    Another Tractor Roll-over thread

    So this happened today two doors up the street from me.

    He's very lucky. He didn't have a single scratch on his hide. I chalk that up to the (non-foldable) ROPS and his wearing of his seatbelt.

    It's a John Deere 2210 that suffered very few injuries. He was mowing up and down the slope, did something else for a minute and took it out of 4x4. He went back to the slope and headed downhill. The rear wheels started slipping and down he went. He nose-dived right off the 3' cliff, slammed into the ditch and rolled to the left side. His seatbelt kept him from getting pinned or thrown over the tractor before it could have landed on him. It was super humid and the grass was damp at best. He is a lucky man. That much I can tell you.

    I came over with the 2720 and used my Artillian fork frame, 2 of Kenny's Oblong Ring Slings, and some chain. We righted the tractor and towed it back up the hill to his home for further inspections and repair.

    He needs a new radiator, a hazard light assembly, one of the "P" lifting links for the mower, and a good washing. His hood has a slight dent just above the headlight. Overall he came out of this relatively ok.

    A quick order to GFP and a beer or two, and we'll have him back to mowing in no time. I think we're going to install some new front tires too.

    Glad he's OK, shoes ROPS AND seat belts work.
    From picture 2, I thought he was parallel to the ditch/cliff and got too close. Then in picture 4, 5, 6, you can see the tracks where he slid a long way down the hill.

    Probably could have pulled it off on dry grass.

    Me, I would be too much of chicken to even mow it at all. That looks steep beyond my comfort level.

    Too steep for me too Z5.

    Lucky man. Glad he wasn't hurt.

    I noticed the tractor at the top of the hill has the Roll-Gard folded down.

    Glad he is OK. One lucky guy.

    His tractor came out not too bad, either.

    Thanks for sharing. And glad you were there close by to help. I am sure he was, too.

    A lesson for all of us.

    Very lucky indeed!

    Good job with the pics - #5 & #9 show how really steep it is.

    Glad the operator was OK - and actually surprised at how little damage to the tractor although some bucks are involved. Man, I bet that was a hard hit when he nose-dived into the gully! A sore gut from the seat belt if nothing else.

    I guess I'm another one that wouldn't mow that with a tractor, but glad to see there were no injuries.


    Are his rear tires filled with anything? Seems like some form of rear or tire ballast (if he doesn't have it) might've helped prevent the slide as well.

    Yup, didn't have the ROPS up on my tractor yet as I had just gotten on scene to survey it. My tractor was fresh out of the garage sitting on the level road in that pic. When I went to use it, the ROPS went up, you darn tootin'.

    He doesn't have any rear ballast on the tractor, I offered to help liquid fill the tires if nothing else. His frame of mind has been "it's worked like this for years" and didn't want any advice. Now I think he's open to some suggestions.

    Nope it wouldn't help. If it's not in 4 wheel drive you just go for the ride. I went for that ride twice because I thought I had it in 4WD and didn't. I didn't have a drop off at the end of the ride though. First time I did a 180° turn and stopped at the level spot facing up hill. Second time I just turned it to do a half moon and made it go back up hill. That was with my 2210 and it had all 4 tires filled. Granted, I also had turf tires on it. Only thing hurt was my pride. Was pretty mad at myself. Took twice to learn my lesson.

    I have a similar hill on my property and it requires 4WD in both directions when mowing. The 2320 has loaded R4 tires and 5 x 42# suitcase weights on the front bracket and I still have to take it easy when descending that hill.

    You've got one lucky neighbor and thank God he was wearing his seat belt. Minimal damage. Easy repairs. Good lesson learned!
