Sometimes I think that I'm more addicted to the forum. The comraderie (probably spelled that wrong) here is incredible. Ask a question about a Massey and your answer to the question could come from a Bolens guy/gal or any other GT enthusiest. Unheard of on other forums. So I think alot of the therapy comes from you guys and gals. Time in the seat is just time in the seat, but when shared on GTT it becomes TIME IN THE SEAT! Does that make sense? :D

Casey, I feel your pain Brother, I have a restore project in the wings just waiting for me to devote all my resources into, but everytime I get ready to get on it, something on my working tractor needs attention. My philosophy is that I HAVE to have ONE good running machine at all times, it can't let me down.

The restores and the fixer uppers have to take a back seat to that one machine being ready to go when I need it. Even though it means having to completely re-outfit and set it up for different duties a few times a week, example Mow, then drop the deck, hang the front weights, install the sleeve hitch, turn ground with the moldboard, switch out the tiller, plumb that hydraulic lines for the tiller, work the garden soil, undo everything, and rehang the mower deck in time to catch up with the fast growing lawn.....then do it all over again when a neighbor asks for help on their garden plot. The only fun time is seat time when it gets that hectic.

Eventually I will have a dedicated machine for every job, but I have to keep that one running no matter what.


I want to dedicate half of them lol.

Ross, you said a mouth full there. I agree, people are here to share their knowledge, no matter the brand.

That's another reason I became a Site Supporter. I could have said thank you and moved on. Instead, I said thank you in a much bigger way. If my contribution will help this site grow and continue to be what it is, I'm more than willing to pay it. The people on this site are just awesome.

I agree. I need to have hobbies to reduce stress. I have been on here a month or 2 and have been very happy with the friendly and mostly non partisan nature of the posting. The moderation is excellent and members are willing to share information and solutions to problems.

It is easy to share tips, ideas, and info when the place has a relaxed family feeling to it, like this place. :D

There's more truth to this than most people would believe.
