Tractor Turn Over

This looks like an overseas event, however the results are the same.
Too much speed, too many people, poor judgement.

You hit it right on the head! Too many people on the tractor plus horseplay and inexperience. They are lucky they walked away.

That was one stupid, stupid stunt. As they say, you can't fix stupid. :x

Bad enough people who have lots of experience get complacent and bad stuff happens. Like yesterday up in Geary by Fredericton NB, a 61 (?) year old man didn't walk away from a tractor accident. Tractor turned over on the side of a hill/ditch kind of (drainage), owner was crushed. DOA at hospital.

Makes you wanna stop and think about what you are doing, cause once you is under the tractor, you can't do it over again... :( :cry: THose guys were lucky they could walk away.. the guy up in Geary, well I feel for his family, as they now have to deal with the results of an accident. (+) to his family.....

I can't believe the adults that stood there and watched. If those had been my kids they would have been pretty hurt. Of course that would have been after I finished with them.

i have learned that too many people on a four wheeler can be dangerous, i would never have more than me on the operators "platform" at once with a tractor... it's amazing that the adults just stood right there and didn't really offer any help or anything? ifn i was there (even being a kid) they probably woulda gots an earful...
