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.

Got home from the fest safe and sound and on sunday decided to cut some grass. The fan belt broke half way through the cutting so I was close to the house. I pulled it into the yard and shut it down. All my tractors have non presure radiator caps. I wanted to see how much coolant was still in the radiator.
Well I forgot that I had replaced the cap on this perticular tractor. I removed the cap and antifreeze shot out. I was wearing a carhart jacket and it went right up my sleve.

That hurts! Been there done that, once.

Pete, better to take it on the arm than in the face. Not much worse than the pain from a burn--heal fast!

looks like it hurts. Sorry to hear that.
Have A Nice Day!
I'm always grateful when a person admits having done something that we all may have done/might do, so that someone might avoid a similar fate!! A good reminder. Sorry about your arm, but thanks for the post!
Sorry to hear that. I also did that....once. I still put a rag over the cap even when I know it's not hot. Grump

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.
Some days it's not worth chewing through the restraints
