if the unit has shifted and become loose under the cabinet. I also noticed some water where the drawer pulls out. I am not sure whether to call the manufacturer, a plumber, a carpenter, or what to get it installed. I am hoping that there wasn't a small leak that over time rotted out the screws securing it into its space. That would require quite a fiasco to fix.
