Mower accident

Today was a scary day on the golf course. As you can see I flipped the Sidewinder into a bunker.this has happened before, but was MY first time tipping one. There was a light mist all day and my back tire slipped while making a pass around #17s green side bunker. The back end slid into the bunker and gravity took care of the rest. We yanked her out with the tractor and was back up and running (without the roof) in about 45 minutes. No injuries thank god. Always wear your seat belt! If the mower has one, chances it'll come in handy one day.

Gee, good to see your ok, nice soft landing. Without the ROPS it could have been different.

Very true. That's what my boss kept saying. "We can replace the mower, not you." I felt like such an idiot for doing it but they assured me I wasn't the first to go into the bunker there! They sent me right back out on it which I was impressed by. I'm glad they did so I could get comfortable on it again. Today was the first time ever driving this mower.

Having to make the phone call to the boss was the scariest part!
