How Tractor Guard Works
Most Innovative Farm Invention Award LAMMA 2012
Tractor Guard was invented in April 2011 in Birmingham, UK by a farmer (Bill Rushton) and an engineer/auto electrician (Matt Smith).
After seeing and hearing stories of smashed tractor windows caused by flying debris from hedge cutters, flail mowers and while transporting tractors.
The pair began testing ideas to prevent this. With operator safety and owner costs in mind, Tractor Guard was born.
Tractor Guard’s protective shields are made from a clear polycarbonate, similar to material used in police riot shields, and are held in place using durable suction spacers and bungee cords.
