    was the guy a home owner or an LCO who crashed the ztr into the suburan?

    i hope this guy has insurance, to cover this.... b/c new suburan don't come cheap. they usually sell for around $35-45k (depending on the package) new.

    I dont know if he is insured but the side of the truck is scratched and dented really bad (driver and pass doors). The guys Hustler just bounced off the side of the truck and it was perfectly fine.

    the closest i've come is hitting my tire on the truck with my front caster. I'm very careful around other peoples vehicles though.

    I loaned a buddy a Toro Zmaster outfront a few years back.

    First thing I asked him - you know how to use this right? Of course he did - ya right.

    He takes the levers, jerks them back and forth and smacks into his Mustang with the hopper. HUGE dent in the rear fender.

    I almost died laughing!

    When I was much younger (8 probably) I was working with my father. I decided I would drive the walkbehind back to the truck. Never opperated this before. I released the grips, the mower was at top speed, and the thing took off like a rocket. Slammed into the side of a car, didnt do much damage, but scared me good!

    My motto is to keep the mower on the grass. Im not sure about the rest of you grass cuttin fools, but it works for me. :p
