I think you nailed it here Spook.

How can we teach them and get them interested if they're never allowed on one.

On the other hand, we're supposed to be the ones that know the dangers.

There's always danger, they're machines without feelings, but limiting those

dangers to something reasonable is what we need to be doing.

My grandkids ride with me on some tractors, not the ones with loaders or
no safe place to ride or any tractor doing real work,

My nieces and nephews are old enough to drive them around the drive
way themselves now.
They all know they can't ride if a PTO is running, it's just a "law" around here.

I feel for that family and can only imagine the beating that poor man is giving

himself. Hind sight being what it is.

I do think it falls under a category that Americans are more and more lacking...COMMON SENSE.

You should know your kid and if he/she knows how to hang on, how old they are, their maturity level, and the proper amount of danger to put them in according to the previous conditions.

I was apparently very mature and responsible kid. Drove solo my first vehicle (64 f250) while being pulled by my dad, who was driving the JD620 pulling a drag, with the 64f250 chained behind. He said just steer it, keep the chain fairly tight and remember the brake. We went two miles and made it just fine. I was 4years old.

And you could see out the windshield and use the brakes on a '64? I need bigger boots! I would believe 8 or 9, but I know, the older we are the bigger our stories! :wink:

I was 4, I know this because at 5 we was living at the place we transported this rig from. I did have to stretch a bit for the brake though. By 8 I was working fields with a Massey Harris 44 and a Kewanee 12ft disk or 12 JD drag. I still have the JD620, MH44 and the disk.
