    Rolled on it's side

    So as not to take away from the other threads I thought I'd start a new one. It happened to me tonight as I was wrapping things up for the day. I painted most of the day and only have 2 more areas to paint but have to let it dry till morning so I quit...just not soon enough. Seeing as I had to take cat food and water to the barn I thought I'd take a load of 2x8's as I went and dispose of them. Not thinking I didn't have any weight on the back I did the rookie mistake going down hill. I raised the FEL up so I wouldn't drop any boards. Yep, the back end came up off the ground and then pivoted to the left. The FEL was to far up to bring it back down fast enough to rescue the tractor...so I bailed and the tractor helped by giving me a push. All I was thinking was shut the tractor off as I rolled down the hill! Even though I didn't see it I knew it was on it's side or worse, on it's top. Knowing how hard it was for me to stop myself I didn't know how the tractor would fair. You ever see a 64 year old man run uphill...fast? Hit the ground, sliding end over end, going down another hill, stop, back up the hill, shut the tractor off...5 seconds. Longest 5 seconds I've endured in a while. Tractor started to smoke, then knock, then I shut it off. I've got oil in both air filters and coming out of the exhaust. It knocked probably about 2 or 3 seconds. From the time it laid down till I got it back on 3 good tires and 1 flat tire...about 10 minutes. Wife came out to see and offer her explanations. She called our son who was just down the road. I put the tractor in neutral and had our son back my truck up so I could guide the tractor the rest of the way down the hill which wasn't far to the flat spot. Tomorrow I'll feel how bad my body is and check to see just how bad the tractor is. I think I did better then the tractor. I've got 3 scrapes...left knee, inside left ankle, back of right calf. All from dirt and rocks. I'll let the pics show how bad the tractor faired. Till I check things tomorrow I won't know. I did call Jason to see what I should do first. So I have to say "Thank You Jason"! This is kind of long so I'll post the pics in the next post.

    Crap dude. Glad to hear you weren't hurt worse than a couple of scrapes and bruises. These stories skeer the beejeebers out of me every time I see one.

    Hopefully the tractor isn't to bad off.

    Levi, I'm glad to hear that you were able to walk away from this incident. While the tractor is important, make sure you take the time to listen to your body and take care of yourself first.

    This pic of the brick is to let everyone know if I would have had my seat belt on is where I would had hit and then slid after hitting. So no safety police please. It's always a 50/50 thing and we all take our chances our own way. This time it was in my favor. A wake up call. Hitting that would not have been a good thing. And I did thank God too. One of the first thing I did. He has saved me from myself many times.

    That's incredible Levi, really glad you made it out without more serious injuries. Tractors can be replaced, you...not so much. And we like having you around!

    Hopefully the tractor won't be too bad.
