Boats, happiest two days of a man's life - The day he buys a boat, and the day he sells it.

LD- yeah, she ran the " Transformer", once. It's fast , and kinda scary for her, though it makes short work of the 4 acres we cut now. Now that I have new bedknives in it, I can run it in the open areas while she does the tricker areas with the hydro rider. Win- win.

Ok my girlfriend is a little up tight when it comes to my addiction when it comes to garden tractors....


Any updates on your situation?

It might be a kindness to tell her your going to make a career of mowing lawns. That way she can bail if this isn't what she had in mind..... or did you set a date for the wedding? (Man, them hormones really suck!!!)

Why are husbands like lawn mowers?

They are difficult to get started, emit foul smells, and don't work half the time.

I read this all and laugh. My wife actually talked me into buying a Wheel Horse last night. Has surprised me by actually buying her own tractors with out me and bringing them home on her own, and she works on them. We have over 40 Wheel Horses Not sure how we got to this point but it's been fun.
I have to agree with wawcub47 .Besides being my wife, shes my business partner, c f o, but most of all, my best friend.Im a very lucky hillbilly!

Right now I'm in the middle of a 1,600 mile tractor/attachment buying road trip.

The wife and I were talking last night and I mentioned that I really want to put Olcowhand's next plow day on our calender for next year.

She asked if there were any other 'events' that I would like to do. She said that she always had fun back in the days when I used to fly R/C sailplanes and we traveled all over the place for contests.

Looks like there will be a decent sized trailer, hopefully something like 7' x 14' with a ramp, in my future so I can take at least two of my tractors to various shows/plow days.

I have some pretty rare Bolens tractors and accessories, and it would be nice to get them out there for other folks to see them.

My wife absolutely hated my GT hobby. That was until I managed to turn one into a 27' pool for her. Now she doesn't care at all. Distractions are the key to a happy hobbyist wife lol!
