They took the video and pictures down from their website out of respect for the family. It looked like a Case 730 or 830 narrow front end(earlier model with rounded fenders), pulling a NH rake. The tractor rolled and pinned him underneath so that he couldn't get away. The diesel caught the tractor on fire and the windrows and he burned to death with his family right there.
It's a stark reminder to slow down and be careful. I, myself was raking hay in high gear yesterday to beat the rain, so I could imagine he was doing the exact same thing.

When I got my first job, the farmer taught me how to run his Allis tractors.

He was adament that I use the wide front tractor on the drag, not the narrow front, and then that I be careful not to turn too short.

30 years later I attended his funeral when the rear tire on that wide front WD45 caught the chain and pulled that drag up over the tractor on him.

Sometimes it's carelessness, sometimes stupidity, sometimes I just think bad things happen to good people.

A very sad day for any family!

We all do things from time to time, we know is wrong when we are pushed for time!

Please try hard to take the time to work and play safe!

Today's Featured Article - A City Guy's First Tractor - by Fred Hambrecht. After living in apartments in Atlanta for more years than I care to remember, the wife and I decided to move to the country. Humming "Green Acres is the place for me..." we purchased a 29 acre tract about 60 miles south of Atlanta. Next came the house, I could talk about that ordeal for another two weeks... But, I want to talk about my tractor! We didn't even own a lawnmower, and all of a sudden we had enough grass to feed all the starving children of the bovine world. Naturally, I talked ...
