    The Best Tool You Own

    I have a bunch of tools. This Fiskars long pole cutter is pretty good though. It has an 8-foot pole on it, cuts anything up to about an inch like butter. Noticed the driveway looked like Vietnam this morning, cut it back in an hour, took me two hours to clear away the debris. Good tool.

    @the angry Canadian: hm. I don't think so?

    I mean, I own tools on the internet for a living, but this was supposed to be about actual tools that you use to accomplish an actual task.

    Or not. As you wish.

    Honestly the only use I have for a pen is crosswords, but that's big in my world, so rock on.

    Whatever floats your boat, man. Who am I to judge?

    Best?

    Best as in most used: Milwaukee impact driver or Hitachi chop saw. Both with great stamina and used nearly weekly.

    Best as in most versatile: Milwaukee multi tool or dewalt angle grinder. I've done things I'm ashamed of with both those things.

    Best as in marriage maintenance: Apathy.

    After reading this thread I started my landscape list for the shop, put a 4 wheeler w/plow on the top of the list. Going to look at an 05 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 on Sunday, unless somehow the maggot contingency can tell me otherwise.

    (I also put those fiskar pruners on my list, although I only found them in 14 foot.)

    lots of abuse instaling an 8-track, used with a sanding disk to profile everything from a windsurfer dagger board to ski boot foot beds, drill/elongate holes ... the uses were endless and its still running

    I think I changed the brushes once

    I'll go with bodywhomper on this one; gotta be the skis. They are elegant, functional, and a load of fun. Close second is my Husky 550.
