Consumer Reports Home and Garden Issue
The latest issue of Consumer Reports delves into some home and garden items that you all might be interested in now that spring is almost here. Among other things, the magazine has rankings of the latest string trimmers and mowers and tractors.
The relevant articles are posted up online but without a password you can get the intro, but not the actual product ratings. Still, if you're in the market for one of these items, even the intros are quite helpful
Unfortunately, the tractor article doesn't rank the 1947 8N Ford Tractor, like the one we're currently tinkering around with out in the shed (pictured). Because it's an essential character in the tractor pantheon, and far outdistances any tractor made since, we'll rank it for you:
Noise: Unbelievable. Deafening.
Exhaust: Smokes like a forest fire.
Power: Can do anything.
Badass quotient: Think Al Pacino in Scarface.

Consumer Reports is a joke. Regardless of performance they will rate higher priced products lower.
Also, having pointed this out on the website, they soon removed the ability to comment. Coincidence? I think not.
