Sounds like a great excuse to buy another tractor to replace it with.

 

Absolutely.  Exactly where I was at. 

 

Tell her that you have to keep your reputation up, and since she wants that tractor and took it from the collection, you're suffering from abuse on the internet.  The only way to fix it is to buy another tractor.

I bought my wife a Gator. She leaves my tractors alone.

You migt want to pull out that nice, shiny new rebuilt Kohler engine and replace it with that greasy beater of a Tecumsah, though. She won't drive it above a crawl anyway.

Yep Rick, you're up the creek, without a paddle now.

You might as well paint it pink. But, make sure none of the "guys"

see you doing that. Close the garage door.

After you're done painting it, push it outside, and leave town

for a couple of weeks. Time heals. The "guys" will forget.......

I'm thinking that a cub 982 might make up for the shame and degradation of having a pink tractor in the herd!  Or maybe a G.T. with a FEL.   This could work into my favor after all. :D  :D :D

What's the matter with a pink Horse? I think they look cute... (BTW-that's a good way to earn points with the wife if you say that while she's on it...)

now you have to make sure that it is ready any time that she needs/want to use it or if it is not working she will get one of yours

it has to start easy for her and gas up ready to use

Yep paint it pink!! Peace is priceless! Besides if she off doing her chores, Your not as likely to find a shovel or spade in your hands!!
And a pink horse has to cost less than a new Gator!! So your just being frugal.

Once the approved shade of pink has been chosen, don't forget a lil xtra for the cart, to match everything up at once. :D  I've read of guys saying they wanted to build one like it but this may be the first I've seen. :thumbs:  wouldn't mind seeing detail shot(s) of rigging. BTW, does it dump too?

Any time a family member takes an interest in our hobby its a good thing. Explain to your wife that it's less expensive to restore 2 tractors at the same time, and that if she pitches in on parts cleaning, things will go faster.
