My 15 yr old city kid grandson came to visit last month. He grew up on fast food, video games and juvie. Well... after a safety briefing to explain what everything is and what it does, i got him on my SC.. With coaching and 1st gear only, the boy took to the tractor like a duck to water. I let him disk the garden while i picked up roots and such..

I explained to him that a tractor is not a toy, but a tool to do a job and that they are dangerous and can hurt you.
He listened to every word I said and did a good job for the first time driving anything.

Now he wants to come back this summer after school and help me and grandma on the farm

here is a photo of a city kid on the farm

You will never know what that means to him. Years ago would have cousins kids come and let them ride drive tractors. They are now grown and some have brought their city kids just to enjoy old red.

Curious. Is there a reason your rear tire tread is what I would consider backwards? You may learn me something.
