    Hi Guys,

    I am putting together my "arsenal" of equipment and thought this might be an interesting way to cover all of the bases and get some ideas which I might not have thought of. Apart from your primary mowers, what are some of the peices of equipment that really help your production time, quality of service or otherwise add to your ability to do the best job.

    Equipment ( power or otherwise ) that you just would'nt want to do the job without.

    Thanks for any replies! :)

    Hey neighbor!

    Anyhow, I would say that a power stick edger is a must. Better end result and cuts down on labor.

    I would say Worktunes am/fm headphones to pass the time.
    I especially like it on Saturdays to listen to landscape & garden show, mutual fund/investment show and college football.

    A large (5 gallon) jug of cold water. I forgot mine one day last year and saw heat exhuastion around the corner. Now it's the first item in the truck!
