    Winter Fun with Gators

    I'm sure most of you guys are like us and are wishing the Spring would finally come already! Although we definitely had a great winter for business, we are sick of the snow and are wanting it to warm up so we can play with our tractors.

    Any of you guys starting to have the cabin fever set in yet?

    We thought we would make the most of this snowy winter and have some fun with our Gators -- We hope you Gator owners are doing the same too! Check out some pictures of our recent attempts at climbing the snow piles of our buildings.

    No playing in the snow here (and we do not get that much anyway...) but here is picture of my electric Gator with a load of firewood, and a view of a dusting of snow out the garage window -- note the ferns in the picture which are much more emblematic of our normal climate...

    Heres mine with his cold feet. They sure do stay clean when the ground is covered in snow.

    Todd,

    Nice picture with the millstone in the background...!

    Yes, the electric Gator (E-Gator) is handy and quiet -- plus it does not have any objectionable fuel smells if you park it inside like shown above with my firewood.

    I sold mine a little more than a year ago when we sold the place pictured above and moved to just an acre...the E-Gator buyer had rental commercial properties and would be using it both inside and out for maintenance chores. I sold the trailer I made with it...salvaged Gator bed and a Harbor Freight trailer frame.

    The guy who I bought our '07 "TS" Gator from had a very nice electric for sale. I thought about it hard, but didn't like the price of a new set of batteries! The "TS" has turned out to be a very good machine to replace our old 550 Mule:

    Grandson & I took the wife's Gator for a ride this past Sat. While riding in out neighbors field I ask the grandson if he would like to drive.. Do you think I can, I told him he could (will be 11 in about 3 wks) . Oh we had a field day,,, he found some snow and had to spin the tires. Of course Pappy had to tell him to stop and put the pedal to the metal..

    Have fun and be safe !!!
