    ROPS & Seatbelts do work

    Moving gravel today for new basement. Rear tire got into a rut while turning. If it was closer to edge it would have been a 9' drop onto rebar. Click image for larger version.

    Are you ok? The tractor is repairable, even replaceable if needed. (That doesn't seem to the case here.) But just wanted to make sure you made it out ok.


    Thanks for sharing this with everyone. It's important to share real-life experiences that actually relate to other operators/owners to bring it to reality.

    I too hope you are OK.

    I am a firm believer in ROPS and seat belts, although I know not everyone is.

    Thanks for posting.

    Don't know what took place and wasn't there , just a few thoughts .
    Seeing the fel high on the photos if that helped. Maybe the rear 3pt was high with weight on the rear ,that could have helped.

    As I stated before main thing he is safe, Thank goodness for seatbelt and ROPS.

    There was a little more detail in his TBN thread (along with way more people telling him this was all his fault and he would have been better off without the ROPS and seatbelt!). He dropped a rear tire into a soft spot, possible while turning slowly. His rear ballast consisted of a big rock held in that scoop arrangement on the 3PH and might not have been as well restrained side to side as he thought. That really might be the whole deal right there. If the rut was just deep enough to get the rock in the scoop to slide to the low side, the impact of the rock hitting the edge of the scoop could have been enough to knock the opposite rear wheel off the ground. Once a rear wheel is up, the front end is just going to let you go right on over, especially if that ballast rock kept shifting to the low side.


    Thing to focus on though? Use the ROPS and seatbelt as designed. Yes, even on a surface you think is flat.
