The main benefit of electric mowers is monetary--eliminating gas and oil consumption and the changing of filters and spark plugs. Electric mowers are generally quieter than their combustion engine counterparts. Electric mowers leave no carbon footprint, making them more environmentally friendly. Electric mowers are usually lighter and easier to use than gasoline engine mowers.
Excavators are a valuable tool in a wide range of applications, from digging trenches and preparing foundations on construction sites, to driving in piles on a farm. Clear snow in poor weather, dredge rivers, or demolish existing structures as part of a clearing operation. Access to a John Deere or Komatsu digger makes many projects easier, helping you to keep to deadlines and improve overall workforce efficiency. While most excavators have tracks, it is also possible to get wheeled models, which may be more suitable in certain working environments, especially if you need to drive between work sites on main roads or require extra maneuverability.
Tractor paid for, and loaded on to Kyle’s trailer, I called my wife. After a brief “conversation” about the home renovations all that cash could cover, the tractor was dropped off at Phelps’ garage. Rather than me figuring the machine out, I had Bill give it a once over, replace all the fluids, the few bad hoses, straighten the bent loader bucket, and re-pack that leaky swing arm cylinder. There was a new battery, too, and a few other things, which rung up to $1,500 or $500 more than I had anticipated before I started bidding.
I was happy with my $9,000 purchase price, if not a little stunned. Except for our house, which was only possible thanks to a big mortgage, this was the largest single purchase I’d ever made. More than my truck. More than my wife’s car. But auction houses charge additional fees that you need to be mindful of. At the auction I attended, the buyer’s fee was 10 percent for total sales under $1,000 and 1 percent for sales above $1,000. Credit card payments were an additional 2 percent, which I was OK with because I got the equivalent of 3 percent cash back in points and had the dinero to pay it right off – thanks to months of tight living.
An extended reach design uses multiple hinges and parallel lifting bars on the loader arm, with the main pivot points towards the center or front of the machine. This allows the loader arm to have much greater operating height while retaining a compact design, and allows the vertical movement to be less of an arc and more straight-up vertical, to keep the bucket forward of the operator's cab, allowing safe dumping into tall containers or vehicles.
The main types of lawnmowers are the walk-behind mowers (push reel, gas or electric); riding (the fun one), hover mowers, which are push mowers that use an impeller system to push air down, allowing it to hover over the grass; and the robotic mower, which is an autonomous, self-guided unit that is as efficient at cutting the grass as it is at impressing (or frightening) the neighbors.
Knowing how much tractor you need is a separate problem all together. The answer depends on the work you intend to do. What implements will it pull? Is the main job brush hogging an established pasture or finish-cutting a lawn? Do you need tires that won’t trash the yard or more aggressive treads and 4-wheel drive so it won’t get bogged down in the woods? I was after a 30-to 50-horse machine with 4-wheel drive, and a frontend loader. Because much of my land is forest that I’m clearing for food plots and pasture, I wanted something heavy enough to take a beating and pull an 8-foot tiller or brush hog.
If you’re shopping for a tractor at auction, and do your research, and know enough for a thorough in-person inspection, that could be your story, too. Knowledgeable friends are worth their weight in gold, too. Me, I have a whole new list of things for the next big ag sale: a tiller, a brush hog, a spreader, grader blade, forks and on and on and on.
The make and model category is further divided into the purpose in which a driver sits on the machine and drives it, and the other where the operator works alongside the vehicle. The type of drive is further broken down to wheel type and track type. The wheel type is then broken down into two, three, and four-wheel types of drives, while the track type is subdivided into full and half-track types of drives.
