    Re: Wrecker for a tractor? Hmmmmmm....

    Keep the wrecker and do exhibition pulls with it.

      Re: Wrecker for a tractor? Hmmmmmm....

      No one is making me choose anything, but I am not going to make my house look like a wrecking yard either.

      If I trade the wrecker on a tractor I can tow the tractor with my pop's truck and trailer or my dad in law's combo. I don't want to ditch Brutus, but having an old farm tractor to use for pulls during the summer (and there are a shocking number of them within a 100 mile radius of my house) would be neato and if I can score one that comes with a plow blade of removable bucket loader on it, I could be Mr. Plow again in my neighborhood over the winter.

      Just thinking out loud. I thought it was cool she brought it up!

        I personally, would rather have a tractor anyday. So much back-breaking work can be done with even a small tractor!

          She thinks your tractors sexy.


          I bet you would get more fun out of an old JD/Oliver/Ford/IH/Farmall than you ever will with the wrecker...the wrecker is cool but man, the fun potential with the family at he pulls, plus the boys could pull in a few years...memories...dude, I'd be on that like stink on shit.

            I think that is one of the reasons she was into it, because there were a bunch of youg kids pulling. Like this guy...

              Is that Pun intended??

              I say keep the Wrecker and buy her the Tractor........ This is what I did with the '71 GMC, it is "her truck"........

              And I ask what would be the bigger conversation piece, the Wrecker or a tractor.......Unless the tractor you want to get is something special, like the wrecker is I'd stick with the wrecker......

                You think your old Worthington would be towing your broken Caprice home today?

                Turn Brutus into a pulling truck. HA!!!

                  I learned to drive on an old Allis. Mom's got pics of me at age 6 driving it with a big ass hay trailer behind it...

                    Why not the best of both worlds? Keep the wrecker and get THIS tractor. From an email I got from a guy in Ontario.

                      Braub, you like tractors. That's Okay with me. More importantly, it seems your old lady is Okay with it too. Go ahead, start looking and get yourself a tractor. If you think about it, certainly you can see that you deserve a nice tractor, and like you said, pullin' with it could be an exciting family activity.

                        Peewee, that's not a tractor. Nope, no sir, no how. I never considered a Massey a tractor unless you liked pullin' 'em out of the field in two pieces on the end of a chain.

                          Well, that's the best I could do from the collection that I have. I tried. I used to work with a guy who ran a landscaping business on the side. So I ran his job and mine too while he was on the phone at work the whole shift talking to landscaping customers. And he thought Massey was the only tractor-thing in the world. Best ever. That's all the evidence that I have.

                          And the one in the photo has a 1200 c.c. motorcycle engine in it. Don't know what the guy in Ontario does with it. Too little to pull with, too fast to mow the lawn with....dunno. Another Canadian thing, I guess. I'd be stir crazy, too, if I was stuck inside the house from the snow 8 months out of the year.

                            I can see why she likes the tractor for the boys to drive. I'm guessing she thinks the slow moving machines are safer than fast cars.

                              I'm the safety guy. Little kids on a big tractor scare he SHIT of of me. Not physical carnage, but death to THEM. That photo of that kid on the big tractor...well, I'm sure all is well, but that scares me to see that. Kids and big machinery just don't go together....okay never mind, resume thread.

                                I worked for a farmer when I was 12-13 walking beans and detasseling corn. I was driving a similar tractor a week after he met me. Not much trouble I could get into doing a maximum 10 mph in a field.

                                  Scott, that's just too fast for field work. I think 7mph is a more appropriate max speed.

                                        Peewee - Just don't ever do something dumb like get off a tractor while its still moving. That'll tend to end slapstick.

                                          Brian, I seem to remember that tractor gave you frostbite in a rather sensitive location... maybe you wanna stick to stuff that has a heater.
