I have to agree. I just have a small yard tractor with a loader but there's just something about doing even the most minor tractor work that feels so peaceful and satisfying.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

I agree Smallfoot!
When I'm on one of my tractors, I'm thinking about the job at hand, not the other million things I need to do. There's just something about clearing land, bush hogging fields and turning dirt that clears the mind. Running equipment has always been a second enjoyment of mine. And doing it with vintage equipment is even more fun.

I recently bought another tractor. Going through it now as the clutch was stuck and it leaked like there`s no tomorrow.
It`s a German built 1962 Irus 2 wheel tractor with a 27ci Hirth 2stroke diesel.

Got to agree with 5snopro440, tractor work is "very peaceful & satisfying.
Only thing that would have made it better would using my AC WD vintage tractor.
