    So yesturday I showed my wife how to use the snowblower it is self propelled and huge lol. She kept forgetting to stop the drive and not the auger so she kept getting dragged of into the sunset by it :lol: She also thought that 5 was the only speed setting even though I showed her all 1-2-3-4-5-R1-R2 of them. She did eventually get it and I am proud of her for not giving up even though she is scared of it now and says I better be really sick before she uses it again :lol: Looks like I gotta get sick more often( to bad I like using it) %-P

    good idea to teach her these things
    I had a quad bypass 3 years ago in january
    naturallly we had alot of snow and ice that year
    my wife had to use the 4wd kubota to keep our 400 +foot driveway clear on a rather large hill
    ice underneath sliding around
    a very steep learning curve
    she was successful

    moral of the story

    plan ahead, you never know what might happen

    My wife has used all of the machines once or twice and could probably run them all with a quick refresher. This is when I brought home a tractor on her birthday.

    I was away on business a few years back and my wife journeyed out to do the driveway. My Toro Power Max 1028 is a fairly large machine and she got pulled around. One thing she did do is took a chunk out of the siding on the garage wall as she went right into it. She didn't tell me but I saw it a few days after I got back. I told her if she ever has to do it again, go along with the garage wall, not towards it! She hasn't touched the snowblower since :)

    What's your point? %-P I'd be in seventh heaven if some one at my house bought a tractor on my birthday. Hell, I'd look like B does :p

    Pete, that is good to show her. Just one year ago I went into the hospital but before I went in I had this awful feeling that there would be snow to plow while I was in there. So, I took my wife in back and although there was only a little bit of snow, I showed her what to do. Sure enough, you probably remember the big snow we had on Feb. 2. That was the day I was to come home. Not much was moving and even the hospital had big problems getting nurses in to work. Wife plowed the driveway and did a great job. Sometimes these things work out rather nicely.
