started out this year purchasing a 2yd stainless steel sander, but the year got more expensive as it went on. Ended up with:

1983 Mack cab over sweeper and a sweeping business
60" Exmark Lazer Z
Echo split boom trimmer w/edger attatchment
Echo power pruner
5x10 trailer for leaf vac, replaces trailer totaled in accident
1995 1 ton chevy dump w/plow, replaces truck totaled in accident
Copier for office
misc. hand tools
stihl br 400 backpack blower
and misc. smaller items needed

for the winter blues a 1998 Polaris 440 snowmobile w/low miles
and a triton aluminum snowmobile trailer

and also ended up with a slightly peeved off girlfriend which came mostly after the snowmobile........LOL

so far for next year I ordered an Exmark Ultra-vac and am wishing for an 18 foot enclosed trailer and a new diesel pickup

........and really in my dreams is some good help

Chuck, maybe you should e-mail this thread to some potential sponsor's of this site. It might give them an idea of the buying power of this group..
GM, Ford, Dodge, Nissan etc
Jim from Turf might want to edit his about the crapsman.

Bobcat 36"
Bunton 48"
Echo SRM-2400
Echo PB-650

I think next year I'll buy a bigger trailer to haul all the stuff I bought this year. 6.5 x 16 maybe?

Jim at TURF Magazine here. You're right. I should not be slamming folks ... I was just kidding ... but you are right.

As far as this thread being great exposure for lawnsite ... I will be running this as a column in the January issue (minus my wise cracks) ... and before that ... I'll be faxing a copy to a long list of fine companies who advertise in TURF and who should be sponsoring lawnsite. Hope this will help.

redmax wacker & hh blower
6.5 x 12 trailer
2001 chevy 4/4 (now selling)
3 landscape programs
pressure washer
20" stihl chain saw
48" exmart walk behind

Next year:

8 something bobcat
tc35 new holland w/ hydrostat
f450 w 4/4 diesel (should be coming in two weeks)
52" lazer
fertilizer spreaders
new accounts?!?!
