Too many tractors?

Recommended Posts

Hick

I know, compared to some of youse guys I'm a mere beginner!

But the Wife Unit says I have too many lawn tractors. I don't know what she means; I have one for every purpose!

John Deere 216 for rear ripper / blade work in summer, snowblower in winter.
John Deere 210 for dozer work.
Deutz-Allis 1920 for general utility work.
John Deere X540 for mowing the lawn.

The 216 was the lawn mower from 1998 through 2017.

If I owned only one Simp among my tractors, it would be the one dedicated to mowing. My brother bleeds green, and even he will admit my old Sovereigns mow better than his green machines.

The 1920 had a 60" deck that I had hoped to fix up. It was badly rusted and I didn't have the time.  After I bought the X540 I hauled the Deutz deck off to the scrappers.

Too many tractors? Mine complains about too many yard cutting devices! She has no idea that I am picking up another Yazoo on Tuesday...And if I wanted her to know....That will make 3 Yazoos that I can use, all walk behind, 2 self propelled. You cannot own too may of them. One can have too many Cub Cadets, or too many John Deere, but you need more than one of each of them so you can repair one and use the one you repaired last
