Ive been thinking i might start collecting other old/vintage/antique power equipment. Like snowblowers, tillers, saws, and related items. Anyone else have that kind of stuff in there collection? Got any pictures? Thought it would be fun to show some of that stuff too. I have a minature 6 inch hammer mill im gona show, and demonstrate this year. I will try and get some pictures of it tommarow.

Thanks

We have a couple of pieces of old power equipment. I don't know if I can find a picture of the saw real quick but one of my favorites is an old Strunk chainsaw I got at an auction the other year. Runs and sounds great. Actually come to think of it I did a video on it cutting wood after I got it running.

Bob, are you planning to go by brand or just by age of the equipment?

 

I've usually bought just about anything that's old.  My interest is history: old rototillers that would chew your leg off without guards, toenail trimming open deck rotary mowers, and dog eater snowblowers are all a part of garden equipment history. 

 

Save them all!
