    Crash Near My Home

    Hope it turns out OK. Apparently the car driver could not see the bright green tractor. He must have been on the side checking something, the owner was under the tractor for a bit.

    Meanwhile is a 30' Grady White.

    I know some people have to travel down the road on their tractor but I would find a way to avoid it at all costs. Half the time I don't feel safe even in my F350.

    Be careful out there

    My 584 probably out-weighs a F350 truck,,



    Last year, in another part of Virginia, a guy with an almost identical 2WD version of my tractor was hit by a large truck, on a highway,,

    The impact was so severe, the tractor was broke in half near the clutch,,,

    Since reading that article, I get a two vehicle escort if a tractor has to go on a road,,,
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I think a lot of time people don't realize how slow tractors are moving compared to trucks and cars on the highway.

    If they are not paying attention, they're on your butt before they realize it.

    Hope the guy on the tractor makes out OK with nothing severe, under a tractor is not a good place to be.

    I wouldn't run anything smaller than the 4510 on the road, especially here in Indiana with all the hills. if you get hit you want as much weight as possible. I usually never have issues though- i think people generally recognize that my area is a farming area so equipment is expected. Maybe i'm lucky. Obviously being stupid and doing things like driving on the highway will increase the chances of being killed.

    I run a 6330 every now and then. I think that getting hit in that would probably end worse for the car. A 5000 pound sedan vs. a 12,000 pound tractor is no contest. Plus the tractor has the height advantage. . The situation would be reversed for the 4510 though- 5000 pound car vs. 3000 pound tractor is also no contest.

    About two months ago a farmer was killed just north of here. I can’t remember what model but it was an 11,000 pound tractor. A box truck hit him and broke the rear axle.

    thats another story all together. A tractor is sure to lose that fight.

    My dad has been hit twice during farming season. Once while only driving his Intentional 5488, and once while pulling his white 16 row planter. Both HUGE machines. Both times the car was totaled and my dad walked away unscratched. Also during the day with flashers on and driving along the side of the road.

    I travel the road with my 2025 probably more than any others I've heard mention on this forum. One mile up to the horse barn and pretty much most of our doings, it's a scary world out there.

    Looking at the picture and reading the text, it appears to me that the driver hit the trailer being towed by the tractor, that pushed the tractor causing it to jack-knife and over turn.

    The trailer does have a SMV sign, but I wonder if the trailer had any working lights hooked up to the tractor. Not trying to excuse the car driver.
