Yeah, and all hook and loop fasteners are Velcro, all cable ties are Ty-Raps, all sodas are Cokes(at least here in the south), all adhesive bandages are Band-Aids... It's just a slang term.

Yes, a toyota forklift, I used to own one, familiar with the product, in these parts, we call them "towmotors", like slang, its a general reference regardless of brand.

Im guessing its a regional thing. And yes, I do know what a towmotor is too..

I guess I'll have to keep my eye out for a deal on a used one, I'll sell my 200 and trade up if I can find the right deal.


btw: Around here an adjustable wrench is a Cresent wrench and a forklift is a forklift regardless of the name painted on it.

Knew you would love it..!!!

whole different world isn't it??

you could always keep both 200DX and Dyn 350DX Tigrunner.. I have both & the Dyn 200DX is awfully tough to beat for dragging off site...

cutter,

Wife's been helping me in the shop. "Hand me the biggest Crescent wrench hanging up there." She's learning.
