It doesn't really matter what I'm doing with my tractor, ANY tractor time is good time. I've got most anything I need to do all kinds of jobs. I bought some of it ready made and some of it I built myself.
I even use it for "neighborhood transportation". One of my neighbors commented a week or so back, "you know you live in the country when your neighbors visit each other on a tractor"...lol.
Artist, your neighbor is right about visiting on a tractor and if you can "pee" behind the barn in daylight you really live in the country.
Behind the barn??!! Front porch baby!
Have a somewhat mentally disabled neighbor up the road and his New Holland IS his personal vehicle. He rides it 5 miles to the town transfer station every day. All nice and legally licensed for road use.
smilinjak, I can pee in front of my barn, but can't do it off the front porch like pj. DrZ, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. He's probably happy as anybody else to have any kind of vehicle.
A buddy of mine bought a new MF a few yrs back, about a 40 hp. He found out one of his employees that didn't have a license had been slippin out barhoppin on it late at night. He wasn't a happy camper about it either.
now you're telling your age smilinjak, working mules.
A buddy of mine lived out in the country and his dad was definately old school. He did truck farming and did it with a mule. My buddy was the oldest son so he was the #1 plowboy. And you know us kids in Jr High didn't cut him any slack. He was country when country wasn't cool.
Kids can be downright mean, think about it.
Yeah, I never had to corner my tractor up to get the bridle on it either...lol.
