Commercial Grade Power Garden Equipment for the Hobby Farm and Serious Gardeners or Human Powered Equipment

Updated on May 21, 2014

Power Dog Equipment is USA Amish made used widely by fleet rental stores and commercial growers.

If you’re a serious gardener you know the home owner power equipment being sold in home and garden centers is nowhere near what was being made and sold to the homeowner 50 years ago.

Back then things were made from heavy duty metal that was welded and not stamped out of thin sheet metal as it is today.

Power equipment was matched with long lasting cast iron sleeve engines that kept on working well into the next generation.

To find that type of equipment today you have to step up into professional quality equipment used in landscaping and commercial grower applications.

The Amish known for their quality made products also have difficulty in finding old fashioned products to maintain their self-sufficient life style.

While the Amish do not use grid power they do use gas powered equipment in their gardens where a team of horses used in the fields are not practical for the garden.

When they lose trust in manufactured equipment they develop and build their own for use within the Amish communities.

As non Amish also seek the same durability for their own use they turn to stores like Cottage Craft Works .com to locate Amish made goods and products.

Power Dog Equipment began in a small Amish welding shop located in Indiana. They developed a line of gardening and landscaping power equipment that uses hydraulic wheel motors and drives to operate the machines.

By adding a hydraulic pump instead of a direct or belt drive the Amish found they could transfer more power to drive wider walk behind power equipment.

Hydraulic powered wheels are also used on most zero turn mowers. Hydraulic fluids can be transferred much faster and smoother to operate the wheel drives over traditional transmissions.

This allows the operator to make sharper and quicker turns than manual steering systems.

Hydraulics and the weight of the machinery creates a much smoother transfer of power to the task at hand and not to the operator. This takes away the fatigue often associated with a lighter weight home owner machines.

Power Dog Equipment is well known in the equipment rental business’s as many stock their rental fleet with this heavy duty power equipment.

Rental equipment stores are probably the ultimate testing ground for equipment as people will tend to abuse rental equipment and push the limits more so than someone who owns it themselves.

Large gardens need a lot of prep and attention during the planting and growing season. The Power Dog hydraulic garden tillers are available in an 18” wide and 24” wide machine to make quick work.

There heavy duty construction are built for heavy use day in and day out. Hobby farmers and country estate owners are finding commercial grade equipment to be a good investment.

The math is rather simple do you buy something that will be worn out in as little as three to five years to buy over again and again or do you buy one time that will last a lifetime if it is maintained well?

Pricing for the Power Dog equipment is equivalent to a good zero turn mower. Ranging between $2900 and $5600.

To purchase Power Dog Equipment copy and paste this link to the Cottage Craft Works General Store Web Site.

While there take time to visit the home page and see over 5000 other high quality products for the home, farm, and garden mostly made and used by the Amish.
