My wife has been cool with my tractor obsession. Now when I brought this 4041 simplicity home she wants one. I am cool with that but she wants it to be pink and white. That's right pink and white. So any thoughts guy and how does everyone's wife act about their tractors

Tim, get her one that's pink and white.  You need all the support you can get from the wife.

Do what she says or if she doesn't tell you too much let it fade away.

Pink and White. If that's all it takes to make the world a better place to live I'd do in a moment.  :thumbs:

Ditto, in any scheme she wants...

"Yes Dear"



I wish my wife had my affliction. It would make the purchasing and storage easier...

The 4041 has that convenient dash mounted hydro for her. I think all white with pink frame and stripes should make her happy.

The problem is my wife has an affliction, for classic cars, and sea-doos, and quads. We both had to stop when we ran out of space.

 

A couple years ago, she spied a Suzuki sport quad chassis I had, and decided she wanted a quad with a dragon scales paint job.

I had to drop in a Honda engine, and scrounge a cheap set of plastics, but I gave her what she wanted. It just made life easier.

 

She's never complained about anything I brought home, and has yet to nag me about selling something.

My wife has been helping get all the horses ready for a parade on Saturday (9/13/14). She dosen't give me too much trouble about my hobby.

I am fortunate that she IS NOT a "pink" type of gal!

   You would be amazed at what we do to keep our wives happy!!!!!!!!!!!!  If all I had to do was spray a quart of pink and a pint of white to keep her happy I would do it in a heart beat.  My wife now wants a new kitchen!!!!!!!!!!!!

So paint it pink and white.  I would put any paint scheme on a tractor if it meant getting my wife to take a little interest in the hobby as something we could do together.  My wife is cool with everything unless it gets out of hand but she just doesn't get into going to the shows.

As long as it's not taking away from living $$$$$, she doesn't care.
