 A pain in the neck

I am interested to know what people are using out there to help them see what is happening behind them with out actually turning your head to have a look. Are you folks using mirrors (single or multiple, regular or convex), or more expensive devices like cameras and screens? I was thinking of mounting mirrors on the vertical loader frame supports but that would only give me limited view and would interfer with getting on and off the tractor. Are there any other ideas that have worked for anyone out there? I need something that will stand up to snow blowing, dust, and be protected from the odd tree branch. Where and how is this equipment being mounted? I have a New Holland TC33D (no cab) with ROP and a loader. I am using a rear-mounted mower, a scraper blade and a rear mounted snow blower. Hans

 A pain in the neck

I am not sure if you are looking just to see behind such as when driving on the road or are trying to see the implement and what it is doing. My ad hoc solution to the first was an old [and large] rear view mirror that was laying around. I mounted on a big spring clip like those used in a wood working shop. I clip it to the FEL upright. It is easy to adjust and is enough off to the side to see what is behind me. Since it is on a spring clip, if it gets hit, it will move or just pop off. I know as I have had it knocked off while clearing brambles with the rotary cuttter. Fortunately I did not subsequently run over it. I have also seen rearview mirrors mounted on the underside of a canopy.

I like the idea with the clip Doug. I was wanting to see what the implement was doing. I would mainly like to see what I was backing into and for guidance as where the edges of the implement was going. Hans

Hans, I have a convex mirror on my canopy frame. I put it on there so I can see anything coming from behind when I'm on the road around here, and it serves that purpose, but as a lot of auto mirrors are labelled "objects are closer than they appear." One of these days I'm going to find a better (flat) mirror to replace it.

 A pain in the neck

Arthritis in my back gives me limited ability to see what is happening behind the tractor, so I followed up on a message about the availability of rear-view mirrors specially built by John Deere for the 4000 series. My dealer didn't have anything on them, but using the part number given in the message, he found a listing in the JD computer and ordered them. The mirrors come in pairs, one for each side, attach to the handholds mounted on each fender. They cost $99, but I have found them worth every penny. They are very sturdy, and work great. If anyone is interested, I will try to locate that number.

 A pain in the neck

Hans, I'm with you. After a couple hours of trying to get the height on the box scrapper right, my neck and back are hurting. If it weren't for my 10 year old son giving me neck rubs I don't know where I'd be. I have a TC29D and it has the rotating seat, but even with that you still have to stay somewhat straight to keep your foot on the HST pedal. I've only got about 20 hours of tractoring in and was wondering if this is the dark secret of tractor owners or if perhaps I'll develop stronger neck and back muscles and this ache will go away.

Yup they will just like bi-focals. I find in the winter sometimes I get a little sore. I guess a couple of aching muscles is a lot better than a lot of them with sweat. Enjoy!

 A pain in the neck

I put a rear view mirror on my canopy for highway driving. The mirror is from an extended side-view mirror for trucks. I was able to remove the mirror and mounting arm from the rest of the assembly and drill a mounting hole through a box beam on the canopy. A lot of wide load transports on the highway, and the mirror makes the trip more relaxed.

I don't think I'd want to depend on a mirror to see how implements were working. My back neck and shoulders are probably as bad as anybody's. I spent about 2-years in physio recovering from a neck/elbow problem followed by a severe lower back injury. Now, I just turn around on my fixed seat. Many pain problems associated with this sort of twisting are due to lack of joint mobility. I got some exercises from the physios that help maintain their work. I no longer have easy access to physios after we moved to the country. My wife found a book titled 'Pain Free' that contains some explanations and some exercises. As long as I do my own version of the physio/book exercises my neck/back problems are manageable. The exercises mostly involve laying around in particular positions for short lengths of time. This isn't medical advice, but it works for me and is consistent with the medical advice I did receive, which is something that should be sought for any severe problem.
