The “Manly Man” concept is something most of us know about. Sure, it’s definitely a stereotype to some effect. However, you also probably have someone in your life who fits the bill of the manly man in their own personality.
We don’t know about you guys, but here at Beacon Equipment we love perusing blogs for inspiration. Whether we’re about to undertake our next DIY backyard task or a home reno, it’s great to have so many free resources full of tips and advice at our finger tips. Being based in Perth and being a WA family owned and operated outdoor tool business, we wanted to give a shout out to some of our favourite Perth bloggers who keep us entertained and motivated around the home and garden.
There’s two major priorities to consider when the Mrs asks you to get the lawns sorted. And let’s face it, she’s been pestering you for weeks now so you want to get this right! But first – the job has to be done properly (or you’ll be in the dog box for the next month) and the second, you want to enjoy it (better yet, you want to LOVE it).
Before you get to work cutting up trees, pruning, and harvesting your firewood this season, don’t forget to give your safety equipment a good once-over. By way of reminding you about what you need, the following is a list of the absolute essentials. If you are unsure if your PPE (personal protective equipment) is up to standard, check out the Safe Work Australia website, and do not begin until you are confident that you have all you need to keep yourself safe when using your chainsaw.
This time of year can be a challenging one for West Australian gardeners. Trying to keep the superb look of our gardens while coping with the inevitable water restrictions is a test for even the most skilled of green thumbs.
Have you ever found yourself ready to mow your lawn, only to realise that no matter how hard you try, your lawn mower simply won’t start? It happens all the time — especially if it’s a model that you’ve been using for years. After all, your lawn mower has served you all this time, trimming the grass and helping you make your lawn look nothing short of spectacular. Unfortunately, your lawn mower won’t work forever. The thought of replacing it with a new model may sound scary, but there comes a point when finding a new mower is your only option. Here are 5 reasons why your trusty lawn mower needs to be put into retirement.
Beacon Equipment is proud to be a West Australian family owned and run business. Our story began in 1992 when Michael and Jan Beacon bought Mowfix Mower and Chainsaw Centre in Canning Vale. Our passion has always been outdoor equipment from stocking the latest chainsaws to ride-on mowers, generators, pressure cleaners and of course lawn mowers in Perth.
Over the following 17 years after purchasing the outdoor power equipment company, the expert Mowfix team earned prestigious recognition of being a nationally recognized John Deere and Stihl dealer of the year in Perth. We pride ourselves on our extensive range of products we carry, backed by our fully qualified sales and service team.
In 2011 we changed our name to Beacon Equipment as you know us today. We felt this name change would better encompass who we are as a company as our range of products has grown from your everyday lawn and backyard equipment to commercial and industrial power equipment.
In 2012 we established the Perth Stihl Shop in Cockburn Central to increase our range as a Stihl specialist in Western Australia & make our services and products more accessible and convenient to our customers.
Our Canning Vale and Cockburn Central outdoor power equipment stores are currently run by father and son team, Michael & Andrew Beacon and we can’t wait to share our family business with you! Come on down to one of our stores today.
