A biggie is to have both feet on the velke when it jacks, and the trailing arm catches an ankle...
But you can also trip and have the mower on top of you quick.

So I think it's safe to say be careful.
Well said TS. That's why I like the step saver type that BOP uses. It can still toss you off if your not careful. I learned the hard way the first week I owned it. LOL Threw me right off the back. I let go of one side of the controls and off I went. I had to do a tuck and roll. Glad the homeowners weren't home. LOL
