Default Electric and gasoline powered tools

Essential tools:

Chain saw. Remington Electric Chain Saw

Also: The Black and Decker Alligator. A tiny chain saw but very useful.

You got to have a lawnmower even if you don't have any grass.

Dr. Trimmer. This has a string trimmer in a mower format. It will mow waist high weeds, but gets hung up on viney plants like wisteria and woody privet. For those you need and electric

Hedge Trimmer.

Oh, well, if we're talking power gear, let's not forget the big stuff

Massey-Ferguson tractor with bushhog. Convert to biodiesel if practical (ours isn't, but will be eventually).

M-F also needs a borrowed plow so that you can break ground once but aren't tempted to plow with the heavy tractor and compact the soil every year.

If you have a dirt road to maintain like we did (do?), a scraper blade is also essential.

Dually farm truck for hauling gravel for said road is also helpful, but ours needs a major overhaul or perhaps even a new engine.

A Jeep is very useful for pulling up underneath wild fruit trees to make something to stand on while picking

Oh, and I heartily second Doccat's chipper/shredder. Something I don't have, and my compost suffers for it.
