Many of us drive on the road with our tractors please remember to be careful. Flashers and SMV signs are not everything.
When you only have 9 horsepower you need to know the names of all of the ponies!

This is an unfortunate reminder that not only do we need to be alert while driving the tractor, but also when thinking about passing someone to watch for drives that they may turn into, especially when following something that may not have turn signals. Tractors and construction equipment often has the hazards and turn signals together, so sometimes its easy to not notice when the turn signal is turned on. A few years ago I was making a left turn (in a curve no less) with a JD 8400 and 27' tillage machine when a car that was three cars back passed us all. Fortunately I was paying attention and stopped, I just hope it scared him as much as it scared me! While I'm on my soapbox, please slow down in construction zones or anywhere there are road workers. I can't believe how many idiots have drivers licenses! Now I've got that off my chest, thanks. John
