I would like to take a poll on how many members use this site as well as the other Off road mower site : ATLMA

I attempted to become a member of thiers, but they have ridiculous rules and are "braggy" if you know what i mean..

But, I would imagine some members here are members there...or are they rivals? was this site started because they are dicks?

Clue me in...school me oh wizards of the web... study

That forum was abandoned by the members for all the horrid rules. Just look, the last post made was MONTHS ago.

Rolling Eyes ...Chris is a DICK. He is like a five year old ( This is MY sand box and YOU WILL PLAY MY WAY!) Will not carry on an adult conversation if you dont see it his way you are a stupid " back-yard-basher (BYB)". He doesn't want us back-yard-bashers playing in his sand box! and has stated he wold rather see the web site go down then then let us back-yard-bashers play in his sand box! IMO

" Backyard bashers are NOT welcome here. this is the wrong place for you!"

I considered joining there years ago - till i saw how the moderator treated people ( his way or highway) - the fact about that is he's also in cahoots with heymow - the racing tractor site, so he probably has to stay strict to keep on their good side.

I understand not all people have a ton of cash to build proper machines, heck i dont - why most my tractors have been WIPs or taken apart/rebuilt better. Im not saying dont have fun, just be careful.

Id say for safety's sake at least have decent brakes and wear a helmit - even on a stock tractor . Ive run some stockers thru the swamp behind the folks house and flipped over/crashed tons of times , and wasnt wearing a helmit - but came darn close to being hurt bad enough more then a few times.

Y just dont bounce back as easy when y get older - ive had my share of ER visits over the years - worst one was cutting my right middle finger down to the tendon working on my plain stock mower - 7 stitches to close it up, done it like 4 years ago and still bothers me sometimes , specially in cold weather.

All it takes is for that 'one' bad crash to ruin things.

I personally am against being so strick that it comes off as rude..

I am much more for "Guidelines", Dont tell me what to do, but give me guidance..let me make my own choice to do the right thing.. Suspect

I think we as a community have a responsibility to just look out for each other and simply suggest alternatives when we see unsafe things..

I hate to hear of accidents, sorry about your knuckle(s)
