    I just started cutting on Thursday, I never saw so many tissues on my lawns before.... I picked most of them up, but did run over a few with the Z, :angry: It makes me very angry when one tissue can turn into 50 pieces..., do any of you guys have the same problem..... Throw your tissues in the trash@!!!!!!!!:blob2:

    Never had that problem....but what i hate is the dang hoses, the green ones that blend in with thick grass, and get rapped around the blades......:angry:

    I hate it when it is really windy and they blow under the deck. I usually move them with my ez reach, or discharge side. At least I haven't ran over any hidden newspapers- a former employee did once and it was UNreal the mess it made.

    Messing up my blades is one thing....... the chain coming out of the ground braking and smacking my face is another!!!!! Thats what i worry about.

    I hit a ciggeret (sp) box one time, there was more tissue & foil in that package than a box of klenex.
