Lucky escape...

This happened in my city today, was on the news tonight.
Guy was screaming in pain from the machine crushing his legs on oysters. Made my skin crawl!!!!!
From the looks the machine had ROPS but looks like he wasnt wearing the seat belt. Lucky man all the same!

that guy is really strong. look at him lifting that whole tractor.

But in all seriousness this is another one of those reminders. that one time you forget your seat belt or left the glasses in the truck and don't want to get them. that's going to be the day you roll your mower or fling a rock in your eye

I hadnt seen that pic! Cheers mate!
I have a feeling it was a new machine (looks it) and the operator screwed up!
All said and done, glad he survived! Oysters (getting slashed by them) suck big time. Been there done that!
