    here's my list:

    Winter money first (Done).
    Now I've decided from here on out, whatever I buy, FIRST I have the money to pay for it already in the bank on TOP of winter money.
    I done made that mistake of buying something based on future income too many times, I ain't going that route again.

    So (and yes roughly in this order):
    Parts and supplies (all kinds of stuff): $1050.00
    New 15hp Kohler: $500.00
    Somewhere in there: A welder and a tire-changer: $600.00
    Newer truck: $4000.00
    Another new Wb: $3200.00
    A used compact tractor with loader: $6000.00
    A decent sized Ztr (at least 52"): $8000.00

    What am I up to here?
    US $ 24,000.00

    Geeez, it's gonna be a while, few years lol...payup :help: payup :help:

    Well I'm going tomorrow to my Stihl dealer to talk price on 4 new machines 2 FS100RX Trimmers and 2 BR600 Blowers. I'm getting tired of the Echo stuff I have and I love my FC110 so I want everything to be the same brand.
