Warning: Keep your wife/girlfriend away from the tractor

This last weekend I made the mistake of asking my wife to drive the Loader/Backhoe while I loaded the front bucket with wood. You have to understand my wife hated driving my 8n. I gave her a quick 2 minute course on operating and the controls. NO PROBLEM...

After 15 minutes of working, she says "you need to install a cup holder", yeah I've been thinking about it...just hasn't been a high priority. After we had been working for a couple of hours we needed to head back through the woods to the house. I said I would drive it back and get some seat time, but that was not going to happen, she wanted to drive it back...she was having FUN, 95-97 degree heat index...and she was having fun...she never has had fun when its that hot outside.

After parking it for the night she started listing off improvements needed on the tractor...fan, radio, cushion for the seat, a spinner knob for the steering...oh, don't forget the cupholder...

Guess I have to let her drive it since she supported buying it, I will just have to sneek out earlier in the morning for SOME seat time.

Mine was told by her friends not to date anyone who drove a pickup. For sure don't date anyone who farms. Never, never show any interest in farm chores.

She was kinda scared of tractors & big machinery when we got married, but now she does more heavy tillage than I do - and maybe better even - and just bought her own tractor.....

(Of course, her advisor friend was married to a pickup driving farmer, so I'm not sure that advise was too serious... ;)

She says she doesn't ever want to plant. I think she'd make straighter rows than I do, but heck, I want to do _something_ around here yet. :)

Yep, I got yelled at for getting too close to the house with the bushhog. Wife told me that was HER area to mow with her little IH Cub Cadet.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
