Toys!

Hubby's toys that I'm allowed to share: Chevrolet, Bass Tracker, and John Deer Gator.
I told Hubby this tool was the best thing he had ever bought for me.  That caused quite the discussion. I have been using this bad boy DeWalt saw.  It does wonders on those bushes that are too big for hand pruners and it sure beats gnawing or sawing the stump off.

Gals like handy dandy easy to use tools too!

My daughter has a new house with a horribly overgrown yard - I think I'll look for one of those saws for her! blessings, marlene

I would love one, but frankly, I think I'm about to give up. Rain washing out my new flower gardens. Rain washing out what little rock in the driveway is left. Rain and humidity helping all vegetation (good and bad) to grow before my eyes. Score: Nature 100, Teresa-0.

I never thought of using that as a trimmer. Why not if it works though? Clever.

I have a few of the DeWalt tools, and they ARE handy!

Karen S. said...

We sure do, because a good many of us like those big boy toys too, because they work!

My favorite section of Home Depot is the tool section! I never thought about using that for bushes, I bet it is so fun!! I like all of your husbands toys and yes, I think I would like them so much too. Have a wonderful 4th Gail!

Indeed. Before Bill became a trucker (2011), he was a salesman for machined parts. Before that, he engineered parts. Many of the parts he created and sold went into hand tools. De Walt was one of his top customers. He won awards for them. He has many, too. Me? No, but I can use them.

Wow ... now those are serious looking toys - and if they help a gal in their work that is just brilliant.

Many thanks for your comment on the low carb diabetic blog ... pleased to hear you have slept better.

Have a lovely weekend

All the best Jan

Ooh, I have one of those I have forgotten about and I could really use it now to saw branches.

Well I am coveting that Gator...I have been looking at them maybe some day I will find a good used one! I have a saw like that too and yes we use it for limbs too! :)

LindaG said...

You bet! We love deWalt, too!
Have a blessed weekend, Gail. Stay safe! ♥

Oh how I covet your JD Gator....! We want one of those at the farm one of these days. Maybe next year. ;-)

Hmm, you've intrigued me about the DeWalt. I wonder how that would be for quick cutting of small tree branches? We have the mesquites all over and they have low branches. It's such a pain to dig out the chainsaw and get it ready and then it weighs a ton and I've just got small stuff to take care of. I never thought about this. Thank you!

Sawzall reciprocating saw, love them!!! I use it all the time for everything :-)

The last time I used my sawzall (or shall I say my husbands saw) was when I.....I'm we cut the sidewalls off my garden tires for planting potatoes.
