Manhole cover I seen it today and some how I hit it with the blade
Always went over top of it.
So when was done mowing check the blade out and it was up side down
Thought I could trust the guy to put blades on right but guess I'm going have check treat him like a kid

Retaining wall on a steep hillside, mower slid right over it. Wright Sentar wide open in reverse, slid right on over. Not too high, mower didn't turn over and I got it turned before it ran into the deep end of the swimming pool. can't remember how the blades looked, my shorts were still clean.

Not the biggest but, dog runs are the worst. The lady said nothing was in the grass. I started cutting and two minutes later I hit the dog run cable. I didn't have any tools with me so, I told her I'd bring her porch post back the next day. You should have seen the look on my wife's face when I got home with this big post on my trailer. Don't worry It wasn't that big a deal. I used the zero turn to jerk the post off the porch.

i hit a golfball that went directly through the side of a house. plywood and all. it was when they were building the house. Construction workers walked outside and started laughing. it must of caught the blades just right, it was going at least triple the speed of the fastest drive i ever made (golfing.)

not the biggest, but funniest was a newspaper. I hit it with a 60" ZTR which we had side discharge on at the time. It was like I was in a parade for a second. It took me 15min to rake it out of the customers yard.

Biggest thing was a momma rabbit and her babies. Grass was thicker at the wet end of a commercial property. I was running faster than I should. Never saw them. Sounded awful. Still bothers me. Yeah, I know, get over it, but it does bother me.

I wrapped an 8' piece of 5/8 rebar around by 6' brushhawg blades. Bending it to get it out wasn't the bad part. Bad part is it punctured 3 holes in my rear R4 tires. $75 to mow the lot...$80 to patch the holes and refill it with fluid. Do u call that making money?
