    I do have a stihl FS55 a Crapsman blower, JD chainsaw etc...But I only have a 5x10 trailer that I just bought this past spring. I haven't yet figured out how to put a Turf Tiger with 6ft deck onto a 5ft trailer. I also have a Yanmar 1500D tractor with a FEL and tiller. Talked the wife into letting me buy that 3 years ago to do some landscaping around the house. Every year we put in more beds to mow around! This year I had 54 yds of mulch delivered. The FEL comes in real handy and I couldn't do half the jobs I do without it. I'm a desk jockey in real life but I secretly wish to be out there mowing and landscaping! I attached a pic of my Yanmar. The rocks were for the waterfall for the pond I built that wraps around our deck.

    I love the Yanmar. It's a great machine and I don't know how I ever got by without a front end loader around the property. My yanmar is 25 years old and still runs like a champ. That 18 horse diesel just keeps chugging. It starts right up even in the coldest weather. It has 1006 hours on it now. I bought it with around 900 hours 3 or 4 years ago. I was leary at first about buying a grey market but so far I have not regretted it. The price was right also. I paid $6k for the tractor FEL, Tiller, box blade and 4ft finish mower. I did not use or need the finish mower so I have since sold that off to get it out of my garage.

    For the money these Yanmars can't be beat. Here's a project I just completed. Tilling up a new landscape bed for the front of the house....

    Thanks! I'm really pleased with it so far. It made short work of my yard and that's what I was looking to do. I was looking to purchase a new Tiger Cub but this came along at 1/2 the price and it's a whole lot more machine to say the least.
