My left arm aches due to the steering wheel
My whole family is in the grapes business. We grow, opportunity plus sell our grapes to Welch for jams, jellies plus juice. My sister makes her own wine plus sells it. I prefer to focus more on the grapes than the actual sales aspect. I am consistently either in the field trying, trimming or lifting down grapes back on the wire or I am in a tractor. The tractor labor is way more satisfying. I either service ruts, put in current posts, pull out old a singles. I run the picker for the grapes when the season is right. My a single tractor is the old faithful model I have used for years. It has worn seats, a small simple to move steering wheel plus is the perfect size to fit in the rows! However, the tractor doesn’t have a radio, heating or cooling. It gets boring plus picking is in the fall, so it gets cold too. My current tractor has all the bells plus whistles. I can plug in my PC plus listen to Spotify the whole time I pick. I can have the heating plan blasting plus be sitting in my comfy seat. It is a more pleasant experience. The picker is just a bit giant to navigate easily. I have to really focus so I don’t smash into posts or run into the actual grapes. The steering wheel is a bit oversized. When you opportunity you need a single arm running the steering wheel plus the other portion of your body is turned around to watch the picker. My left arm aches due to the steering wheel. I don’t think if quality heating is worth the pain I go through. I appreciate having songs too, but I prefer being able to wheel around the fields easily.
