    Default Wear Seatbelt When Using Backhoe?

    My BX25 has a reversing seat for use with the backhoe. Should I have the seat belt on when using the backhoe? I have up until now, but now I'm wondering if I should...

    Yes, that's what I figured, but I was not sure since I don't think most backhoes with separate seats have seatbelts (or do they ).

    Why? Do you think you are going to turn the tractor over using the backhoe? I guess, if so, then use the seatbelt.

    I was better, but I got over it.

    Our dealer said that most rollovers occur when using backhoe. I guess I'll be using the seatbelt then...

    My one year old Woods BH90-X backhoe does not have a seatbelt.

    Yes, I did not think that most came with seatbelts. I just wanted to make sure it would not hurt to wear it. (like wearing it if the ROPS is down)

    Yes, I know. I just wanted to make sure that it was not going to be harmful to wear the seat belt...
