    well this year i purchases a trailer frame, axle and wheels (one piece). through the course of the year ive been custom makeing it (deck, sides, boxes etc). over the winter i plan on buying a commercial weedwacker and blower. next years items include a truck, and a wb mower most likely, but nobody knows.

    So I followed lawnsite winter and spring and armed with your wisdom, I purchased a "crapsman" riding mower.

    I am a little confused. If you follow us on a regular basis why did you buy a "crapsman" riding tractor? :eek: Surely you must know that the only thing the vast majority of members here would do with a "crapsman" riding tractor is sell it for scrap or hope the junk man doesn't charge us to get rid of it.

    This year:

    Husky 48 ZTR
    Digital Camera
    Tool cabinet
    Ladder for trimming hedgerows

    Got away cheap this year, only one big expense.

    Next year:

    Tow behind Bluebird aerator
    Husky 36 WB
    New BP blower
    HH Hedge shears
    replace all hand tools
    Flat bed for truck
    signs for truck and trailer
    paint cab of truck
    recover seats in truck
    add 10' to the shop
    and maybe a laptop

    I expect all this stuff will be less than 2001 expenses.

    Haha JimK. In the spring how about a push murray? Maybe we can get eXmark to send you a demo so after you use it for a season you could write an article on it. :)
