The EZ Dual Changer. http://biermansales.com/Product/EZDualChanger

Bought ours about 12 years ago. We use the loader with this tool to lift tires from above and able to rotate them to line up bolt holes. I have done this job by myself many times and only takes a few minutes per tire.

Definitely my snap-on battery powered impact guns. 3/8s and 1/2 inch. Saves so much work.

Milwaukee 1400 ft/lb cordless impact absolutely the best purchase I’ve made this year ! It also helps with building skills like extracting broken bolts and sharpening my foul language vocabulary haha !

Free grain cart driver, book keeper.

Fringe benefits ain’t bad either.

Verified FBN Member (TX)

Moist!

Your lucky, I didn't get the grain cart driver or bookkeeper, on a good day I might get some parts picked up, or a meal. The house is clean, and there's no Monday morning quarterbacking, take what I can get!

This lift table has been a lifesaver in our shop. Got something heavy that needs to go in a pickup bed? Lift it up with the table and slide it in. Need an adjustable stand to hold some steel while doing fabrication? This does the trick. Shoot, this week we used it for a step stool on a combine to get up higher on the machine to change out rotor covers. Don't get the Harbor Freight or Northern Tool version though. They don't hold up like these from U-Line.

Verified FBN Member (ON, CAN)

Definitely our dewalt automatic grease gun it has cut greasing time in half

Verified FBN Member (NE)

Milwaukee cordless pump. While it doesn't claim to be rated for oil, I haven't poured out of a 5 gal. bucket since I bought it!

Verified FBN Member (IA)

$950 pull-type sprayer. It saved $4000 the first year so I got a nice Hardy the next year. 10 years later the Hardy isn’t worth anything.
