The prime minister was back in his happy place, perched atop a tractor in northeast Victoria.
There was only one problem.
"No horn," Scott Morrison said.
Mr Morrison flew into the seat of Indi on Wednesday for the second time in a week.
Retiring independent Cathy McGowan holds the electorate by 5.5 per cent but Mr Morrison is trying to bring it back into the coalition fold.
"There's a lot of moving pieces up here," he said from the driver's seat.
"There's a lot of moving parts."
The prime minister was touring a Wangaratta family business that makes parts for heavy machinery.
Owner Adam Fendyk is now looking to expand.
"You've got to have a go," he said, inadvertently borrowing one of the prime minister's favourite lines.
"It's one of the things about our family; we won't die wondering, we'll ask some questions of ourselves."
Mr Morrison was clearly impressed.
"I'm a bit the same," he said.
The prime minister then ducked up the road to help a young couple cut the ribbon on their brand new home.
"This is what I do for all first home buyers now," he joked.
Mr Morrison is confident of winning Indi back at the federal election on Saturday.
"I'm confident because of Steve Martin's great credentials," he said of the local Liberal candidate.
"I'm confident because I believe people here in Indi so want to see a government member here in Indi that can be part of the plans that we continue to roll out."
North East Victoria hasn't seen a federal election without Sophie Mirabella or Cathy McGowan for two decades.
Independent Helen Haines is running against the Liberals in what is expected to boil down to a two-horse race.
Dr Haines has said she will expect a call from the prime minister on Sunday morning should she claim victory.
Mr Morrison is not so keen on the idea.
"On Sunday morning I'm looking to give Steve Martin a call," he said.
The prime minister warned at length about the potential perils of voting for independent.
"You never know what you're going to get," he said.
