    My first post over here

    I saw the recipe for pork chops in onion gravy in Our State magazine and wanted to try it. I'll slice the onions a little smaller next time but there certainly will be a next time. Served it with plain rice (smothered with the gravy)and green beans as sides.

Both are V6s, one 2wd SLE, one 4wd SLT. Anyone have opinions or experiences to share? Full size trucks are too big, too tall and not...

    Any reason I can't mount 4 (2 on each wheel) 80lb Kioti wheel weights on the rears of a DK45SC? No liquid ballast, and it isn"t an option.

    Anyone got input on a 5' TaylorWay tiller? I see one in an upcoming auction. Forward rotation, seems to be chain drive. It would probably do what I ask of it. Opinions and experiences welcome.

    Looking at Dewalt (because I have other 18V tools & charger), Snap-On, and Matco (because they service the shop I work at).
