Cautionary Story Using Older Tractors With Leaf-Spring Seats
This is a cautionary story for your readers who still like to use older tractors with leaf-spring seats. An older farmer in our area liked mowing around his farm with an old Deere tractor with a spring seat that hung over the back of the tractor. He was pulling a bushhog mower when the seat spring broke, dropping him into the path of the mower and killing him. It took his family a few hours to realize he was missing and, needless to say, it was a very grim sight for the medical rescue team. Please be careful on your “old iron” and inspect all components regularly. (Ray Henderson, Newport, N.J.)
