Cover Prevents Kids From Accidentally Activating Electric-Over-Hydraulic Controls
Newer farm machinery is generally equipped with electric-over-hydraulic controls that can be engaged with just a touch of a finger. I came up with this protective cover to prevent kids from accidentally activating the controls. It consists of sheet metal formed to cover all the controls on the console and a keyed latch to hold it securely in place. Padding on the bottom side prevents scratching. I lock the cover in place whenever getting out of the cab, especially when small children are around. (Eric Schmidgall, 33652 Townline Rd., Mackinaw, Ill. 61755 ph 309-392-2322)
