NZ Shed

I've had a couple of days confined to my bunk with a flu.  Luckily, thanks to my NZ supplier, the latest edition of NZ shed mag arrived.  In the "Shed of the month" interview we are introduced to Bruce Alexander from Taranaki. Amongst other exploits Bruce and his father bought a World War II Valentine tank in 1960.  This was the basis of their famous hedge cutter mounted with a 16 foot blade.  The Taranaki locals would line up to see boxthorn and barberry infestations cleared with a 17 tonne tank mounted with cutting arm where the turret once was, powered by a second six cylinder motor.

Now that's the Kiwi spirit!
