Anyone who has ever lived or driven through a rural area dominated by farms has no doubt had to pass a farm tractor at some point in their travels. Yes, tractors are large and lumbering machines that aren’t exactly built for the handling rigors of the Autobahn, but they’re also the key to the livelihood of the farmer operating them so we’ve always given them a wide berth and passed when there was plenty of room to do so. The idiot truck driver in this video does neither and through total negligence he nearly kills the farmer while destroying his (seemingly) nice and fresh New Holland tractor.
Because the driver of the truck was cutting it so close and such a high rate of speed, it was one very small movement of the trailer that caught the fertilizer spreader mounted to the back of the New Holland and essentially whipped the thing around like it was a toy because of the speed differential between the truck and the tractor. Adding insult to injury the trucker just keeps on rolling as the tractor literally flips and lands on its wheels in the ditch facing the wrong way with what looks to be about a full load of granular fertilizer spread right down the road like a snow bank.
On the positive side, the tractor kept all of its structural integrity so the cab is pretty damned strong and maybe more suprisingly none of the massive wheels snapped off and went for a hike either. We’re guessing that despite the fact that the tractor is in one literal piece, there’s a huge repair bill coming at the farmer. Here’s to hoping that the guy had insurance on his machine and here’s to hoping that the driver of that big rig slips on a banana peel…into a samurai sword. Jerk.
