    What did you name your SCUT tractor?

    After owning my 1025r I decided it needed a name so I now call it Bucky.

    What do you call your SCUT (when it is working and not when it has let you down ) ?

    So why "Bucky"? Like to hear the story......

    I call it "the tractor" and on GTT, "the 1025r".......never got into naming inanimate objects. But I know a lot of people do name them.....Let's see, Wenton Brown calls his tractor "Betsy" and I see some graduation pictures this past week where a new GTT member called it "Little Johnny" or "Little John".

    Mrs. Bear calls it "your tractor" and she won't drive it.......I once got her to drive it about 10 ft straight on the driveway and she said "too many levers and pedals and thingies" and that was that...............just as well.

    My neighbor's younger kids said the 1025r was too small to be called a Deere so they started calling it Bambi

    Bambi doesn't work for me because I like to hunt so I decided, with the neighbor's kids approval, to call it Bucky

    My partner drove Bucky a couple of times when I was picking branches in the yard . . . but after she hit a tree with the loader bucket, that was it!

    iI call my tractor SAM. as in Uncle Sam. No matter how much money I spend on it, it always wants something more. I wouldn’t be surprised for it to somehow tell me “BUT ITS FOR THE CHILDREN” to get the next thing it absolutely has to have.

    My wife calls it Helga. “Are you going to play with Helga?”

    And if I should look covetously at another tractor, I get “what would Helga think?”.

    LGM. Little green machine!

    I originally named it Little green beast or LGB. I like that better but my gay friends started messing me with and asking if they can borrow my little gay tractor so i changed it to LGM (LGB= lesbian, gays, & bisexual)

    I still call it Little Green Beast when i say all the words


    The back story on the name
    I borrowed my buddies 4 series orange tractor. To work around the house. I needed it wayyyyy longer than he could let me borrow it so I went and bought my own 1025 TLB. It became Little Green Beast after just hours of us using it. It did everything the 4 Series did just slower. I was amazed.

    I name all my machines. I can't swear at, or praise, them effectively without giving them identity. And they do seem to have a personality to go with it.

    My 2032R (I know, MCUT) is George. I was running low on meaningful names and George has been my catch-all name for when I forget. When I explain how bad my memory for names is and why I decided on George as a default, many people think it is funny and don't mind. I have "Georged" quite a few with good results. Oddly, most are young ladies. One was a nervous bride just before the ceremony at my wife's church where I was helping in the kitchen. It helped ease her tension, and when it was over I hollered "congratulations George" and she hollered "Thanks" back. Her new husband gave her a funny look. I didn't know either of them.

    I thought I was done naming as I was done getting machines when I got a plate compactor yesterday. Haven't thought up a name yet. Perhaps Thumper, as in the rabbit?

    Some names are descriptive such as Zip for the log splitter and Chip for the chipper. Some have a relationship such as Jenny and Jack for my two yard mules (riding mowers without a deck), some are take-offs on their brand name such as Airy for the Ariens snowblower. Some have no rhyme or reason. None are named for people I know.

    Dobbin (my truck work horse) whinnys and Midnite (wife's car) now barks and bays like the hounds. We have a lot of fun with that.

    I know, I'm a little crazy but it does keep life interesting. Being normal is so boring.

    Um... "Dustpan" is probably the best one. Spend a lot of time running stuff to a burn pile with the loader bucket attached. Forks also works well, but "Forks" is kind of a dumb name.
