Safety

Operate Tractor Safely

Never allow riders on the tractor.

Slow down for hillsides, rough ground, and sharp turns. Couple the brake pedals together before driving at transport speeds.

To avoid exhaust gas hazards, never run the engine in a closed building.

Avoid Tip-Overs

If your tractor is equipped with a Roll-Gard, use the seat belt under almost all operating conditions.

Use of seat belt is not recommended for tractors without a rollover protective device.

Avoid holes, ditches, etc. which may cause the tractor to tip, especially on hillsides.

Never drive near the edge of a gully or steep embankment. It might cave in.

Driving forward out of a ditch or mired condition or up a steep slope could cause tractor to tip over rearward. Back out of these situations if possible.

Hitch towed loads only to the drawbar. When using a chain, take up the slack slowly.

Handle Chemicals Properly

When using agricultural chemicals, follow the instructions given in the implement operator’s manual and those given by the chemical manufacturer.

Avoid Exhaust Fumes

Do not operate engine inside a closed building.

If a Roll-Gard canopy is installed, also install an exhaust extension.

A horizontal exhaust system is available for applications where a vertical exhaust would be in the way. See your John Deere dealer.

  1. Your John Deere 950 Operator’s Manual is very useful. Like you said it is really not easy to find good information about this old one online. My question is , is it possible to put online eventually the other section of your book, page 60 and over? Thank you very much and I wish you the best.

    1. You are very welcome! I find it helpful when I am outside, trying to figure something out about my 950 compact utility tractor and I’ve left the manual inside.I can still use the smartphone.
