I take mine for a spin around my property all the time. I even take her to the neighbors for a visit. Every now and then I'll go the the middle of my property on her, turn off the engine, and enjoy the sounds of the woods.
Hey guys I was wondering if you guys take your tractors on joy rides what I mean Is just drive it just for fun! My dad for some reason gets super annoyed when I drive my 7100 he says I drive it like a car and that it’s not made for that lol
Funny you should mention that.. I have a B6100 i love and find very fun, but its throttle pedal does not seem useful to me because it will only rev the tractor up, but not let it rev back down to the previous setting. I didn't figure i cared so i never looked at that. Well, i picked up a 7100 to resell and the pedal works more like you expect or more like a car pedal, where your dash lever sets minimum throttle and the pedal lets you rev above that and when you let off it returns to the lever's setting.
I IMMEDIATELY started driving it more like a car. Times when i would be happy to putter along at mid throttle in the 6100 im 'flooring it' in the 7100 and 'driving aggressively'.
ALL because of the difference between those two pedals.. so now im going to make my 6100 work like that too.
While contemplating whether or not to get a diesel transfer tank, I decided that the gas station down the road was close enough to drive to. When I need fuel, I just drive the L2501 to the station. And yes, I have driven it through the McDonald's drive through a time or two to pick up breakfast.
