remember this
Tractors are fun to use, but never let your spouse or SO know this. It is very important for all tractor owners to keep this a secret. And, although they may suspect, never let family or friends refer to chores you do with your tractor as "playing." Correct them immediately -- you are working. Keep that grin off your face. Your tractor is not "your toy," it is a machine :D

Yes its fun but don't let your wife know always complain and say its hot and dirty and you wish you were doing something else. Because if she finds out your having fun she will find something else for you to do.:D

Willie...is that you? LOL

I like mine alot, and my significant other knows it. Luckily, she does see the yardwork as "work", and she appreciates it being taken care of.

Hmmmmm...should I stay in here and listen to three screaming heads, or should I enjoy the tranquility of a V-twin Kawi as I cruise the back 40? Tim Allen summed it up best when he said "AHRR, AHRR, AHRR!" I'll take the quieter V-twin. :)

I disagree, My tractors are toys and I am not ashamed to admit it. In fact I say all the time, " I have nice toys and people like them so much they pay me to play in their yards with them!" I have been playing with my new red whirly-gig machine the last few days and it is a definate cash flow inhancer, and it" WORKS " better then I even expected it to. There is that word again.

I've been sitting on the same John Deere 316 since 1979, and I have the same smile on my face whn I get on now that I did then. Cutting grass has almost become a Zen-like thing for me where I become one with the machine. I do all my own repairs, so I've gotten to know the tractor over the years and I sometimes think the machine has gotten to know me as well. Plowing snow is the hardest thing I ask of it, and it seems to want to please me even if it is only 20 degrees outside and 20" already on the ground. That tractor has outlasted 3 trucks, 2 address changes, and 5 women, so it has value to me on it's faithfulness alone.

So do I have fun on my tractor? On a BAD day the answer is YES, and on a good day it's even better than fun:D

Ernieg,
The first truck was a 1978 Ford F-150 that was wrecked with 70,000 miles on it, the next one was a 1982 Ford F-250 that the front end was damaged and the insurance company would not pay to fix because it had 100,000 miles on it. The 1991 Dodge Dakota I currently own has 232,000 miles on it and although too small for some of the things I used to do is still going strong. All were bought new by me and well maintained. I've never owned a Chevy, not because of a dislike, but couldn't find what I wanted when I needed it.

If I would have thought of it I would have put Fordies into the mix... I was wondering, your tractor is a 79. Seems that you are handy,suprised that you didnt keep one of the fords to re-do yourself?:D

I made the mistake of smiling when I brought the second tractor home. Now the wife believes my "business" is nothing more than me trying to get out of Daddy Duty to play on my grown up go-cart. "But I gotta pay for this tractor somehow honey, you know, so I can buy a bigger one."

She thought that was about as funny as a cry for help.

topdj, always keep the little woman wondering, sure it is work, that way you dont have to help with the dishes, laundry or vacuuming, i would rather be mowing personally. always clean and polish on the tractor where she cant see you or she will say why dont you ever do that to my car? 5:30 am works good for me while everyone is asleep. good luck with your new ride.
