LOL - a tractor is a great tool! Probably not so good for tightening up that 3/8 bolt - but it does have its uses!

Friday, my piling guy should show up and he has an even better toy...one of the BobCat's on tracks with a giant auger attachment. That thing is fun.

A big drill on a tractor! The perfect Christmas gift!

Lets see....I think it was Hurricane George. The beaches of the Outer Banks got hit bad...something like 15 years worth of errosion happened in about 5 days. I probably spent well over $20,000 in having sand shoved here and there to save septic systems and driveways (I guess I should say that homeowners spent that money plus my percentage on top of that). I went half with a pool company on a new tracked BobCat figuring I'd kill it the next storm. Damn thing got used once by me over the next two years. It was fun while it lasted.

I would have to say that this is one of the best tools in the world. The Sawzall has helped me out so much, and I expect it to continue helping me out. As long as it doesn't turn on me.

I got several of the things...here's an interesting one I bought a few years ago. Really good when you don't have a straight shot at cutting something. The cutting end of the saw will articulate in just about any position imaginable. Not great as a regular purpose saw since the housing tends to get a bit warm with long winded cuts.
