Abstract
1. In 2003, 87-year-old male farmer died while backing his Oliver Super 77 tractor with an attached 5·foot cut rotary mower into a storage area in an old barn. Running the length of the storage area was an enclosed round feed auger, which was 71 inches from the ground. 2. It is likely that the left rear tractor wheel tire traveled over a portion of a doorframe on the ground and raised the tractor. 3. Victim ducked his head to avoid the ceiling beam or he did hit his head on the bam beam and then had difficulty engaging the clutch to stop the tractor. 4. Sitting in the tractor seat, he was pinned between the enclosed auger and the tractor steering wheel.
