    It FINALLY arrived...

    ...two weeks ago.

    The bads:

    1) Unfortunately, due to timing, I was not available for the delivery. Work has me away for a few months. Guess I’ll get to explore the new equipment in the spring.

    As a result, I’ve created a monster...

    2). My wife absolutely LOVES this unit

    She has sent me clips of her taking the delivery and immediately throwing snow up our 1/4mi long driveway. Needless to say, I’m jealous.

    The good:

    She created a bank of snow in the middle of the driveway with the ATV/plow, then uses the blower on the tractor to throw that white BS into the woods.

    Quote: “This is easy and fun!!”

    And another quote: “We’re probably going to need a new garage door”

    Yep, she discovered the old ROP to garage door intriductions last night. Ah well...they were due for a change anyway

    Now for the “good”(?) good:

    1) She insists on a cab.
    2) She looks forward to me being home so when she gets the FEL attachment, I can use it to regrade the driveway to fix the melting water drainage issues.
    3) She’s also looking for ballast and a grading box.
    4) She has officially claimed the tractor as her own, and says I can use the ATV for snow removal next year.


    I’ve created a monster.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the keys are in hiding when I get home

    Unfortunately, my current locale has some of THE crappiest internets available on the planet. Alas, attempts to upload videos fail miserably.

    Perhaps when I get back home, I will set up a video montage. Who doesn’t enjoy a montage??

    Sounds like you did good. You need to keep her, monster and all. She'll fill you in on all the things NOT to do. Probably won't let you on the tractor either which means you can get another one and have a his and hers.

One day, I replied, "Thank God!! I'd never survive two of you!".

    I believe the same scenario would apply to multiple wives.
