    How interesting..but I would think that using a tractor for errands would be very costly!! Most of the newer ones are even fuel gobblers. I do understand their reasoning..most wouldn’t drive very far with a tractor!! It almost seems humorous!

    Baptist. I guess its better than walking, but not much warmer.
