Never reach down to pick up something off the ground while setting in the tractor seat. A friend of ours did that and lost the use of and crippled up her arm when her foot slipped off the clutch causing the tractor to flip rolling over a bank with the spinning blades chopping up her arm that was under the mower deck.

Always have ROPS up and seat belt fastened when using a FEL being sure you have proper ballast on the rear of the tractor.

But it still applies to the other 1%. The rear ballast issue applies to all tractors operating a FEL whither or not the tractor has ROPS and a seat belt. What prompted My comment/post was the pictures I've seen on this site of Simplicity Legacy XL Tractors Operating a FEL without a ROPS on the tractor. This tractor is available with a ROPS and Seat Belt therefor it should be purchased with those items; especially if the tractor is going to be used with a FEL. My comments are based solely on my concern for the operators safety and well being and has nothing to do with the make or brand of tractor. I would have said the same thing had the pictures been of a Kubota or any other brand. A FEl is one of the easist ways to upset a tractor. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I dont disagree with you on your points at all. The problem is the way you entered into the subject, I imagine very few persons here had any idea what you were talking about when refferring to "FEL "( Front End Loader) and maybe even "ROPS" (Roll Over Protective Structure) Surely no one had any idea it was compact tractors with loaders that was the topic from your first posting. I sure didnt till you posted the second time.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
