I've never done it, but it could be one of the best blinds ever. Expensive, but effective.

Yeah, expensive... I wonder what the fine will be since I'm sure that green jeans would call it a vehicle.. But since you're stealing all of those birds from the Atlantic flyway, you'll get what you deserve.

I know you were joking, but for all the adam's out there Red did say park it. As long as it's not moving it would be ok. Now brushing it could be another story.

We were ripping the field next to the picture above. They would part to let the tractor drive through.

Green, two brands of red, and three brands of yellow. I'm down for whatever. How do you like the gator?

It's not as loud as I would like right now. As loud as it may be at times I do miss them when they're gone.

It is, without a doubt, my favorite side by side. Smoothest running, smoothest ride, and best built out of all of them I've had or used. My only complaint is the seat is narrow and only made for two people.

I guess when you think about how far they've come from the old green and yellow gators with turf tires to what they make now, it's quite a change. I didn't mean it as I thought they weren't good.

Oh yea, I remember going with dad to look at them 10 years ago and they were junk. They've came a LOOONG way since then. I did opt for green and yellow though...

The only good green tractor is a Deutz
Buy it, use it, break it, fix it,
Trash it, change it, mail - upgrade it,
Charge it, point it, zoom it, press it,
Snap it, work it, quick - erase it,
Write it, cut it, paste it, save it,
Load it, check it, quick - rewrite it,
Plug it, play it, burn it

I learned to drive a clutch on an old Deutz-Alice. Dad restored it to the original green.
