Equipment and More - OakNut Takes a Lot of Photos

OakNut's wife: "You take way too many photos!"

OakNut:




I figured I'd start sharing some and rather than starting multiple threads, I'll try to post most of them here.

Here are a few pics I took today of my "daily use" equipment on the job...






















21" Toro Super Recycler
36" Ferris dual hydro walk behind
Stihl FS90R trimmer
Echo PB-770T backpack blower

As you can see, "brand loyalty" is a concept lost on me.

Why do you use two handles on the stihl?

I put the forward one on for use when using the hedge trimmer attachment. It makes a world of difference and since it's not in the way and weighs next to nothing, I just leave it on.

I think you're the first person to actually notice and ask!

What model is your stihl weed whacker? It doesnt look like a kombi, but you said that you have a trimmer attachment for it, I'm confused or missing some thing

Model is listed under photos.

FS90 accepts gearbox attachments on the END.
Not as many attachments as Kombi, but better than nothing.

You may not. I've trademarked it. I'll sue!

It's like a fore grip on an AR-15...









I think I need to add a tactical light too.



That loop handle was the only thing I kept from a junk Homelite string trimmer. I'm glad I hung onto it.

How well does the FS90R perform with the articulating hedge trimmer attachment? I'm using a HL100 for 95% of my hedge trimming. Any hands-on experience with the HL100 for a comparison?
