My grandfather should have been killed by a gehl feed mill. Where the auger pivots the spider gears caught the sleeve of his shirt and pulled his arm into the gears the hired hand got the tractor shut down as his shoulder was being pulled in. It removed all of the muscle from where the elbow bends to his shoulder. They saved his arm but he had very limited use picking anything up.
