Got one of those.. Interestingly enough, my pops bought one before hurricane sandy hit and even though 80% of the town blacked out, he didn't need it..

That reminds me.. Power washer!

I love snow, but that amount is a little absurd.

As for air compressor... Didn't think of that one....

Additionally, why have two, two door guerrillas? I would think either one could accomplish the same goal of going fast/making people like me jealous..

A descent socket set SAE and Metric, standard and deep. Air compressor, propane torch or Oxy/MAP. Trim tools, Floor Jack, Jack Stands, Brains, screwdrivers(flat, phillips, Torx), Brains, torque wrench, WD-40, work light, EYE PROTECTION, dust mask, gloves, patience.

A willingness to swear, bruise your knuckles and ego, but most of all be willing to learn.

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

Good air impacts, and a set of good, tight-fitting impact sockets. And a decent (not necessarily awesome) compressor.

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

A good Tap and Die set IMO is critical to have on hand, but its usually not something that people think about. I also use my vise a lot and I couldn't do half the stuff I do without my Dremel.

Re: Where do yall stand on this?

Don't forget to add a set of ratcheting wrenches (gearwrenchs) to your tool collection.

Not a particularly good idea if within too ready reach WHILE the work is going on.
Great for bribing knowledgeable helpers, but then you also need a barbeque and some brats.

I haven't seen anyone mention
Goo Gone
GoJo or similar cleaning jell
Lava soap
Crate of good quality paper towels

Not necessarily a good idea if too readily available during the work.
Quite valuable in bribing helpers, as is an outdoor barbeque and some brats.

Don't see anyone mentioning
Goo Gone
GoJo or similar jell
Lava soap
Crates of good paper towels
Bandages, band aids, Neosporin, Hydrogen Peroxide, etc...
