I had a co-worker who always gave his cars names, such as Betsy, Lulu, etc.

 

Does anyone have pet names for their tractors?

 

I never have, I just use the manufacturers 'given' name. 

 

Of, course, being a family friendly forum, I wont mention the names I call them when

the wrench slips and I bust my knuckles! 

 

 

 

What do you call your tractor?

My MF12 was always just a GT for many years. Now that I'm restoring it my wife is claiming it. Although all the parts are hanging from pieces of coat hangars she is calling it " Miss Massey". I just hope she doesn't expect that name to go on it.  :(

I'm bad about nicknames.  I move quite a few pieces through my shop, and each one gets a nickname.  A few examples follow,

 

There was a Great Lakes Junior Chief, affectionately known as "June Bug"

 

There was a Gilson tractor, painted an awful white, known as "Ugly"

 

There is a little two stroke Power Products engine, still known as "Buzzer"

 

There are a few pieces left of "Clunker" an old Wisconsin engine two cylinder that was frozen solid. 

 

I give so many nicknames that sometimes those who know exactly what I'm working on don't know what I mean.

So, if you're ever in Bens shop and he tells you: he needs "twisty" and it's on the bench past buzzer, next to clunkers head. Just don't trip on ugly's deck, it's kinda hanging out... It'll be ok, look for the cordless drill...
