The difference between lawnmowers and toasters?

I have been advised not to supply any gardening equipment, including lawmowers, on health and safety grounds. toaster

We would be liable if the tenants hurt themselves on equipment we have supplied. Does everyone think this is correct? But what about cookers, kettles, toasters etc.

If those health and safety grounds apply, shouldn’t kitchen equipment also be banned? The tenant could burn themselves?

Consider a hand powered mowing machine such as

Very few tenants expect that they will need to buy a lawn mower and having a massively overgrown garden can be expensive to clear and may permanently ruin it.

Why don't you sell the mower to the tenant for a nominal sum n hv him sign the receipt ?

I am a qualified PAT tester and it would need to be a very small portable fridge to come under the equipment testing regs (like the ones you sometimes get in B&Bs that hold a few cans).
