I am a little confused. If you follow us on a regular basis why did you buy a "crapsman" riding tractor? Surely you must know that the only thing the vast majority of members here would do with a "crapsman" riding tractor is sell it for scrap or hope the junk man doesn't charge us to get rid of it.

This year:

Husky 48 ZTR
Computer
Printer/scanner/fax/copier
Digital Camera
Tool cabinet
Ladder for trimming hedgerows

Got away cheap this year, only one big expense.

Next year:

Tow behind Bluebird aerator
Husky 36 WB
New BP blower
HH Hedge shears
replace all hand tools
Flat bed for truck
signs for truck and trailer
paint cab of truck
recover seats in truck
add 10' to the shop
and maybe a laptop

I expect all this stuff will be less than 2001 expenses.

Next year? I'm gonna buy a lawn mower.
Haha JimK. In the spring how about a push murray? Maybe we can get eXmark to send you a demo so after you use it for a season you could write an article on it.
