Ran across two toys for us boys-- an electric garden cart that totes 200 pounds and a Ryobi brush cutter and string trimmer.

The cart from Neuton hauls my dog food from van to storage, potting soil (etc.) from tool shed to garden, and even dirt from the dozer droppings to the uneven places around the yard and drive. It's something that I had never thought of but can't get along without now.

The brush cutter/string trimmer was a surprise! Easy to start and light enough to forget you're "really working hard!" The fun part is that there are at least six attachments that can be used with the 1 hp engine-- a string trimmer, brush cutter, pruning saw, tiller, blower, edger... I only have two attachments now but if I do it right, Judy can get me another one for Christmas, Father's Day, Birthday, etc...

Work, work, work

Just finished with afternoon bulldog chores. Peanut wanted to ride in the cart. I told him to wait until I unloaded the potting soil. So he waited (a minute) and then got in, looked around, but when I started her up, ol' Peanut said it was too fast and jumped out...

Jeri: My control bar wouldn't work so I called them and they sent out a whole new assembly! They were very nice about everything... The 800 number is on the cart itself.

I e-mailed Neuton last night to see if there is something that can be done for my cart. When you push the red button and put the switch to reverse it still goes forward. Even without reverse I still love my cart. I weight about 110 lbs and it is so much fun to move stuff, finally that weights twice as much as I do.

Thank you for the advise.

One more use of my (er... Judy's) garden cart: Laundry basket. I can put 4 loads of wash in the cart and buzz it up to the clothes line. Touch of the handle and it moves along with me as I hang up the laundry. This is dog laundry - bedding, etc.
