Abstract/Contents:Suggests that "golf courses could really make use of a junkyard dedicated to golf course maintenance machinery," meaning to much money is spent on replacing entire pieces of equipment rather one or two parts. Provides stories of times when a part was taken from a unworkable machine and placed on different equipment, saving time and money. Describes Midwest businesses that "have been created that are essentially sophisticated junkyards for ag equipment." Notes the process is a fraction of the cost of a new part.
Note:Pictures, color
