It's all getting too easy

It's over a week ago now, but this is the first chance I've had to get something online. I spent last Thursday and Friday down at Probst UK main depot in Wem watching a trial installation of Blockleys' clay pavers. You can read all about that on the news page, but while I was there I had my first real chance to play with the battery-powered block splitter which I saw at SED way back in the spring.

It's a bit of a beast, and, as one of my contractor chums commented, the offcuts flying out at the speed of a bullet are bound to attract the attention of the Elfin Safety Officer on site, but is this the future for those bone-idle block layers who find the effort of pulling a level just too much of a strain?

If you're interested in one, expect to fork out around two-and-a-half grand, but then it is a Probst, so you know it's just about as good as it gets and it won't let you down.
