Wouldn't you need a mini driver as well?
Self-sufficient in rasberries and bindweed. Slug pellets can be handy.

Hubby doesn't know a lot about them Frankie, but he said its probably got a Kohler engine.  12hp possibly.

Howard's started to make these mini tractors just before they went out of business in 1986, and they didn't make too many of them.

I used to work in a helium gas factory, but I walked out, no one talks to me like that.
