Kubota Tractor – Run Overs

When considering Kubota tractor safety, the incidences of runover are an important factor, both in terms of research in showing that these are a significant number in terms of farm accidents, and also in terms of showing that to a large extent they are preventable, if certain basic safety protocols are adhered to by the operator of a Kubota tractor.

The dangers of a Kubota tractor run over fall into three main areas. The first is when a Kubota tractor is carrying more than one person, and that person falls off and is injured or damaged by being run over by the Kubota tractor.

It is perhaps one of the most basic rules of tractor safety that only one person should be sitting or driving the tractor at any one point. Kubota tractors are designed to be used only by one person, and the dangers and risks of having another person on the Kubota tractor at the same time can be severe.

Kubota B Series Tractor Safety

There may be more than one person on a tractor for a number of reasons. It may be that if the driver of a Kubota tractor is either young or inexperienced, there may be another person standing next to them on the tractor giving advice or showing them how they should be driving it.

It may be that a Kubota tractor driver wants to have a friend along and now sharing the cab all the seat with them.

It may also be that the Kubota tractor driver wants to have one of their children or siblings along with them whilst driving the tractor. It cannot be stressed too much, that all of these scenarios are potentially extremely dangerous and should be avoided at all costs.

A Kubota tractor is designed specifically to have one person on at any time and only one person.

The other danger of run overs is to the operator or operative of the Kubota tractor themselves. Accidents of this type happen when for any reason the operator of the Kubota tractor is knocked off the tractor whilst it is in motion and subsequently run over. This quite often happens on older tractors where there is no rollover protective system, and the driver can be knocked off the tractor by a low hanging branch or other obstacle or hazard.

An operator of a Kubota tractor can also be run over if they leave the tractor in order to do any type of adjustment or work on the tractor, without first having made sure that the engine is switched off and that any parking protocols are in place so the tractor cannot move.

Often an operator will do things quickly because they are in a rush, but this but this is an area where great care should be taken.

The other type of runover incident involves the driver of a Kubota tractor either hitting or being in collision with a person on the ground that they are unaware of. This can quite often happen with young children or adolescents who are attracted to the sight or noise of a tractor and want to see it up more closely.

The really important safety feature here is the realisation that driving a Kubota tractor of being aware that other people are in the vicinity where it is being used, and to make absolutely sure that there are no children or adolescents anywhere near the Kubota tractor when it starts up or whilst is being used.

Risks such as this are a real reminder to the driver of a Kubota tractor that a farm is a very real workplace and there is a need for very real health and safety understanding, both when using a Kubota tractor, and for an understanding of the environment around where the Kubota tractor is being used,

This applies both in terms of the actual environment of land and buildings, and the people who live or work on the farm as well.

Kubota tractor- overturns

When driving a Kubota tractor, being aware of the risk of overturning on any type of land is hugely important, as this is one of the major factors of Kubota tractor safety.

Tractor overturns generally, account for approximately one half of all fatalities that occur on farms that are caused by or affected by tractors.

Tractor overturns as they are known tend to be when the tractor either falls on its side or falls backward. Obviously this type of fall is extremely dangerous for the operator of the Kubota tractor, and great care should be taken to avoid situations where a potential overturn could happen.

Kubota  B Series Tractor Safety

There are a number of common scenarios when driving a Kubota tractor that can potentially cause the Kubota tractor to overturn. Being aware of these in advance can give the driver of a Kubota tractor a mindset which will hopefully prevent them putting themselves in a situation that could lead to a potential fatality.

Many tractor overturns occur when the driver of the tractor is turning or driving too close to the edge of a bank or a ditch, or on any type of land where there is a sudden slope, or fall off. It is important to remember when driving a Kubota tractor, that whilst you may be on flat land most of the time, it is not like a road.

Driving too close to a ditch, or the edge of a field where there is a dip can be extremely dangerous if you’re driving a Kubota tractor.

Driving on open roads and lanes can also be extremely dangerous, on a Kubota tractor, partly because driving a capital contractor on a road is a very different proposition to driving an automobile on the road. Kubota tractors will not have the suspension or driveability of an automobile and needs to be driven much more slowly than you would drive a car.

Kubota tractors will often be used on open roads and lanes, both for accessing other parts of the farm, and for transporting goods and materials to other areas of land within the farm. Great care needs be taken when driving Kubota tractors on open road.

Kubota BX Series Tractor Safety

Great care need to be taken when driving up or down a slope of any size or angle, when using a Kubota tractor. It is very easy to underestimate the real angle of a slope, and the driver will not realise it until they are on the slope and unable to get off.

It is really important when driving a Kubota tractor never to go up or down the slope is too steep, but find some other mechanism for doing the work required of such a slope.

The other type of overturn that can happen with a Kubota tractor, as with any type of tractor is when a Kubota tractor suddenly turns sharply, whilst it has a front end loader that is raised quite high.

