Damn! Glad no one was hurt. I wonder how did that happen?

That would give me an easy access to cleaning off the mower.

[QUOTE=Mr Lawns;2536584]I took the ROPS off of all of our mowers. you can't get under trees with ROPS.

Do you have employees ? if so be careful removing safty equip. (ROPS). OSHA would have a field day.
Not trying to lecture, I took mine off for same reason. I nearly gave myself a concussion when they caught a branch, it wacked me in the face, I jerked my head back straight into them, & they were down to. That was the final straw it seemed the nearly caused more accidents catching stuff even while down in 1 year, than I had ever had in my 10 yrs on a ZTR. If I hire employees again though they will be back on.

Glad you weren't hurt. You were lucky that you were able to jump clear when the control levers would have been a hindrance for getting off. Curious, were you able to find neutral quickly to spread the levers apart or did you slip out without them spread apart?
