    Default Need Help, Really

    That is what my wife keeps telling me anyway. In my profile you will see that I live in the NC mtns on the side of a steep mtn. 1 unusable acre. I do have a long steep driveway that has to be maintained after almost every rain. I know, I could hire some one to do it for me. It's just not the same. As of today, I own three tractors, that's right ( 3 ). I am running out of parking places. Today I was at the dealer, just looking around, not buying, so I thought. Well he showed me this used Kioti LK 3054 with fel and 118hrs on it. It had a price of $11,400 on it. I told him that it was nice and that I could use a 4x4 on my driveway but not interested. Well, I wasn't at the time. I looked at all of the new tractors on the lot, did a little dreaming and walking. Dealer approached me again so I offered him 10,000. Now it belongs to me. So, did I do good or am I just sick with tractor fever?

    I don't see a problem....just explain it to her in ways a woman can understand! I've got 2 tractors, and may buy my third this spring. My wife just says "just get the one you want". Good luck with the Kioti, all I've heard is good comments on them.

    A dozen roses for the wife may ease some pain!!

    You Poor Sick Man. My heart goes out to you and hopes you are never cured of this particular ailment.
    It has been proven by the members of TBN and supported by the Surgeon General, that the Only Possible Treatment for this Financially Debilitating disease is SEAT TIME !!!! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img]
    Good luck with you new Kioti. Stay Safe.
    If you put smaller tires and wheels on one side of your tractor, will it ride level on those steep mountains ? [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Just explain to her it's like women and their shoes - you need different colors.

    I don't know. There's almost something obscene about 1 guy having FOUR tractors when some of us are struggling just to get our first!! Only kidding [img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]. My only question is how do you decide which one you're going to use? Flip a coin?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    You just helped me a bunch. My wife though 2 tractors was pushing it. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Now I can tell her 3 or 4 tractors are what other people have, that will go along with the 3 pick-ups I have.

    Well you used to have 1 tractor for each day of the weekend, so now which one is going to be left out??

    But really, I think the answer is to have 1 for each day of the WEEK, and I mean a 7 day week too [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

    Must be nice to be rich [img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img]

    Cheers

    Thanks guys. The wife thanks you also, for thinking that I am sick. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/grin.gif[/img].

    Paul... I tried the roses bit, didn't work. Finally had to say " just get the one that you want" about the new car she wants.[img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img] Oh well,,,,

    Mark..... I don't know, but if it is the only cure I guess that I will have to try the 'Only Possible Treatment' I sure hope that it DOESN'T work. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/crazy.gif[/img]Smaller wheels&tires [img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img] I'll look into that one. attached pic, not me, just my driveway.

    Chris... The shoe thing won't work. Not enough room to store that many $$$$ worth of shoes. We're getting the colors though. white p-up, green car, black car, blue tractor, red tractor, now the other orange tractor. is IT really 'the other' orange?

    MReeter... Thanks, I kind of thought that I had done good. One never knows though. Also kind of glad to have this tractor fever. Lots of fun and you get a little work done at the same time.

    Golfgar4... Now just hold on a min. Let's not rush things. I only have Three tractors. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Maybe next year I'll have four. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img] I have always given equal time to each tractor. Don't want any color to feel left out. With the new 4x4 Kioti, I may tend to show a preference. Guess that I will have to explain to the others that I am making the new guy do most of the work. {wink]

    Frank... Thanks. I have lots of will power, usually don't have the check book. Just so happens that the wife was with me and it was in her purse. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/clever.gif[/img]
    Thanks again guys. Everyone here has been a big help in my desision making.... So, I guess that it is all your fault that I am sick. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/laugh.gif[/img] When I get in from work at 1am and crank up the tractor, if my neighbor complains, I'm sending him to see you. [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
