nope, I only have one small area that could be considered a problem. The belt does not easily adjust for size like a car seat belt, and it's a pain. I've used tractors for over 30 years and never had a problem. It's called be cautious on hills. btw, it a JD655

Nope....and we all should. I know that makes me stupid!! I know or knew a guy drove a tractor for over 40 yrs, a full time farmer. He was very respectful and cautious with equipment...more so than most I know. In a split second, crushed by his tractor. Dead. It only takes once.

Not for mowing flat areas but always when using the front loader and when working on hills. I almost tiped one once and learned my lesson. I've been wearing the belt for 20 yrs now.

Most definitely! I operate my little JD 750 on my hunt club's 700 acres of property, which we lease from paper companies. The land is rolling hill type terrain to start with. Then, add in the washouts from rain, deep ruts that the skidders leave behind, deep gullies, and it gets to be pretty rough to drive over. All we are trying to do is to keep the firebreaks and skidder trails open, and a few open, level areas that we plant food plots. I just feel much safer with it on, anyway.Be safe!Keith

Only when I get scared or when my wife yells at me. Seriously , I wear it on the hills and when I have a load in the bucket on the hills. I guess that is where I get scared.

All the time. It is automatic for me to put it on in the car and when I get on the tractor, I put it on with out thinking. I even reach for the belt when I get on the garden tractor or the Gator. We have very hilly land and I am fairly new to the tractor.

Absolutely!! I just traded a NH 1710 for my Kubota 3410 in part because it did not have a ROPS and I did not always feel safe on it. I know of at least one case where an operator fell off of the machine and was crushed by the rear wheel. The moral is that the seat belt is not just for roll-overs and should be worn at all times.

I'm guilty of not wearing the belt on my JD855 when mowing on flat ground, but I'll ditto Dave's remarks above when it comes to loader work on hillsides. I too came very close to rolling a tractor in that very situation many years ago. One near miss on a hillside is all I needed to start wearing my seatbelt from that point forward. Don't wait for the near miss because you might not be that lucky!

I am a delivery driver for U.P.S.I've been strapping myself in a setbelt over a 100 times a day for the past 21 years,so the procedure is kind of routine.So when I get off work I put on the belt for the trip home and put on the belt when I climb on our tractor to mow the yard.Anyone who thinks they can out-jump a rolling tractor,compact or not,is literally taking there life in there own hands.I know two people who have survived compact rollovers and knew one who did'nt.I don't think I need to say who had the belt on and who did'nt.
