Important Safety Tips for Driving a Tractor
The National Agricultural Tractor Safety Initiative reports that approximately 130 people die each year in tractor accidents, with rollovers being the most common cause. So before you hop aboard a tractor to dig into your project, you'll want to make sure that you're taking the proper safety precautions. At Highland Rent All, we offer tractor rental in the greater Albuquerque area and are happy to discuss tractor safety with you before you rent from us. Here's a look at some helpful safety tips for operating a tractor.
Be Extra Careful on Slopes
It's safest to operate a tractor on level terrain. However, in some cases, you may need to operate in a sloped area. In such a situation, you should drive up and down the slope instead of across it. And whether you're on a slope or flat land, it's important to maintain your patience and not be in a rush to get the job done.
Rollover Protection System
It's safest to only use tractors that have rollover protections systems (ROPS). While four-post and two-post ROPS offer increased safety, the greatest protection is provided by an enclosed cab.
Wear Your Seatbelt
If your tractor does rollover, it's very important that you stay within the protection zone. When you're wearing your seatbelt, you'll have a safeguard against being tossed out of the protective zone and into an area where you could be crushed by the tractor's massive weight.
For optimal safety, it's best if you don't use any implements that don't have a guard.
Not for KidsThe idea of giving your child a tractor ride might seem like wholesome fun. However, this can potentially put you both in danger because there should only be one person in the tractor seat and the driver needs to remain fully focused on safe operation.
