I am a BIG fan of setting up a local co-op to have the more expensive and more rarely-used gear. I wish more people would take this idea seriously. I fully love and appreciate "equipment lust", but I believe we would all be in much better shape, financially and socially, if we bound our farming communities together through cooperative and shared usage/support/purchase/ownership of these kinds of big-ticket/rarely used items.
More to the point (to quote vinflictor):
With the equipment listed- one could service 10+ area farmers. Kinda pointless to have all this stuff on every farm, no?
That's it, exactly. This kind of gear SHOULD be serving 10+ farms, IMHO.
