The tractor as pictured has no front ballast and the seat has no seat belt. It is highly likely if used as pictured, the tractor will tip to the rear because of the height and weight of the seat with the kids in it because of the ballast problem. When the seat hits the ground both kids and the driver are going to be ejected off and it is not going to be pretty.There’s nothing unsafe about the seat itself.
Sure...F.I.L. was a fireman...but that little hatchet wouldn't do much.What, you've never seen a fire axe before? Useful to smash a hole in a wall to get to burning materials or break through a locked door or window.
As your FIL knows if you want something to do that kind of job the proper tool is a Halligan not a weenie tot hatchetSure...F.I.L. was a fireman...but that little hatchet wouldn't do much.
Seriously though, I'd ride kids around in a cart...much better.

Something about the coloration of the picture. It looks photoshoppedAll it takes is for them to have an accident then sue Deere because the ROPS can fold. The we get tractors with non-folding ROPS and dealers would refuse to work on any tractor with a modified ROPS.
Most incredibily stupid thing I have ever seen!!!! The function of the ROPs is to ptotect driver in a roll-over situation. There is nothing protecting these two children or the driver for that matter in a rollover - nothing to protect the spinal column of the driver and kids would be crushed. Get rid of this contraption - now!!!!
