As listed before, ALMOST word for word...
I worked at Ford Tractor for 6 years, and we did a few rollover tests; both on a gradient hill that started at 10° and went to 50°, and pulling where you aren't supposed to pull (longitudinal flipping). What was the question?
If it's when a tractor will roll, it really depends on the tractor, whether you have ballasted the tires, etc., but on a hill you'd be surprised how many will get to 45° without coming close to tipping. You'd fall out of the seat before the tractor starts to turn.
As for pulling, if you hook to anything above the actually factory approved tow bar could cause the thing to flip. The tow bar is attached underneath the tractor in front of the rear wheel. Any point behind the wheel could upset the cart, so to speak.