When using a front-end loader on a Kubota tractor, it is extremely important to realise that the height and angle of the loader will make the Kubota tractor potentially more unstable, and needs to be driven with much more care.

Most if not all modern Kubota tractors will be fitted with what is known as a rollover protective structure which can help prevent serious injury to the operative. A Kubota tractor should also be fitted with a seatbelt that the operative wears at all times.

Both these factors are perhaps two most important safety elements for a Kubota tractor driver to adhere to in order to prevent serious injury in the event of an overurn.

Kubota Tractor Safety – Tractor Hazards

It is important to realise, given that most tractors are used on some type of farm or agricultural or industrial land that could be classified under the term farm, that a farm is a workplace and is very susceptible to workplace related injuries for a wide variety of reasons.

Farms are notoriously difficult to regulate in terms of health and safety legislation and procedures, simply by nature of the type of environment and the type of work that is done on a farm.

For this reason it is important to realise that understanding Kubota tractor hazards are an important feature of keeping a farm environment safe, and protecting both the operative of the Kubota tractor and other people who may be in a position whereby to be affected by any accident or incident involving a Kubota tractor.

It is estimated in the United States, that nearly one third of all fatalities and accidents that occur on farms relate to tractors generally. There are four main areas of hazard that can apply to any type of tractor, and Kubota tractors are well placed to be used in a safe and productive manner.

The four main types of tractor hazard are overturns, run overs, Power takeoff entanglements, and the dangers associated with older Kubota tractors, and generally older tractors including antique tractors.

Kubota tractor safety issues

Overturning a Kubota tractor is perhaps the most common and major hazard that can be faced by anyone driving or using a Kubota tractor.

It is estimated that about half of all fatalities connected with tractors on farms generally come from overturning. This can involve a tractor turning on its side, or falling or turning backwards.

Most of these accidents are preventable with a number of basic safety protocols are carried out when driving a Kubota tractor, most of which are really common sense.

It is also important to stress when driving a Kubota tractor that the operator or operative should never be under the influence of any alcohol or any type of drug, prescribed or otherwise.

Whilst this may seem obvious, there might be pressures that might make someone cut corners on this type of protocol.

If the driver or operator of a Kubota tractor is under the influence of any alcohol or drugs, then their judgement is likely to be impaired, often significantl,

This will inevitably affect their judgement in certain areas, and this could significantly impact on their safe driving or not of a Kubota tractor.

Kubota – Agricultural tractors

Kubota b or bx series tractor safety is perhaps one of the most important aspects to learn and understand in order to use a Kubota b or bx series tractor to its maximum effect, both in terms of ensuring that the work is carried out in an effective and safe manner, without any sense of risk, or minimal sense of risk to the operative of the Kubota b or bx series tractor or Kubota b or bx series agricultural machine.

Understanding that a Kubota b or bx series tractor has been designed to do very specific jobs of work is an important mindset to develop. There is often a belief that a Kubota b or bx series tractor is almost a sort of farm toy, or at least an agricultural machine that does not need to be taken as seriously as a number of other agricultural machines.

A Kubota b or bx series tractor can have either narrow and wide front ends, can be either two wheel drive or four-wheel-drive or articulated. What are referred to as articulated Kubota b or bx series tractors tend to be very large machines, that are normally only operated by extremely experienced operatives and used on large agricultural projects.

An important safety aspects of most if not all current Kubota b or bx series tractors is what is known as a rollover protective structure, which is effectively a metal bar designed to prevent serious damage to the driver of the Kubota b or bx series driver in the event of the Kubota b or bx series tractor turning over.

Kubota Tractor – b series safety

A Kubota b or bx series tractor will have been designed with a number of work purposes or types of jobs specifically in mind. A Kubota b or bx series tractor will be able to move loads, have a remote power source, be an implement carrier and be a transport unit.

Understanding the specific types of work and jobs at a Kubota b or bx series tractor has been designed to do is important in terms of understanding the safety protocols that need to go with operating a Kubota b or bx series tractor.

Understanding the work of a Kubota b or bx series tractor is also important as being able to distinguish it from being something that can be played around with, or used for things such as tractor races, which would always be discouraged.

Kubota Tractor Safety Concerns

Learning about Kubota b or bx series tractor safety is something that can be done in a variety of ways and something that should be encouraged in a formal sense as well as in the practice of learning on the job when driving the Kubota b or bx series tractor.

Things such as watching or taking photos or video footage of Kubota b or bx series tractors in use can show how they are meant to be operated in a safe and practical manner. There are many videos on YouTube and many pictures online showing Kubota b or bx series tractors in their true environment.

There are also a number of newspaper and magazine articles and pictures showing different types of tractors, including Kubota b or bx series tractors doing different jobs of work. These will help to emphasise the practical work of Kubota b or bx series tractors and to say it as an effective agricultural machine, to say in its true light.
