Toledo: I had a brother killed in a grain bin full of corn and my father was killed when he got too close to the ditch on the tractor and it tipped over on him.Baron: My dad always told me if your dumb enough to get caught in the machine when there is no guard, you shouldn't be around it in the first place. But sometimes it just happens like they said. A Specially when you get in a hurry or when you don't pay attention

Chain feel off the pulley on the third beater of a manure spreader, I tried to push it in place, finger got caught between the sheave and belts and broke; Hitch pin (unlocked) came of the loaded wagon going down a hill, the wagon went in the river!!! (dad was real happy); Over-speeded a PTO driven sawbench, the flywheel came apart taking half the chest of one of our cowboys apart. Got the tractor struck by lightning trying to make it before the storm.
