Agriculture Agent, Mark Hagedorn, Co-Authors Document

Our very own Agirculture Agent, Mark Hagedorn, has co-authored a document on Skid Steer Loader Safety. Many farmers find the skid steer loader’s maneuverability unmatched by traditional tractor-loader combinations especially for handling manure. But because these vehicles differ from farm tractors in everything from steering to dismounting, they present some unique hazards. This publication highlights the primary risks of using a skid steer loader to encourage safe vehicle operation (4 pages; 2017). (Description from The Learning Store)
