You could burn the weeds, get hot water for a cuppa and attach a plough and dig the garden all at the same time.

These are spectacular pieces of equipment arn,t they but you need a farm or a large paddock to own one and store it. Reminded me of that well known guy Fred Dibner who demolished chimneys and was a bit of an enthusiast. I can't imagine one being very popular if you tried to park one in our little street !
