    Fassa ki70

    So Whos used it ? Ive sprayed it before, for dubbing out. Sprays well. Ive been asked to price up a lime job, no dpc, had sand cement but fell off after 3 years. Fassa say it can be i bared same as mono. Then floated. Would be easier than putty for sure. Any one used it or similar bagged lime ?

    Generator fuel choice.

    I want to buy a generator for the ritmo L. No problems spraying from the mains, but I wont always have access to mains power. With the price of petrol, are diesel or even LPG generators worth a shot ? Will be aiming for a 9kva maybe 10kva.
