I love all the other ideas too.
Bryant's idea makes 20.
I've seen juicers that have a perforated tub that uses a finely perforated vinyl sheet, to prevent solids from passing, as the material is spun. I wonder if a similar mesh could be used, to better filter your material.
21. Giant blender or juicer. Get some large juicer blades, and blend commercial quantities of applesauce or what have you. A stainless steel lawn mower blade, would seem about right. Not to be operated by children, or most adults.
22. Lawn roller. Fill it with concrete, to create a lawn roller. Be sure to get the axle assembly centered, before you pour in the concrete. Or, something could be bolted on while the concrete is green hard. Two or more good be joined.
23. Lawn aerator. Pretty much the same idea as a roller, except that the number of the holes would be enlarged, to allow bolts to protrude. As the thing is dragged along, the bolts that dig into the ground, causing a little holes to be pressed.
24. Gabion basket. This would make a good gabion basket for placing a fence post or gate post. Sometimes, you don't want to put in a fence post or can't, because of near surface bedrock. Center your post in the tub, and fill it up with rubble rock or any other heavy material. Fill it beyond full, for maximum holding capacity. Put one of these on each side of your entry to the driveway, so that the space is clearly defined at night. That will keep some people out of the ditch. It should make it easy to give directions. "Watch for the two shiny wash tubs, that hold up the black and white reflector poles."
The gabion baskets in the photo, are very utilitarian. I much prefer the shiny tubs.
