"Mowing or using an N on a hill incorrectly is the 2nd most accident prone incident."
Tim, you've inspired me to "read-up" on correct procedures using 8N on hills. Various forums have a lot of experienced discussion of do's versus don'ts. Example: https://www.yesterdaystractors.com/cgi-bin/viewit.cgi?bd=nboard&th=597448

During search, one result caught my eye: "How fast can a Ford 8N tractor go?" I thought to myself, "Interesting, probably around 15 miles an hour." Their answer was a whopping 96 miles per hour! https://www.farmanddairy.com/uncategorized/1952-ford-8n-sets-land-speed-record-of-96-3185-mph/305627.html Good thing I'm putting an office chair with seatbelt & ROP on my tractor! lol ;-p

That goes back to Mike Wilson's quote: "What saves our rears is between our ears" where operator's common sense is the most important safety device on the tractor. :-) lol

If you have too much time and money, your farming head-piece might be a motorcycle crash helmet lol :-) let's just hope there's some common sense inside! .>8Q
