Would you be happy or mad?

Would you be happy or mad if this guy was your neighbor? I'm glad I can't see it from my house.

That's crazy. It looks like a city neighborhood. I'm amazed the city lets him get away with it.

A guy I get some used parts from has something similar to this, but his business is next to his home and trees hide it somewhat. But he's also on the very edge of town too...he has the room and no immediate next door neighbors. But yeah, a couple hundred machines out behind the work shop.

A collection like that should be on a commercial zoned lot and have a fence around it to block the view.

I would be slobbering all over myself if he had one or two or more Toro 2 stage 2 cycle snow blowers he would be willing to part with along with a brood herd of CCR3000 to sell me.

i could probably live with that next store. they are just snowblowers. they aren't hurting anything. they could be hoarding worse things. i just finished watching a episode of hoarders where they were hoarding everything including garbage. their entire house and back yard was just full of garbage. i know the hoarding feeling that you never know when you might need something and you will always need it the moment you throw it out but some people are just nuts. when i get fed up with garbage and usually try to do a couple good cleanups every year including cleaning out vehicles. i even recently did a tool cleanup since i could never find the wrench i needed when i needed and i know i own over 4 full sets of wrenches. gathered all my tools out of all vehicles in 1 spot and went through them. even got rid of anything that said made in china or had no warranty

Yup, been there, saved that. Used to take broken appliances apart to see what MIGHT be useful. Boss finally cured me. Took a big load to the dump a bunch of yrs back and she was beam'n ear to ear.

I don't think I'd want that by my house. It has it's place but (assuming here) it's in a residential neighborhood it should at least have some type of privacy fence around it. It would be one thing if the machines were organized by manufacturer and by size, all pointing same.direction and sitting basically upright.. Just having them all over and random .... I don't like that. I don't mind the number... I mind the mess.

I think it raises your property values...

One thing I have learned is that living richly is less about the net worth on your bank statement and more about the value of the lessons you offer those who want to learn from you.
