Safety is a serious matter when it comes to operating tractors and
other farm equipment. Please take a moment of your time to read the
following safety bulletins.
Types of Tractor Injury-Incidents - There are several types of tractor mishaps that result in injury. Common mishaps are:
by-pass starting, front-end loader incidents, rearward tractor rollovers, sideways tractor rollovers, falls from tractors, tractor runovers, caught-between crushing, and PTO stub shaft entanglements. All these are discussed in this article.
Straight Facts About PTO Shafts and Sheilds - Power Take Off (PTO) shafts are used to transmit power from a tractor or other source of power to an implement. Two speeds are commonly used with PTO shafts, 540 and 1000 rpm. RPM means revolutions per minute, the number of complete turns of the shaft in 60 seconds. This article discusses PTO entanglements and how to use your PTO safely.
Safe Use of Tow Ropes, Cables and Chains - Stuck! The tractor won't go forward or backward, and you need help! Or, that stump or rock has got to be moved. While backing the tractor into position for pulling, do you ever wonder, "Is that weld repair on the hook good? What about the chain repair we made with a bolt? What's gonna break first, the chain or the hook?" Think about these questions when selecting a tow rope, chain, or cable for pulling something.
