Last Wednesday, Dad asked me if I would get the MF10 with the narrow tiller for him to use in his garden.

 

Ryan got one pic of that, and Mom using their GT6000 mowing.  Sorry it's so small, it was on the phone.

Today, Dad asked about the cultivators I bought recently.  Decided to use the ones I had from last year & add a couple of teeth.

We put it on Ryan's 10 and turned him loose.  He had a ball.

I may have a new convert in the family :D

Looks like Ryan just lost a tractor my friend!  :D   How old is your Dad....I know you've told me, but I forget.  It's easy to tell he's enjoying himself!  :thumbs:

He's coming up on 74 in a few months...

Sure hope he's enjoying the GT's for many years to come.  If he lives to my Dad's age, you have at least 14 more years to share with him.

Well that's it.  You're just going to have to bring him to plow day now and show him what fun is.

I don't know if your dad would allow the garden tractors to replace the larger tractors but it looks like he might be pretty close to it :D

 

Glad you all are having fun, that is what it's all about.

Great pictures Alan!  It's great to see these GT's being used for what they were designed to do. The 10 is a nice size for doing those garden chores like cultivating and tilling.

That old Adage"Horses for Courses" comes to mind.  Tractors of any size have their place in different applications.  Dad was out helping me work on the Murray Yard King last week, and kept going on about how well it was put together for a "Cheap Garden Tractor".
