Hey this is a good one. Sure like one other member stated about his grandest son. I have had sooo many that finally my grandest son said can we name them so that he can remember them easier so my 63-64 Landlord was named "George" after curious george and then there's "Bear" my 1971 Homelite after big bear and then there's Mr. Ed my 3212 you know the talking horse Geez -need I go on. Because after the tractors Branden is nameing everything with an engine on it and we have not even gotton to the ones at my son's house.. Thanks like I said this is a good one and of course sometimes I even call them a few names myself like "fsh and then some. >>->happyjack<-<<

I have occasionally referred to mine as %&%$$!! pieces of %&##%!! - then I figure out what's wrong, fix it and later brag about what great machines they are.

My B-1 is "Honey" when she runs right. When she is acting up she is called all sorts of horrible names. I call the new Sovereign "Bitch" because she was expensive and doesn't do exactly what I want her to. I glad to know there are other nut-cases who name their machinery. My wife thinks I'm crazy for referring to machinery like is a person and/or alive.

Thought of this on the way to work this morning.... (These tractors are addicting!) Both my VW bugs ('53 and '64) have names, but I haven't "discovered" nor given either of my tractors a name. They need names, since my family doesn't care about the model names/numbers, and you need to be able to quickly identify them. They do seem to have become a part of the family, after all, and have developed distinct personalities. I know some of you have tractors (and cars and trucks) with names... so I know I'm not completely alone (and weird) in thinking this way. Does your tractor(s) have a name? What is their name? How did they come to have that name? Kent

My Allis-Chalmers B-10 and B-112 they both have names. The B-10 is called "Ally-Chompers" which I named in 1991 when I was four and started driving the B-10. My B-112 is named "Rough and Ready" I named it that since it is always ready for work.

To be 13 agian would be great. I reamber when I was 13 We had a wonderboy 700 that we kept working on. Now a few years older and I am once agian working on a wonderboy 700 but now the new 700 sits inside and covered. Don't want it to get dirty!!! Tractor has no name but I do keep Bob in the shed right next to it. You know as Bob Cat. Hell of a nice guy to keep around and you know he never yells at me. Nice freind he is

My daughter named my AC 312 "Alice". Alice is my next project tractor-- needing paint (Persian Orange), rewiring, and mechanical work-- but she will sit as long as a year or two while I complete another slow-paced project tractor and attachments. That tractor is "Bob". Bob is a homely Bolens 1050 (Brown and White) built in 1966-- but he has numerous useful attachments with him. So we have Bob and Alice here. Suppose they can have a family?
