 Wifey needs tractor lessons need front grille

Was wondering if anyone out there in Cub land can tell where I might purchase a front grille, new or used for my 7272. Several local dealers in my area want between,$165.00-$185.00 dollars for a new grille, geesh. Wifey decided to take a ride on my new/used tractor and ran into a tree. Can't a guy get a break? I just picked up my tractor this weekend, Laughing out loud. What are ya going to do? I love her to death, but damit, stay off my tractor, Laughing out loud.

Thanks,
Larry

I can definitly understand your feelings as I sit here typing with the key board on my lap instead of on the slider tray that used to be attached to the bottom of the desk! Don't know what she does when she's on the computer, it's not like we have a video cam or anything for her to make movies but this is the second time! Fool on me!

Larry, while I can't really help with a Cub grille I certainly can empathize with your wife's mowing skills.

Years ago when we first moved to our present home my wife said she wanted to help with the yard work since she was home all day. I bought her a nice riding mower, A Kubota with HST, 4WD & 4WS, she even test drove it before I bought it to make sure she felt comfortable.

So far so good, right?

I got home some time later that season and opened the garage to park the car and saw the same as you, the grille smashed in on the mower. There was a big vertical depression right smack in the center of the grille, almost back to the sheet metal of the hood.

When I asked my wife what happened she merely replied "I was trying to get close to that big birch tree." as she pointed out the kitchen window.

I think she succeeded too.

She claimed she was trying to keep the lines in the grass nice & neat so she was heading straight for the tree, then planned on swerving at the last moment. She was a little late in swerving.

Oh well, it sure keeps life interesting don't it now?

Best of luck.

My lovely wife decided to mow the lawn for me a couple years ago to save me some time on a weekend.

Took me the better part of four hours to rebuild the 50 feet of fence that was in the way of her mowing pattern.

No damage to the tractor.

Don't be too harsh on the Mrs! Payback is hell, if you tag a few things yourself as I have done. Things happen on occasion when you drive in close quarters as much and as long as I have.

I am really glad my wife does not keep track of how many of her special order dishes I have chipped or broken.

Or how many pieces of clothing she only got to wear once because I washed them in the wrong load and turned everything pink.

It's been more than $180 bucks worth, that is for sure.

I've only got one of those 'oopsey' type things to nmy credit so far.

While I was under 'house arrest' after my heart attack my good wife brought me a present one day, my faithfull side-kick Deputy Dog, who is the grandson of one of my prior dogs. A very sweet gesture indeed.

But did she really think I wasn't going to play or rough-house with the dog indoors?

BTW, for future reference, when a tennis ball hits an antique Hummell figurine it will fall over, and when said figurine hits the marble floor, there really isn't enough crazy glue in the world to put it back together again.

To this day I get a dirty look if I so much as pick up a tennis ball in the house.

Best of luck.

My wife actually prefers the big tractor (4310) over the lawn tractor (325). But she stays clear of objects out of paranoia. So I get to go back and do the finish work. Beats having to fix a busted grill.

She also is a bit tight about me using stuff in the house or (in her words) me contemplating doing something stupid.

What I need to do is get some clay pigeons and be shooting those off the deck when she comes home. That will impress her about as much as shooting the pumpkin with the .50 cal from the deck.

I can't believe I forgot about the incident where I was shooting at a gopher from the bathroom window. She wasn't impressed.
