This safety test is a great thing. It made me think about situations that can be taken for granted.

I read about an elderly man who had owned his cub for years. He was turning around on a small road in the woods on his property, he backed up a hill intending to turn right downhill. The cub being offset to the left turned over and rolled on him, sadly he did not survive.
Be careful

I have known one friend who broke his pelvis when he drove a Farmall up a hill at a bad angle. He was about 14 or so at the time. He recovered. Also knew a farmer who I worked for who lost his wife when she rolled a Farmall M over and she did not survive. Also the farmer up the road lost his daughter when she was helping repair the barn roof. I could go on and on. Farming can be dangerous.
