New to 1023e SCUT and was moving some sand using my loader. I bought 5 bags of sand 50lbs. each and unloaded from my truck into my bucket. Then I proceeded down a small grade with my loaded approx. 4ft off the ground. The ground also had a downward slope to the left of tractor. As I was turning right going slowly downhill the rear right tire started to lift off the ground! I put the brakes on slowly noticing what was happening. I immediately
moved my weight to the right rear and tractor settled back down to the ground but it shut off because of no weight on seat! Yes I did a really stupid thing, I didn"t wear my seat belt and didn't have my rops up!!! Very Stupid!!!! Every time I tried to start tractor It wouln't because of no weight on seat. So I had to try to get enough weight on seat so it would crank and start but when I did the tractor would start to tip. Then I thought to lower loader to lower the center of gravity of the weight. That worked and I was able to start tractor and get myself out of trouble.[/B] I thought this was just a quick little job and didn't realize that 250 lbs. in loader would do that! I didn't have my weights on for ballast because I thought it was a light load. I hate even telling this story of my stupidity and pride but feel if someone else reads this maybe they will learn from my experience!!! I hope so, and am so glad the big guy up above was watching over me!!! I will never use loader without my seat belt on or without the ROPS up!!! I'm Done!!!!!
