Naming them is a great idea, but maybe I'm just not creative enough. I have three, two of which are usually running (currently, just one is).

My son (12) often helps me drive them. They do have different model numbers, but more importantly, are different colors. So, I just refer to them as "The Black One" (Craftsman GS6500), "The Orange One" (Husqy GTH2548), and "The Red One" (Craftsman GT5000).

He really only drives the black one, as it has foot controls, where the other two are hand-controlled hydros (need him to focus on steering).

Re: Do you have names for you tractors/mowers

Re: Do you have names for you tractors/mowers

My wife has a name for my equipment...no, wait, you're talking about tractors, never mind. Wrong forum.


Nouveau Redneck
Sean in PA
1973 Ford 4000 3-cyl gas w/S-O-S & 60 inch Woods rotary mower
2008 John Deere X500
2015 John Deere X530
2014 Kubota BX25D w/50" snow blower

You know you might be a Nouveau Redneck if...
1. You use the cup holder on your tractor to hold your cosmopolitan instead of a beer
2. Your "Santa on a tractor" Christmas yard decoration is actually a high tech digital hologram.
3. Your deer camp cuisine is better than most 3 star restaurants.
