I floated that idea by my wonderful wife and she vetoed it. When she was little, she had a very close call on the 4430 (the same one) with her dad driving and her on the fender. She's a sweet girl, but has laid down the law - the kids will NOT be riding on open station tractors. I thought bolting an old car seat to the fender and to the ROPS would be adequate, but she will not be swayed. I'm sure she's right. I wouldn't be able to live with myself if "something" happened.
BUT a kid recently fell out of a cab tractor here. Dunno what tractor it was, but it surely couldn't have been a SG cab. I'm betting it was a newer tractor with the easily opened large side doors, not the front door on a Soundgard. Frankly, there's no way to keep a kid absolutely safe on a tractor, but there are reasonable precautions that can make an unsafe ride into a safer one.
I'm gonna go look at that 4630. the 1000 only PTO isn't an issue with plows, disks, even spreaders (1000 was an option on these and easily retrofitted - or just run half throttle with an adapter).
