    She Doesn’t Think My Tractor Is Sexy!!!

    Today I took delivery of my new X758 with 54” deck and 3PH! Sent wife a video of the machine with the diesel engine purring in our driveway. No response from her ...until I prompted her with another text asking if she saw the video to which she replied “it sounds noisey”!

    We had to leave quickly when she got home from work tonight to go meet friends for dinner. After getting home an hour ago I had to ask her to come take a look at it before she went to bed. Unbelievable.

    Anybody else out there who’s wife couldn’t care less about their “green machine” ...especially after it had just been delivered?

    This could be a good thing!
    In the future you could secretly trade in for a bigger machine and if she gets a look at that and wonders what you did you can claim it's the same machine you have had all along...

    Send the tractor to the dealer at the same time your lawn needs mowing, give her the push mower. She will begin to appreciate the tractor even more. Tough love......

    If she isn't complaining about the cost or trying to steal your seat time, I'd say you have it made. You have a useful new to. .. er tool to use and are now free to upgrade as necessary as long as she doesn't see the delivery truck.

    Heck some of the guys on here can't get any seat time because the missus claims it's her tractor.

    My wife has no interest in the tractors we have. She's driven them twice. She asks how many we have and I just say I don't know. I stopped counting them so I don't know. I could buy 3 more and she wouldn't know the difference.

    You are blessed that she has no interest.

    I bought her a gator and she read the manual and drives all over with it. Just be careful.
