I've just been speaking to a guy here about it and he said they have a saw that I could have to cut the wood i collect but it works on a PTO, I'm guessing these walkers don't have PTO?

We have a Grillo with a BCS 5' sickle bar and a Bertha rotary plow. Changing implements is a strong person's job, running the sickle bar requires similar strength, the rotary plow is an incredible work-out. Don't believe the videos, it's not a lark, but it does the job where even a mini-tractor wouldn't fit.
We sometimes think we will buy the Grillo power wagon to move apples out of the orchard to the crush pad, but then I look at the price and think, yikes! Maybe that's import fees. We are a ways off from that decision. But I don't regret the initial purchase of the Grillo. Here in the US they don't depreciate very fast either.
