Knowledge is power. Not the kind that keeps the lights on, but still.

Do you ever feel like "handy" people speak their own language? Well, they kinda do. But we've tried to take the mystery out of things a bit by providing you with some helpful videos from our own YouTube playlist, as well as a glossary of words handy people like to throw around (showoffs). Take a look around--we hope you find this information useful. And don't hesitate to ask us any questions you like.

Glossary of common terms for landscapers, contractors & lumberjacks


Yes, LUMBERJACKS. Because they're too cool to not include in this list. Enjoy this Lumberjack Dictionary. For  LANDSCAPERS and those of you new to CONTRACTORS,  we have dictionaries for you, too. Just click on the word and be amazed by the lingo, jargon, common tongue, et al of these trades. And if you really want to be impressed and test your lumberjack vocabulary, check out the Lumberjack World Championships.


Ethanol: How bad is it really?


Ethanol is a hot button issue today and there are pros and cons to its use. But because we want your gear to be powered properly, we thought we'd give you some solid information from Chris Andrews of Axle Addict, the "advice and know-how on the nuts and bolts of all things motorized" blog. 


FAQ & our privacy policies, terms & conditions


Our phones ring all day, every day, and we get some similar questions we thought we'd compile for you here, just in case you were gonna give us a jingle. We also like to put all our cards on the table and hope you'll do the same for us, so here's some legal stuff we need to add to make you aware of how we do things.
