Driving A Tractor With Your Feet

The Automobile

Don’t forget to grind a couple pounds of hamburger on your gear train as you struggle to find third gear.

You turn the steering wheel in the direction you want to go.

Now let’s talk about a tractor.

You better pray you learned to fly before you got on that darned thing.

The small, close set wheels in the front were made that way so the driver could fit the nose of the tractor between planted rows of crops.

See? Pretty neat idea right?

Again, You better pray you learned to fly before you got on that darned thing.

FIGURE EIGHT — RIGHT FOOT BREAK, FIGURE EIGHT — LEFT FOOT BREAK.

Heaven on Earth.

Yeah we were running zero turn equipment before it was cool.

Just remember. You turn them with your hands.

Although I’m sure there are some of us who do use their feet to turn an automobile.

I’m betting they wouldn’t have a lick of trouble turning a Series M Farmall tractor.
