Favorite gas powered thing

I absolutely hate to drive But my job duties. And a Wife that has eye problems bad enough to make riding a bike or driving not realistic forces me to Have / drive a car . This on the other hand I enjoy gardening keeps me sane and provides lots of good food
Grillo G85D walking tractor, It isn't just a tiller with different attachment it mows blows snow and many other chores . I have the tiller a mower deck and have converted a yard tractor wagon to be pulled behind it


Handles swings 30 degrees offset so you don't walk in the fresh till dirt. Actually the 180 and the mower runs on the front

Since I don't own a gas powered thing at the moment, I'll give my all time favorite:

I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post pic of my rig but right now I'm in love with my work van (field service tech, cable company). It has so many gadgets and tools I love tools....and gadgets.

Talk to me after you have been working in the field 30 years People assume since I'm a tradesman I love tools and remodeling stuff NOT!!!! I work maintenance, now last job I had in the field I was averaging 150 miles a day driving. If it isn't a bike, old lawn mower, fishing pole or gonne I don't want to fix it. I would rather be working in my garden or riding my bikes

They were made by Aermacchi in Italy, whom Harley owned at the time

The one I had in the mid 70's wasn't good experience . Swore I"d never own another Harley because of that bike. I most likely got a lemon because a lot of people love them.

Since this is the internet, I'm going to say my girlfriend. She may be tiny, but she'd give those guys sitting around the campfire in Blazing Saddles a run for the money some days. And nights.

We only have two gas-powered things in the house. Mrs. A's 2009 CR-V FWD with leather seats, and my Toro lawn mower.

The CR-V wins. If I could find a battery-powered mower in the 22" range that could do a half-acre, I would pay for it. But looking at this thread, I kind of want a walking tractor...

My favorite winter gas powered thing is my snowblower, A JD 1330SE. It puts a smile on my face every time I get to fire it up!

This was a picture when it was brand new a year and a half ago...Don't worry. It is currently plastered in so much mud from last weeks ride that there is no blue plastic left to see


EDIT: Found a much newer picture (about 3 weeks ago)

That stuff gives me a head ache I get into it once in a while accidentally at work. In the late 80's we had to cut and cap a line live In a Operating room. 1/2 in line @ 50 psi 45 seconds from cutting the line to shutting it off Even with all the exhaust fans ramped up as high as they would go that is a lot of Nitrous dumped in a room!!
