  1. Mower-A mower is a device for cutting crops or plants that grow on the ground. A smaller mower used for lawns and sports grounds (playing fields) is called a lawn mower.
  2. Tractor-A tractor is a device intended for drawing, towing or pulling something which cannot propel itself and, often, powering it too.
  3. String trimmer-A string trimmer, also called a line trimmer, edge trimmer, Weedeater (a brandname), Weedwhacker, whipper snipper, strimmer, garden strimmer, or bush cutter is a powered handheld device that uses a flexible monofilament line instead of a blade for cutting grass and other plants near objects. It consists of a cutting head at the end of a long shaft with a handle or handles and sometimes a shoulder strap.
  4. Snow blower-A snow blower, snowblower, or snow thrower is a machine for removing snow from an area where it is not wanted, such as a driveway, sidewalk, roadway, or runway. It uses electric power or a gasoline or diesel engine to throw snow to another location or into a truck to be hauled away.
  5. Snowplow-A snowplow (or snow plow, US English; in UK English, snowplough or snow plough) is a vehicle, or a device intended for mounting on a vehicle, for removing snow and sometimes ice from outdoor surfaces, typically those serving transportation purposes.
  6. Edger-An edger, also known as a lawn edger or stick edger, is a lawn-care tool used to cleanly separate a lawn from a walkway or other paved surface, such as a concrete sidewalk or asphalt path. Edgers may be manual or automated, typically employing a small two-stroke gasoline motor or an electric motor.
  7. Rake (tool)-A rake (Old English raca, cognate with Dutch raak, German Rechen, from a root meaning "to scrape together," "heap up") is an agricultural and horticultural implement consisting of a toothed bar fixed transversely to a handle, and used for the collection of leaves, cut hay and grass, etc., and, in gardening, for loosening the soil, light weeding and levelling, and generally for purposes performed in agriculture by the harrow.
  8. Shovel-A shovel is a tool for lifting and moving loose material such as coal, gravel, snow, soil, or sand. It is usually a hand tool consisting of a broad blade with edges or sides that is fixed to a medium-length handle.

  13. Mattock-A mattock is an agricultural tool similar to a pickaxe. It is distinguished by the head terminating in a broader blade rather than a narrow spike, which makes it particularly suitable for breaking up moderately hard ground.
  14. Pitchfork-A pitchfork is a tool with a long handle and long, thin, widely separated pointed tines (also called prongs) used to lift and throw loose material, such as hay, leaves, grapes, or other agricultural products. Pitchforks typically have from 2 to 6 tines and have different lengths and spacing depending on purpose.
  15. Plough-The plough (American spelling: plow) is a tool used in farming for initial cultivation of soil in preparation for sowing seed or planting. Ploughs are also used by industry underseas, for the laying of cables, as well as preparing the earth for side-scan sonar in a process used in oil exploration.
