Industrial tractor-mount subsoiler attachments are a type of agricultural equipment that attach to a tractor to help with the process of cultivating soil. They are commonly used in fields that have a lot of clay or rocky soil, as they can be used to break up these soils and make them more fertile. They work by rotating a large hoe at a high speed, which creates a deep trench in the soil.
Subsoiler accidents are a reality of farming. When digging or working with a tractor-mounted subsoiler, there is always the potential for injury. This can happen when the subsoiler digs too deeply and hits an object, such as a rock or pipe, becomes stuck, the operator falls off, or the tool comes into contact with an object that can cause serious injuries. The object might also trip the safety mechanism that releases the brakes on the subsoiler arm. If this happens, the tractor-mounted arm can swing forward, potentially striking operators or bystanders.
Serious injuries can occur when the tractor-mounted subsoiler digs too deeply and hits an object, such as a rock or pipe, that punctures the suction hose. The object might also trip the safety mechanism that releases the brakes on the subsoiler arm. If this happens, the tractor-mounted arm can swing forward, potentially striking operators or bystanders.
If the attachment is not properly secured, it can come off the tractor and cause injury to the operator or bystanders. In addition, the blades on a tractor-mounted subsoiler can easily slice through skin and other body parts.
Tractor-mount injuries can also occur when the operator is operating the machine at a speed that is too fast for the subsoiler’s cutting gear to handle. This can cause the machine to stumble or jump, which in turn can cause serious injury.
If you have been injured by a tractor-mount subsoiler attachment, you should contact an attorney. Tractor-mount attachments are dangerous and can cause serious injuries. An attorney can help you file a claim and pursue compensation for your injuries.
