Best and worst buys lately?

Hey all just wondering about past purchases good and bad. Why are they so great, and what was so bad. Mowers, trimmers trailers trucks.

.25 Eagle 1 gallon gas can

Went to a yard sale and found a new round red plastic 1 gallon Eagle gas can with the plastic spout and end cap vent (why oh why did the government ever make manufacturers stop putting them on gas cans) for 25 cent. These are great for my mix gas. This has been my best score in the last couple weeks.

I've been waiting for my tax return to comb through craigslist for deals. I saw a scag wb 61" for $500, needs a new spindle. Was really tempted to just uselessly drop money on it.

I bought one of those awd husquavarna push mowers last week. It's the cats meow for steep slopes and the cut quality is absolutely outstanding. Better than what I expected.

^^^^^^ sorry about that!
Forgot about this one, next door neighbor whom I'm good friends with and do some work for her gave me a lawn boy electric/pull start 20in self propelled mower! It's actually really awesome and works amazing!, she bout is a couple of years ago and only used it once or twice then hired a guy for her lawn, so now I'm using it and new the mower is like $500 I think
