    well jeez i dunno

    but a new 2008 Ford F-550 powerstroke with a dump and loaded as much as possible would be nice

    then pulling a 20ft enclosed trailer with a 60" walker GHS diesel in it with an exmark turf tracer HP 48 and exmark 26" push mower in it would be sweet.

    As for trimmers, I like what I have, Echo PAS-260 with a trimmer attachment and stick edger attachment. I also like my Echo blower as well. its a 651 or something like that
