    one day i was helping my friend level apart of his yard so i got my craftsman 17.5 hp and we decided to take a huge load it had to weigh over 500 pounds so so the trailer was full i backed it to a 50 to 100 foot hill i had nobody to direct me so i went to far i put it in 3rd gear then the wheels sliped and there i go down the hill then the tractor must of fliped over me then i got up and went up the hill and had a 10 inch cut on my back a huge bunp and cut on my head and other cuts good thing i washed the back cut because there was battery acid all over it
