Stuff happens. Nice to have good neighbors, whatever the color of their tractor, thats not important :fing32:.
You're lucky to have such a good neighbor. There are too many of our fellow members that don't have that luxury. Buy that man a beer! :fing32:
Couldn't have said it any better than the gentlemen above!Nice tractors are nice tractors! Brand loyalty only goes so far! I agree get that man a beer!
Every time I get stuck, I say it will be the last...I will admit that it doesn't happen much anymore and usually I have the FEL on and use the hydraulics the get me up out of the mud. BUT I refuse to have my neighbor and his "orange thingy" help! I would let my 2320 sit in the mud until the mud dries first. I will admit that part of it is just my neighbor, who would never let me hear the end of it, because "the truth is that my B7510 is a better tractor than yours", and secondly, just call me stubborn.So I got a little overconfident with the x500 today and managed to get it stuck all the way down by my rivine. My neighbor was more than willing to come to the rescue with that orange thingy.
Hmmmmm ridicule from the orange guys or wrath of the wife ?There wasn't much time to get pictures when it was stuck. The thing only has five hours on it and my wife was due home any time. She didn't really need to see that. The neighbor and I had fun with it though!!
That comment to me is an open door for a new tractor....then again just about any comment around me is an excuse for a new piece of gear!Had I done the same thing here's exactly what my El Paso, Texas wife would have said, "I knew that tractor wasn't as good as you said it was! Look, the neighbor had to come over and save your butt! In Texas we'd have hooked up a couple of horses to it and pulled it across the State! Next time I'll get an expert to pick out the tractor!" And we've been married for 27 years!
