 What is the Most Dangerous Equipment

I was alway afraid of the sickle bar mower when I was little.
I guess partly because my Uncle lost his finger to one when he was small. The chickens grabbed it and ran around with it until they ate it. The family had a porcelain milk jug in the form of a rooster. They would keep him in line by placing the jug in front him at the table. Our family inherited it and it sat in front of me reminding me of the sickle bar mowers protential.
Luckally the disk mowers are normally used now and haying does not seem so lethal.

 What is the Most Dangerous Equipment

Dad had part interest in a corn stock shredder. It had hammers that spun on a shaft horizonatlly against blades and chopped up the stocks and through it out a stack at the top. You would go down a couple of rows of stocks and it would fling the chaff high in the air. Once in a while it would jam and you would have to enter the fray, which looked like an iron maiden and free the material. The machine, which was towed and PTO driven would also grab the odd dirt clog, rock or other hard object and loft it high into the air. You did not want to get near the machine when it was working, but the tow bar really was not long enough to allow the operator to feel comfortable. I think they used it a couple of season and then reassigned it to the bone yard.

I don't know if we could put a label on a machine but we could probably label the individual more easily. They would be tired, frustrated with something even the machine as it may be failing to often, they would be under pressure from time, or maybe the weather. They had been in the same area of the machine and done the same thing or nearly the same thing times before or watched someone do it. The thoughts of safety are not in there mind only the competion of the job. There are probably a hundred more but the machine is not the problem as much as humans are.

 What is the Most Dangerous Equipment

Take frequent breaks is the best way to make safer equipment that I've heard.

A very modest uncle of mine caught his overalls in some sort of auger. He fortunately was able to get out of the overalls before getting pulled into the machinery. His wife was having a bridge party at the time so my uncle hid in the bushes in his underwear until everybody went home--or so the family story goes. To my uncle, the bridge party probably was more dangerous than the equipment.

Art makes a good point. I think three wheelers are dangerous but they can be ridden safely. The knucklehead who spent his money on a twelve pack instead of a helmet and is out for a hoot on the beach at midnight is a much bigger problem than the design of the machine.
The thing that scared the vinegar out of me when I was a kid were those big high speed belts that came off the side of the tractor and ran stationary equipment. They always struck me as highly unstable and most unforgiving.
Tom: Seems to me that most folks who wore coveralls back then didnít wear much in the way of underwear. All the more reason to spend the evening in the bushes I suppose. Hope they werenít rose bushes.

Oh yea, another candidate is the double bitted axe. After watching my brother nearly cleave himself asunder, I promised myself never to use one of those things to split firewood.

I thought of that too, but again it maybe the jerk on the handles.
When I was falling in the westcoast woods the IWA safety poster had your odds at 1:100 at being killed. The chain saw was just part of the hazards, barber chairs, cedar widow makers, poor roots, wind, rottin centers, hang ups, terrain, rock slides, bear etc.
