OK, here is the story. I have two houses side by side. The fences in the back are off set, just enough to fit my walker through. Houses back up to a small river. Now, in the fall, we blow some of the leaves into the small wooded area above the stream. Yeah, I know it's wrong, but customer don't mind. Well at the end of the season last year, I plowed the leaves and branches over the edge. Cleaned up the area. Well now the customer wants to start a compost pile in this area. Asks me to dump a walker load or two of grass to get it started. Great, Less grass to take away. Well went to dump the first load today, and the area I plowed last year, started to slide into the river. I quickly slammed the drive forward, and slipped. My sweatshirt catches on something and the machine drives forward, dragging me. My face is inches away from the turning tire. Machine catches solid ground and slams right through the stockade fence, still dragging me. I reach with everything I had in me, and finally stop the mower, about six inches from the foundation of the customer's house. Customer saw the hole thing. She ran out to see if I was OK, which I was. Now I go and check on the fence, and only the screws pulled out of the post. A screwdriver and a couple of screws and all was fixed. She came out with a beer, and I had my first beer on the job, ever. Called it a day and went home. Tomorrow I will try to get the mower into someones living room.
