Well  I tried it today and for me it works, just wants some refining. A lot easier on the neck.

An adapted strimmer harness would have the padding!

No rabbits around me so I won't be needing one but if you bought the harness one side should attach on then you just need to adapt a strap for the other side.https://www.ebay.ie/i/302452402616?var=&ul_ref=https%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F5282-53468-19255-0%2F1%3Ftype%3D2%26pub%3D5575403537%26toolid%3D10001%26campid%3D5338343602%26item%3D302452402616%26customid%3Dvms%253Aeb%253Ap%253A302452402616%253BEAIaIQobChMIxPPS3-bx5QIVBLTtCh0TXA8BEAQYASABEgIlNvD_BwE%26mpre%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.ie%252Fi%252F302452402616%253Fvar%253D%26gclid%3DEAIaIQobChMIxPPS3-bx5QIVBLTtCh0TXA8BEAQYASABEgIlNvD_BwE%26srcrot%3D5282-53468-19255-0%26rvr_id%3D2185232383214%26rvr_ts%3D7a7a619616e0a4d058929b51ffb344f8

Them baskets that rack poles ontop are smart, never really had a problem with one I use but that is deffo progress 😁👍  if I ever decide on another I’d want one them baskets to try 👍

I found them too fiddly katch. Got mine from Les, well made but I found it took longer to pick up the nets. I've gone back to the older baskets with the wider channels for the poles, just drop them in and keep in place with short bungees to stop them coming out if you drop it.

Thinking about flogging the baskets.

So you just use the extra strap to lift the net, not carrying it around. I use 4z net as i have said makes a fair bit of difference in weight and for me performance. When the basket is full with 2 slots full there is a hell of a lot of netting in it, whatever basket you use it is going to be on the heavy side with all that netting in. On the original i have a band on the bottom which helps plus i have it perfectly balanced when full of net. I only ever use my big basket when i need all that net.

I have two quick sets mate all 4z, a basket with two fifths and a smaller basket with a seventy five all full bag. I'm 68  now and find the strain on my neck a bit much especially when picking up if there is sticks etc in the net that slow you down. it's mostly hedges we do and this time of year they flail the hedges bits and pieces every where mostly black thorn, bit of a bugger. I'm looking for something to transfer the weight from my neck to my shoulders, this is my first attempt and a bit rudimentary. The blue straps hanging down the back I can reach and clip on, so I'm not a million miles away I don't think. But was hoping somebody had already cracked this.

You say you have a band on the bottom which helps, have you a picture mate as I'm most interested. Atb.

I will take a pic tomorrow mate. Yes i agree when there is i few stick in it slows you dow, i tend to just slip the basket round to the side right and left as if you are carrying it when i taking time to remove sticks, takes a little bit of weight off the neck whilst removing the sticks.
