    Store lawn equipment for the Winter

    I ran all gasoline engine equipment until gas tank empty, changed motor oil, clean and lubricated.

    I cleaned all battery power equipment, clean and lubricated.

    Then stored them in a storage container.

    Pretty cool!!

    Yeah - what he said!

    Looks really handy - can move around with forks easily depending on the weight.

    Indeed. I'd love to get ahold of a few of those. I'd bet I could make a really nice generator shed out of one of those.

    Sorry for the delay.

    It made from aluminum. So it is rust free. Weight 480 lbs. each and stackable. it can be folded away to save space while it is not in used. It costed me about $167 each plus time and labor to pick them up at Ft. Bragg, NC. 3 of them are brand new. One is used.

    It is easy to move them around if you have 1025R or 2038R. I moved them 2 at a time with 2038R (empty) with pallet forks.

    I also purchased a 3-layer stainless steel water tank. It does not freeze water in the winter. It is new on a pallet. My Gator can pull it around on my property.

    Why is the Army getting rid of new equipment? I guarantee they paid more for those items than you did. Our tax dollars at work.

    Do they advertise those sales? I'd love to have a couple of the containers, and the water trailer would be cool, too. How much was that?

    I bought the water tank for $500. The government paid $15,000 (new list price).

    I think military has to have equipment ready for deployment and its shelf life is 5 years. If it does not deploy, it has to rebuild or recertify. Otherwise, it go to surplus. I bought 2 generators with 2 hours each for $2,400. Basically, they are brand new, just old stock.

    My Gator came back from Iraq. I paid $1,800. Replaced motor oil, flushed radiator, flushed diesel, it started right up. 560 hours is very low hours for 2006 model year.

    You can check it out at GovPlanet.com.

    If the government does not sell as surplus, I don't think I can effort to buy it.
