A well equipped groundskeeper

It is my goal to carry every essential piece of groundskeeping equipment allotted to me in my cart at once.
I'm getting better at it.
(Note how cleverly I have obscured anything that would identify which local private college I work for.)

  1. Ooo backpack blower! I'm using the handheld version, although it can suck leaves so that does good for me. Last fall found me picking up a new to me Husqvarna sidewalk edger; looking forward to manicured walks this spring.

    1. The backpack blower gets heavy after w while.
      I got a new Stihl edger that had interchangeable attachments. Edger, trimmer, hedger. I'm tall enough I seem to be always bending over edging with it. I found an old 4 wheel Briggs powered edger that Ive been using.

  2. Leaving no leaf unblown
    He motors forth
    No blade unmown
    He stays the course
    Through wind & rain We feel his pain
    Here's hoping that re-mains sane.

    With apologies to my English teacher

    1. Play a banjo and sing that and add a verse of sadness and pain and you could do a bluegrass tour.

    2. I was a boy scout for a short while. On our first "camping" trip, we spent the night at Timberline Lodge. The highlight was the guys pissing out the 2nd story window. I didn't consider that learning woodcraft, so I quit. That was Portland in the late 50's. Hasn't changed much either.

    3. I remember "camping" on Mount Hood as a cub scout in the 1960s. The cabin was snowed in so one had to use the 2nd floor door. I thought that was so cool.

  4. How does what looks like a grain shovel get employed in day-to-day groundskeeping? And three rakes as essential equipment?

    1. I think that means he's #1 in line to follow the horses should there be a parade.
