    :p Well I guess Brown, err Red has it. I have rented this brand always and have always been very well satisfied. The last one I rented after starting it sounded like an atomic blast when I engaged it to dig, cut it off immediately and found one of the guys had left a very nice crestaloy 15'' adjustable wrench on the shaft while doing maintenance on it. Everything went smoothly from then on out. I also have seen the new self propelled models that don't require you to pull, very very nice.

    If you have a large budget fo this ... try the hydro. bed shaper (yellow). A very cheap way to go is to use a Mantis tiller and remove 1 set of tilling blades.
