We've been having fun with our new toy. It mows well and if we need any front or back implaments we have the option! We errected a portable garage to put the tractor and our expanding arsenal of equipment.
Steve purchased it at Harbor Freight a local tool place. We were able to get it up in a couple hours though we started late and it was very dark by the time we were done. It felt like camping!
The only issue was about a week later we had a lot of wind and discovered that the anchors aren't that great. The sign on the inside of this little shed states to remove the tarp everytime there is heavy rain or wind. Um...yeah that would be a pain in the ass.
My husband was luckily home as the whole shed lifted up and began rolling towards the electric fencing that would have been destroyed and released our ponies. So glad nothing bad happened but feel bad that I was at work while he struggled with the thing. He disassembled it while fighting 30-40 mile an hour gusts!
So our tractor, aka Kevin (named after the minion) is in the garage and his car, who is often at the garage at the airport, will be outside for a bit. We are currently pricing those metal carports that are guaranteed and secured better. We'll probably get one with one full side as it will be up against our tool shed. Steve has eventual plans for putting a large garage behind the barn that will store the tractor, our tool shed and then beer brewing stuff for his hobby (of course I will store soap making and bee stuff there too I'm sure!) But that is many years in the future.
And just for some laughs here's this:
