What Equipment Would You Like To Have?

Wow, some people have GREAT collections of small engine powered equipment, as detailed on another thread!

But what's on your wish list? What small engine equipment are you looking for or would you like to have?

I'd never heard of the Dixie Chopper:

Best residential zero turn lawnmowers | lawn mowers for residential use | commercial riding mowers(riding lawn mowers) | industrial lawn mowers- Dixiechopper.com



And I'd never heard of a compressed natural gas mower! With the extra large fuel tanks needed for CNG, it looks something like NASA's Luner Rover!

Well if they existed a Roomba lawn mower.


I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Right on----I have owned three different backhoes over the years, did all my work and sold them for a small profit.

I've always thought John Deere equipment was overpriced although that sounds like a reasonable price for that tractor.... but that tricycle front end would scare me I've got 16 acres but if you gathered up every sq ft of my flat land and put it together you still wouldn't have an acre of flat.

I would love a zero turn mower. A small skidsteer (bobcat) to handle cleaning the barn and a larger tractor or skidsteer to move round bales of hay. (1,200 lbs - 1,800lbs)

Was a good idea and then I saw the price. Maybe I'll get a goat instead.

My current wish list? A full size pickup truck, don't care what brand, and it doesn't have to be new, I'm real tired of trying to fit stuff in the trunk of my Neon. And if I'm allowed a second wish? A nice 12' x 16" shed. And if I'm allowed a 3rd wish? More spare time to do MY STUFF, instead of constantly working for other people.

I'm guessing you meant 16'. That would be a pretty narrow shed. Good for pipe though!
