    How NOT to unload a tractor

    My neighbor had one of his customers deliver their tractor for repair. It had rained the night before. Here was the end result.

    He ended up trapped under the tractor, called 911 and they removed from the beneath the tractor. Fortunately for him all he got was a sprained back nd a few bruises. If you look into the picture he actually parked on a hill. I have no idea what made him do that. Wet trailer, parked on a hillside ended up a disaster for him and the tractor. But overall he is doing good. Thee tractor was a 2040 series.

    Um...there's a bit more going on there than an unwelcome hill. That trailer should be red tagged for repair before anything is loaded on it.
