    I don't think we had a thread yet about what we are all hoping to buy in 2008.

    Me and my dad are thinking about a harley rake or a rockhound, for the upcoming dirtwork this month. But thats about it.

    How about you guys? things you bought this year, going to buy or want to buy?

    Lincoln 14V grease gun and 4 cases of grease, I'm going to need it :laugh:

    I think my dad is going to play it cool this year, he didn't buy anything last year. He was thinking about trading his 216 in for a 248, but decided against it. Not a stellar work year for the residential market, focus around here is on commercial and state work.
