I had my 1950's Dilly Bunton trimmer in my booth at my shows this year....had alot of comments and 1 or 2 that had actually used one. A buddy of mine showed up the next day with a solid aluminum Poulan chainsaw and now we have a bet who can have the better one for next year. The Bushhog D4-10 is a no brainer......but I am going to suggest that he and I keep it to less than 5hp and not over a $100 find....that way we have a more fair playing field.....If I get the BH restored by then there is no way he could beat me.......
So the questions is....what unique small motored garden/lawn tool should I be looking for??
I have posted a picture of the trimmer for those who have never seen one. I believe the pull cord is the original but not 100% sure.

thanks

Now we are talking.....both good ideas.......any suggestions on how to search craiglist and other sites for this type stuff?? I normally just look on the farm and garden side.........but if you got any way that is better let me know......i also use searchtempest on areas that I plan on traveling in to see what is there....

Plan on heading back to PA in a couple of weeks.....hopefully I will find something while I am in the area.

Thanks

It's very difficult to read all posts for me. I fall way behind usually.

sacsr, nice trimmer. I had also thought of the roto stick as well. If u can find one.
