equipment

hey guys and gals just wondering what types of tools does everybody use. Currently am looking for the best tires to go on my mowers right now on one mower use tractor style tread I like them but the wear on them seem not to last only about eight months the other mower I got regular turf tread ,need to know best tire for wet conditions and for steep banks and ditches .
Also wondering what size compressor most of u use I use a 110 psi its little and handy but takes awhile to pressurize a house
My generator is 4000 and handels most of the needs but is old and I need to look for another one any good brands u would recommend or stay away from

re

How do you wear out lawn mower tires in 8 months? Granted lawns are not my primary business but I have 500 hours on my current set and they still look new.

I learned a long time ago to buy the best tools you can afford, and I live by that.

I cannot differentiate between tools for work & tools for home. At work I would never trust my livelihood to anything less than the best, and at home, I can't stand using tools that perform anything less than what I use at work.

And just like trucks, there are multiple brands that manufacture professional quality tools. Just because I might own one brand over the other doesn't necessarily mean that the other is junk, only that I found that to be the brand for me at the time of purchase.

Iíve already told you more than I know.

Yeah but in some on the areas I work I would rather have my $200 generator and $100 compressor stolen than my my Good ones. And yes they get chained down but that really does not matter half the time. Hammers and bits and air hoses work just as good from HF as they do from Lowes or sears. Yes I do believe in what you pay for, thats why the 1's at home say craftsman or Kobolt or Dewalt

Ask yourself if you can afford junk?
