Cute little fellow!

I assume that he is in relation to you?

Better he learns how physical principles like that work when his tractor weighs 40lbs then later in life when they weigh 400lbs to several ton. ;)

I'm reminded of an incident about 30 years ago. A good friend got off his idling big ol' Massey Harris to open a farm gate. ... Last thing he ever did. It rolled and got him.. It could have been so easily prevented too.

And people wonder why there are so many operator presence devices in place now. Simply to prevent unfortunate events like that, sorry to hear about your friend, thanks for sharing.

My Suburban tractors make me super cautious! My neighbor had a ST-12 like mine. He got off it once, kicked it into gear. Ran down an embankment and almost hurt him!! I am super careful not to kick it into gear!

It's just so easy to get hurt when you lose control of a machine with a lot of power. That accident might be a valuable lesson for that little fella. ;)

my 92 year old father in law rolled his craftsman rider this past summer....had a cart loaded with dirt and one wheel of the cart went just slightly over a rather steep hill....good thing I was home and thank the good Lord for cell phones...I expected to see him all torn up but all he had was a scrape on his leg...he was more shaken up than hurt..now the mower , that's a different story...
