Default My wife's loves my tractor

Week two with my new x720 and I thought that it would be a great idea to show my wife how to use the tractor by mowing the back yard while I used the push mower to trim. She mowed the back yard and continued to mow the front yard too. I got zero seat time and it will take another week for the lawn to grow. Guess I need to find other duties for the tractor that only I can do. She loved how the tractor drove, how it cut and how quiet it was. I guess I will be sharing it with her.

, Your first mistake.

Once you let "THEM" drive, not even the promise for a new pair of shows will get "THEM" off.

I wrote here before which is just the oppisite at our house.

My wife wants nothing to do with driving my X720,
but will do all the trimming with our manual push mower.

Default Re: My wife's loves my tractor

That happened to me once when I was dating my wife. Her Grandparents lawnmower broke down and her Grandpa asked me to bring my mower over and mow the lawn. I did and my girlfriend wanted to try it and I got watch her mow the lawn. Now her allergies bother her and I can't get her on the mower.
