    Default Tractor related bonehead move of the month-I'll start

    Had been working on my Rhino tractor cleaning a magnet that's in the main intake feed line, before the hydraulic pump for the loader. Had the hood tilted forward for access and decided to cycle the loader to check for leaks, you can probably guess what happened next....

    Going to try to repair the damage. Hope no one else has done anything like this??-rhino-bone-head-caused-carnage

    I've done a couple of things like that ( before I joined TBN to be in keeping with jerrybob's pronouncement ) At least it looks like it can be straightened.

    While trying to load a large landscape timber into a dumpster it rolled back, and I got a dent like that. Just glad that it got the hood and not me!

    Many owners of tractors with quick attach loaders have creases across their hoods...

    Harbor Freight sells a body/fender repair kit for cheap. Worked beautifully on my tractor hood, fenders, roof.
