Who here has people naming their machines???

Since I started working on these snow blowers, I tell my girlfriend what I am working on such as the Toro 521, Snapper, Sno Tek and such and she just tells me there my mistresses LOL Then she tells me I need to start naming them LOL Well she has started to name every machine I mention now, She named my Sno-Tek Smokey, The Toro 421 I sold was Stan, Her blower I put together is Speedy since I put a Speedy Gonzales sticker on it (she is 5' nothing and moves really fast so I call her Speedy) So do your machines get named LOL

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Dauntae,

I have never felt the need to name any of my machines, unless you want to count one of the very few times one of them may have lost a part or otherwise broke down right in the middle of a blizzard. And according to the rules set forth here by the moderators, those are not names that I can mention here.

The 30" MTD is the Big One and 27" Craftsman the Small One. Works for me.

Mine get called all sorts of names, (none good) when they fail me at the most inconvenient times. Snowblower = An item that never fails when your not using it.
