Due to the nature of crop spraying .. low level ..often with many obstructions ....crop sprayers operate in a high risk environment. Fortunately, crop sprayers are built with crash protection in mind therefore most of the accidents are survivable so it makes sense to protect your head from making contact with the panel in an otherwise survivable accident.

Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
But today is a gift.
That's why it's called the present.
