A keeper indeed. I notice she is also willing to ride without the benefit of a seat. To my personal surprise, my wife, while willing to run a Gravely from time to time, has yet to accept an invitation to ride on my Massey.

My wife drives my tractors quite a bit. And now I have my 3 yr granddaughter driving my Wheel Horse 857 around instead of her little Barbie Jeep. She claims it's her tractor. Looks like I'll be trying to locate another tractor for her to have as her own.

Yep, she's a keeper. I've had my wife on mine, but anymore there are to many volunteers to worry about going and asking if she will.

My wife only sits on them when they're not running...But that's OK, because I won't do Zumba with her either :laughingteeth: She's a keeper none the less!

My wife supports me in my GT addiction, but she has never driven one, nor wants to. Besides myself, the only other person here that ever drives one is my 86yr old Dad. He sometimes has to crank one up in the shop to move it to make room for repair of a piece of equipment. Half the time he has trouble firing them up, as they each have their own individual "personality".

Yes, you have a keeper!

She's definately a keeper! My wife use to get on the tractors occasionally, but the last time she got on my B-80, she let the clutch out a little to fast while in 3rd, and it pulled a wheelie. You know how that goes, it was my fault, and my Wheel Horse tried to kill her. :confuse: She's still a good one though, and I'll get her back on some day. :thumbs:

I got to thank you guys for bringing this to my attention. I never thought about a wife that wouldn't use a GT. I often have worked a town job and sometimes things need done when the sun shines. The only bad thing that my wife has ever done on any tractor is break a tine arm off a new rotary hay rake coming thru a gate. I knew something was amiss when I pulled in that night because the tractor was smack in the drive. When I came thru the door she was already blubbery with tears, I'm NOT completely stupid... I did not yell, I just let her wear down and told her it would be o.k. I did however use a lot of "those words" when I was pressing off the collars, flanges, bearings etc. during repairs in 90 plus degree heat. Two weeks ago a neighbor borrowed that same rake and took out 4, yes FOUR tines on a tree while raking hay in his bottom land @ $137.00 each tine before labor he now has the most expensive 35 square bales of hay I've seen yet.
Back to the wife and GT's, she'll jump on any of them that have whatever she wants done attached to them. Muck her barn, haul trash to the truck, till her garden, mulch plants, however she will generally leave the lawn-mowing to me or the boys.
Yep, boys thanks for reminding me once again how blessed I am by this woman.

Well Saturday Morning, I had to go off and mow the yard at my old place. When I got home the murray with the garden cart was sitting out by the strwaberry patch. Jo had gotten on it and used it for the first time since we moved 1 1/2 yrs ago.
I'm all for that!!
