I have a trike M and she turns in circle in a two car garage. Thats why Miss jiM had me build another barn, finished it in 4 days. Ask and ye shall receive. Go for the 3 wheel model.

You sound like some narrow minded professor type at an Institution of higher learning, get your nose out of the goverment funded grade book and grab on the next humor train that comes through your frail liberl mind. We conservative folks just love it when you liberals freak out at a light hearted joke. Hope you enjoy your TAX rebate.

The original post here was about a tractor for the lake in wet and sandy conditions. I don't know how turning in garage or barn building came into play. Do you guys know each other or is there some bashing going on here? Hopefully I am not getting in the middle of something I don't need to be. Just read the post and thought I would add comment. Jim, you said your M will turn around in the garage and by your advice I gather it is a three wheeled version. Turning it around in your garage on a dry surface is alot different than in sand. I heard those 3 wheeled front ends were actually heavier than the regular 2 wheeled narrow fronts becuase of heavier castings. With one less wheel this will distribute more weight to even smaller area. In sand it will sink lower than a regular 2 wheeled narrow front. This will decrease power and perhaps even some manueverability. I still say a wide front is the way to go. I also believe a two wheeled narrow front is better in sand than a single front, a single front however would be better than 2 wheeled narrow front on solid ground. I am not trying to cuase any waves here but give us some factual info on how that single front is better in sandy or wet conditions versus a 2 wheeled narrow front or wide front. If you run on different surfaces there is a big difference in what style of front end you have and how you get around on that surface. On hard surface it doesn't vary much from one style front end to another except in turning and maybe a very little in power. You get in soft ground and the difference will set the different styled front ends way apart.

jiM, he is not concerned about being able to turn his tractor around in a two car garage. and we don't care if you built your barn in 4 days.

Well, Senior Crazy first of all I'd like to commend you on being able to understand what a two car garage is given the fact you live in an apartment funded by govermnent sources. And if you even knew how to build a barn you could understand what an accomplishment it is to erect (another word you might have a problem with) a barn in four days, so get back on your snapper lawn tractor your uncle gave you and have a big day. Oh by the way, don't forget to put gas and oil in it, Uncle's Moe,Larry and Curley would be very upset if you blew it like you do every thing else.

Big jiM to you Sir

Today's Featured Article - Tractors and Winter - by Staff. Unfortunately, tractors and winter don't mix well. It seems that I can start out with my tractors in great running condition but sometime during the long cold dark winter they quickly revert to the lawn-art category. The lack of running, cold weather, and admitted neglect all take their toll on a machine. If you are lucky enough to not need your tractors during the winter months you can perform a few simple maintenance items to winterize and come spring have them going by reversing the process. If you need your tractor in ready-to-run condition (like that ... [Read Article]
