Safety is an important and often overlooked topic. Make safety a part of your everyday life and let others know how much you care by making their lives safer too. Let the next generation of tractor enthusiasts benefit from your experience, and maybe save a life or appendages.
I'm still in shock and hurting, but very thankful that I'm still alive.
Last Monday I rolled over on my Cub lowboy while discing. It was very easy to do. While discing up a hill I made my turn (left) around a small tree. The Cub slid into the tree on the left side, jamming the governor wide open and with the left rear tire against the tree. The tire started up the tree and tipped us over on the downhill side. Rolled over one and one quarter turns down hill (thank God not one and one half).
I am lucky to be able to write this post today. broken ribs, broken collar bone, separated shoulder but my neck survived somehow.
When I recall it, as i have every five minutes since, I get a little sick.

Mike I am so sorry to hear that! But I am very happy you were not hurt more seriously than you were. Best wishes for a speedy recovery. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Miss Janet sends kisses for all the boo-boos.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

Very glad your not hurt any worse than you were. It only takes a second, even when your careful as I know you were. Best wishes and Prayers for a speedy recovery.
I bought an old tractor all dusty and worn,
knew nothing about her just the year she was born
I washed her and greased her and painted her red
Now she lives happily right here in my shed.

Wow, Mike, that is scary and certainly glad you weren't hurt any worse. The broken ribs are hurt enough though, IMO. They don't seem to hurt unless you breath or move, been there, done that. The Cubs are oh so much fun, but on the other hand, a little dangerous as with any other powered equipment. I try and think ahead, as I am sure you did, and if something makes me a little uneasy, I won't do it on a Cub. Good luck with the healing process. Pete
Like the others, I'm very sorry to hear of your accident. My prayers now will be for the Lord to keep you from coughing until you're mended. Coughs and busted ribs don't go together well. It looks like your Cub made out better than you did.
