Tractor Roll over

Postby Jackman » Sun Sep 22, 2019 2:59 pm

This happened locally 77 yrs old trapped under a older backhoe no roll bar , sad I bet he's hurt pretty badly :( Be careful on your equipment a split second can change your life greatly. https://midhudsonnews.com/2019/09/22/ba ... derly-man/ Image

I don't think a role bar would have helped any. To me it looks like his clothes got caught in the chains and he was pulled off the tractor. Either way I'm betting he was hurt pretty badly.

I hadn't noticed the clothes in the chains. Only he can tell what happened and that would be most informative. The backhoe unit appears to be covered by a tarp and the outriggers aren't extended, so it rolled.

looks like the wheels dug holes in the ground.-- hard to say what he did to end up like that.---with chains like that he wasn't very smart to say the least!--I have NEVER saw the need for chains of any kind on a backhoe tractor and I have run many of them over the years.

I read the article and it mentioned he was on sloping land. It appears red clay which accounts for the chains. That backhoe is heavy and if he made a turn, its top weight could upset the tractor. The seat is turned round as if to use the backhoe but that didn't happen until maybe he launched off the seat. The backhoe acted as a roll bar but the engine kept running awhile. I'm glad it cut off before fire. Anyway, we need to know these things as OP said.
