This is so unfortunate. It’s critical to follow the proper safety precautions.


Paul, Thank you for posting this. It happens all too often. My neighbor was killed using a bush-hog to mow his 1/2 acre lot. He was cutting on a very small but steep hill which he’d mowed for years with the same tractor. The tractor tipped, he fell off & was run over by the bush-hog.

I can not fathom how this could have happen unless one of the safety devices were non-functional. The article suggest that maybe the driver was run over by his own tractor. Wonder how often this happens.
