Any gas I ever smelled , all be it propane gas, car exhaust gas, people exhaust gas etc... none smelled good enough for me to force into my food while cooking.

Sure gas is flammable and can produce heat to cook.... but so can a burning car tire. Somethings just weren't meant to be used for open flame cooking.

Maybe they shouldn't! I don't think I'd buy a grill from somebody noted for their tractors!

You need the tractor to drive away on when the grill catches on fire

I have a skid steer by them. It was a little more than a Bobcat, but it really put the Bobcat to shame when we compared them. Bobcat & John Deere came to our jobsite together so we could demo both machines at the same time. Deere won hands down! We are pretty good with our mainatence with our equipment and me and my brother are the only 2 operators, so that has a lot to do with it also.
