Isn't there a law about addicting someone so young?   :rolling: :poke:

 

I took a Snapper RER out to our son's yesterday and I let Jack take it off the trailer and then told him to go for it.  The expression on his mothers face was priceless!  She was terrified that Jack was going to crash or something but when I told her, he had been driving it around out here she settled down and he did just fine.

 

Thanks for sharing Alan.

To much fun!  My grandaughter loves riding but doesn't quite get the steering down.  She is almost 5.  Her daddy said she got the hang of steering with his craftsman lawnmower but I haven't seen that yet.

Oh, the batting of the eyes.......little girls do that to melt the hearts of their daddys and grandaddys. My wife still does that to me if she wants something and yes, it still works after 25 years of marriage.

Great video Alan!  Case & I got the newest to me John Deere F935 out yesterday.  I drove it out of the shop, then he "took over".  He drove it himself all the way through the cow feed allies, around the manure pit, then around the shed, then parked it back in the shop.  I never touched the steering wheel, and he's just 3 years old!  I did control the hydro though, and a couple times I had to back up to prevent a slow moving accidental bumping.  But in his defense, rear steering is trickier than front.  Kids are fun!   :thumbs:

That's cool, my little girls won't even get close to my tractors. They don't like the noise.  Hopefully they will get over that soon.  Cool video.

Thanks for the video, Alan.

Nice to see Loran having a good time there.

You might as well start painting it her favourite colour. I think

you're right. You've lost that tractor.

Great video, way to get the young ones hooked!

 

To be honest though, when I saw the title, I wondered why you were putting an outdated navigational system on a tractor.   Didn't remember your little girls' name was Loran.

I forget Alan, how old is Loran?  Case had a definite advantage over her....he had power steering!

Almost 3 1/2. And the DB steers pretty easy, I guess you could say "So easy a three year old could do it." :smilewink:
