Big, Bigger, Biggest

When I first moved to the country a man told me "always get the biggest piece of equipment you can afford -- you will never be sorry."

I have now been here in the country for many years and every year I realize how right he was. You can have a nice little snowblower that works fine in town.

But in the country, well ... let's get serious. This is my tractor and loader. It has been a life saver.

Of course I see even bigger machines that can move a ton of snow in a few minutes.

If want to get REALLY serious, well ....

Same with lawns. A nice push mower is great for a small lawn.

But if you have very much grass, well, let's mow it and not take all day about it.

Then again, this machine is even bigger and faster.

Still, THIS is one FAST machine!

Men and their toys, huh? Guess I will drive into town and get some bread and milk. Wonder what it would be like to pull into the parking lot with this truck?

Thanks for stopping by.

hahahaha I always told my family when I strike it rich the first thing I'd do is buy me a tractor and dig me some holes.
I sure would have one for snow blowing and grass cutting and I also like everything big.
except for the last truck with the big wheels.
I think if a farmer would let me I'd be happy to plow his fields for him.
I think its the most fun thing to do. :)

I need to get a snow blower and then I need to upgrade it by next year. I believe as you that you can't have a larger enough machine to clear snow.
Right now I have a very fancy snow shovel with a crooked handle that my brother bought. It is so easy to use I can't complain anymore.

I think of you every time I see a green and yellow vehicle. ;)

You're a hoot. :-)

Yup! Just proves the only difference between men and boys is the price of their toys. I think hubby wishes he had spent a bit more on a snowblower.......this year his little mini blower is no match for the snow we've had!

No such thing as too big. When it comes to machines...size matters.
