I understand how dangerous they are simply from watching the video. All you have to do is take a look at the pancake shaped cars.

What is this obvious statement day? Tractors and heavy equipment are the most likely thing to kill you on a farm. That's like saying automobiles are the number one cause of deaths for a person whose jaywalking. Or bullets are the number one cause of death for a person whose staring down the barrel of a gun.

I live in rural Eastern, NC and see heavy equipment every day of my life. They are all around my house. A few of my friends are farmers and live right down the road.

I'm not going to sit here, argue and try to make anyone believe I can hop on that tractor in the video. But don't tell someone else they can't do it just because you can't.

It's a shame those cars got destroyed.

Doesn't take a superman just someone with an average fitness level and the understanding of basic physics, e.g. a 7 ton object moving along a fixed path will not instantaneously reverse itself.

True, however how does he gain access from the back of a machine moving along. The operator station sits 5 feet off the ground. To enter from the back where entry is not intended and it sits 8 feet off the ground? There is no decent place to have any sort of footing to climb inside that machine.
