There are many tips in other Landscaping OSH Answers documents.
A tractor has a high centre of gravity when compared with a car or pickup truck. This fact makes them more prone to tipping over. It can take less than one second for a tractor to flip over backwards once the front wheels have left the ground.
Backing down a grade is risky. If brakes are applied, the tractor could rotate around the rear axle and tip over backward. The faster the speed and the steeper the slope, the greater the potential for flipping.
