I only go down to wheel barrows, I haven't seen a need to do it with hand tools yet. But I do know some guys that do, they number literally everything they own with riveted brass tags. I use mail box numbers on the cheap equip, and its included in the signage on the more expensive stuff like trucks, skids, etc.. I'll take some pics tomorrow.

I use the maintenance page in the back of the owners manual for my machines.

If i end up selling a mower i'll give them the manual and then they also have the

records of all the maintenance and repairs done since it was new. This gives the

dealer/new owner peace of mind that it was well taken care of.

Thanks guys! I enjoy speaking with everyone on here. Always learning something new or helping someone else out. I don't get on here very much during the landscape season but hopefully I can be a bit more active this coming season. Good luck to everyone this season!
