New to tradie slang? Coming to Oz? Have a squiz at our list:

4. GIVE IT A BURL
This phrase means to try something that you haven’t done before, for example:
“Nah, I haven’t rewired a house yet but I will give it a burl.”
5. GRASS CUTTER
When a tradie feels like another tradie moving onto his patch, he would say this:
“Oi that Gazza is a bloody grass cutter”
