#2 Safety equipment is there for a reason. Use it!
This one needs no explanation and makes it to every single list we post on TractorByNet. Modern tractors are equipped with safety features designed to keep you alive—if you don’t use them, they can work against you. Or just not work at all. Either way, do the smart think and keep the safety equipment on your machine and don’t think you’re smarter than the engineers and laws that put them in place. Yes, that means no driving with the ROPS folded down!
