    Push Toro - Curved shaft off brand weedeater - Broom - did all of that out of a 83 Dodge Ram Charger. I use to have bags of grass piled all the way to the ceiling, in the front seat and I would even dump in customers garbage cans if possible.

    Craftsmans rider, push mower. But the must IMPORTANT thing you will ever need is quality customer service. No matter what you riding or walking behind if you keep those blades sharp it is worth it's weight in gold.
