    Very happy with Artillian 6 wheel ballast box!

    Just wanted to give props to Chris on his ballast box trolley... thing is a work of art and functions as good as it looks, which is my kind of piece! Even though this is a ballast box trolley, the fit and finish is absolutely perfect, as I expected. I keep my machine clean and "polished up" so having everything nice, shiny and green is what I like and the trolley fits right in! Neighbor asked me if it was something that I built, as he knows I'm a show car nut and always customizing something on the Mustang and since I got the 1-series, he keeps saying that my meticulous / OCD is spreading to the tractor! Jokingly, I told him that there are others out there that like to take care of their machines and even some that build parts that could go on a garage queen car, hahaha!

    This is my first Artillian purchase and after this experience, there will be MANY more!

    Chris - How did you know that Werther's were my favorite!? Hahaha!

    Werther's! All I ever got was left over Xmas candy.
    For a while, all my spare money went to Artillian. Then the wife dropped the bomb on me with all the things she wanted for herself. To this day I still think Chris and her were working together.

    I'm sure if I don't buy anything (now that I've somewhat committed to more purchases), I will most likely get downgraded to Xmas candy or maybe an M&M or two, hahahaha! Since I picked up the CMP dethatcher and the ballast box trolley, my better half is starting to ask questions and look out for packages a bit more now... I think she is sensing a trend, since packages used to arrive for the car all the time and she was fine with the one hobby, but now that there is another "hobby" developing, I'm sensing some concern on her part, so I may be able to get one more purchase in and then I'll be on the wagon for a while - not voluntarily of course.

    Just tell SWMBO (she who must be obeyed) that a tractor without implements is just a high dollar ATV. And a slow one at that. A tractor is just the motor for your tools. Like having a drill without bits.She wouldnt buy a mixer without a bowl or spoons? ....just playing devils advocate. Good luck....and I assume no liability for anything I post

    I really, really, really like this approach! I think I could relate this to her having that perfect pair of shoes for a particular dress/outfit because we all know, without the right shoes, the dress/outfit is useless! Yes, this has to work!

    I'm sure I'll need some luck, flowers, jewelry, that perfect pair of shoes, maybe even pick out that perfect dress, another bribe of some sort, yaaaaaaaaaaa....
