Black & Decker Lawncare Center

Black & Decker Lawncare Center

While many of us are preparing to shut down our lawn care duties until next spring, those of you in warmer climates still have work to do, and it's never too late for the rest of us to start planning for next spring. The Black & Decker Lawncare Center ($200) is a great way to do so, featuring a wall-mounting 3-port charger and holder for the included electric blower, Grass Hog edger and trimmer, and Hedgehog hedge trimmer. Just add a lawnmower and you've got everything you need to maintain a fine-looking, homeowners association-conforming lawn.

  • Gerber Shard

    While we might not know exactly what seven functions the sleek Gerber Shard ($8) will provide, we know enough to know we'll be on the pre-order list as soon as it's available. The lightweight, airline-safe keychain tool offers at the minimum a bottle opener, screwdriver, and nail puller, with a titanium nitride coating for corrosion resistance.

  • Cub Cadet Z Force S

    Whether you're a lawn care professional or just a guy with a big yard, you can get it cut quickly and greenly with the Cub Cadet Z Force S ($5,500-$6,500; 2010). As the first zero-turn riding mower with a steering wheel instead of lap bars, the Z Force S' wheel controls both the front wheels and the independently controlled back wheels for greater maneuverability, and boasts features like 48- or 60-inch triple-blade fabricated heavy duty decks, a dual hydrostatic transmission, and an optional liquid propane version that can cut your fuel costs by up to 30 percent while reducing emissions. Probably overkill if you don't have at least an acre and a half.
