    Weird, PaulB? Possibly. Or lying? Most likely.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img][img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img] Not even I am that old, and I know you're a lot younger than I.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    How long before you need to mow again, JimBinMI? If it ever gets as dry up there as it is here, a looonnnng time.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/frown.gif[/img]

    Paul,
    Lets see. Number of hours of enjoyment with Cindy and Heather vs. number of hours of enjoyment on tractor. Long term gratification vs. short term gratification. I think I would make em wait also.

    PaulB,

    Thanks for the laughs! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img] [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I can't say that I agree though...I might be thinking "how long will I have this tractor, I can mow later" and "would they actually wait?". [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I did finish the field tonight, except for getting the edges closer like I want to. I was mowing for at least 45 mins. to an hour with the headlights on, pitch black out by the time I got done. Seems like I just had 80 hrs. on the tractor and I use it a little, got the rotary and wow...95 hours on it now! I need to get an oil filter, oil, and do the rest of the 100 hour maintenance! More fun times! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/cool.gif[/img]

    You could ask if they would like a ride on the tractor [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img].

    Now Rowski, haven't you read your operators manual? That would be unsafe (not to mention somewhat distracting).

    Paul,

    Sorry man. I love my little kubota but that is a no brainer. On the other hand, the odds of my wife sending that note are about as good as the odds of my B21 having grown into a D9 over night.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    I sure do like my tractor but I'll say this I also know where that kill knob is and if I ever saw a sight like that in a field around where I live---I do believe that knob would be getting pulled out and the tractor engine would be shut down pto still running and all!!![img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    But I can relate to what your line of thought is---but not anywhere that extreme thats all. I would have to take the birthday present and then go back to cutting with a really BIG smile on my face!!! We can dream can't we! The only thing that I may see walking out of the woods is a couple of deer or a rabbit so I have no worries there I guess.

    Well Mark we have something in common other than an orange tractor. The chances of getting a note like that from my wife are about the same!!!

    Jim,

    Congtats on the new mower!! I bought the same one for my B2100. I couldn't stop cutting things either. My father lives across the street from me and has a 30+ yr old Cub Cadet riding mower. Nice tractor, but the steering linkage is failing and it is very hard to drive. My dad is 69 and steering for a long time bothers his shoulder. Since I got the mower for my tractor, his 2 acre field is mowed at least once a week!! The bad thing for me is that he is retired and has more time to have fun with my tractor than I do. This fall, after the weeds die, I am going to walk through my property and cut all of the little stumps flush with the ground so that next year, I can use the mower without fear. Good luck with it and have fun.

    Mike.
