Another tragedy involving child riders

Recommended Posts

"The paramedics said there was not much left of the boy. ". The child did die. From what I understand he was ground up beyond recognition. Everyone should consider accidents like this one before they give in to a child and let them ride on power equipment at work. Not worth the risk as far as I'm concerned. I watch my neibor up the road holding her baby in one arm and running the Garden Tractor while mowing with the other all the time,..... makes me cringe.

My neighbor does it with his baby while cutting deep ditch on a tractor with no cab, a batwing mower, now that would be bad, trajedy happens too much, it seems like before all the safety things, less accidents, like 4 wheelers and 3 wheeelers and so on.-BradW

Saw on the news where a grandfather(I think) was giving his 4 year old grandson a ride on the fender of the garden tractor while mowing. The boy fell off and the grandfather did not realize it till the wide self powered pull behind mower he was using too started dragging down. The paramedics said there was not much left of the boy. My God! When will people wake up and pay attention to the simple safety guidelines that prevent this in the first place. Can you imagine how that guy must feel?

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
