SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, September 21, 2016 Page 7 arm vehicle safety tips Harvest season means more farm vehicles will be sharing the roadways with other vehicles. That includes combines and other harvesting equipment moving from one field to another, as well as trucks and tractors transporting produce. To help ensure your safety: Display the Slow Moving Vehicle (SMV) emblem on all off-road vehicles. Make sure emblems are in good condition and properly mounted. Use proper vehicle lighting. Use flashers anytime you use public roads. The American Society of Agricultural Engineers (ASAE) recommends two flashing amber lights, mounted at least 42 inches high, in both the front and rear. Comply with your state laws. Most state laws require using headlights 30 minutes before sunset, until 30 minutes after sunrise. Also use headlights whenever insufficient light or unfavorable weather conditions exist. ASAE recommends two headlights on the front, at the same level, positioned as far apart as possible. They also recommend one rear-left and one rear-right red taillight mounted as far apart as possible, and two red reflectors visible from the rear. Inspect hitches to verify they are sturdy and properly mounted before towing equipment or using wagons. Always use safety chains, if equipped. m September 18-24, 2016 I Think Safety First on the Farm '!'i[ I Westbrook, MN 56183 I Bus: 507-27zb6164 Toll Free: 800-726-6164 I 1211999 State Farm, BLoomington, IL 507-274-6101 241442 A DUPONT COMPANY 32159 330th St. Westbrook, MN 56183 (507) 274-5132 Westbr00k (507) 829-5242 Cell email: on machinery and equipment.
