I thought I was having a bad day when I got a flat and had to get a new tire(they were already shot)
Then I was stacking brush into piles to move it to another area. Not sure how this happened but I think it was trapped in a vine that was attached to a big maple overhead. Saw it coming in and swung the machine into reverse quickly which accelerated the swing straight into the lap bar. Peeled the foam off it and would surely have ripped my guts out if the bar wasn't there.
Stay safe dudes. God wants me out there grading tomorrow I guess. Now i just need him to stop the rain. Even when you're doing everything right stuff goes wrong!
