Speed Considerations

  • Speed is determined by work site conditions.
  • Machine speed should be restricted to walking speed approx – 5 mph.
  • When carrying a load, account for the type, size, etc. of the load being moved.

Power Take-Off (PTO)

  • PTO can be extremely dangerous!
  • Shoelaces, clothing, and hair can become entangled very quickly.


  • Do not wear loose clothing.
  • Disengage the PTO.
  • Shut off the tractor engine.
  • Never remove shields from the PTO shaft.
  • Never step over the shaft – walk around.
