Most of my lady readers will likely skip these many pictures of men loading and unloading a tractor. I don't blame any of you!
Just down the hill from us, a farmer had sort of a freak thing happen: His tractor evidently wasn't in gear, and it rolled down the drive, across the road, and turned over. It wasn't his main tractor, and it was insured.
It just happens to be the same make and model that Cliff's brother, Phil, just bought recently. While mowing, Phil's tractor broke a spindle (I think that's the thing that holds the front wheel on???). Parts from a dealer are terrible expensvie, and when Cliff told him about this wrecked tractor, he contacted the farmer who owned it. Sure enough, as soon as the insurance settled with him, he'd be happy to sell it.
It makes me a nervous wreck seeing Cliff do something like this. I watch until my nerves give out, then I turn my back and pray silently.
All's well that ends well, and now if Phil's 190XT has other problems, it's very likely he'll have what he needs on this "parts tractor" for which he paid $500.
