As a recent owner of a John Deere tractor I wanted to share with you all something I noticed reading the manuals for the tractor and the related implements.
I had no idea there were so many ways to kill one's self or risk serious bodily harm when operating a tractor or an implement. I had no idea that my John Deere tractor and its attached implements were essentially a death machine on Ag Tires.
I don't recall seeing any such warning pics in the VW Beatle owner's manual that I have.
Whoa! Owning and operating a tractor is not something to take lightly!
Of course, all joking aside I know a tractor is a serious piece of equipment and needs to be treated with respect and attention at all times to avoid injury.
When I am training a new apprentice at the bakery one of the big things I talk about is kitchen safety. I have a 60 qt mixer that is a bit of a monster. I emphasize that this machine has no feelings or conscience or morals. If you are not careful and get your arm in the way of the paddle or dough hook when it is running it will break it and keep on running like nothing has happened. I stress that it is important to treat the machines with respect and to be mindful at all times. One moment's carelessness can lead to a lifetime of regret.
But back to the John Deere graphics. Whoa! Those pics are serious!!!
Here are couple of my favorites:
