I've read others talk about this and thought "Why don't they just open their eyes and be more careful". On my first lawn this morning with my ZTR and in the very far back of the property is this "little" slope with some water running at the bottom. well I made it around 2 trees already so I tried the third. Oh Oh. The back tires slid down the slope and there I was. Stuck in the mud. Couldn't go forward or backwards. Put some nice ruts there though. No help with me today either. Everyone I called wasn't home. Thought of using my walk behind to help pull it out. Had no rope. Had no one to drive it anyways. Finally managed to swing the front out and jockey it up the slope a bit. My aching back. 45 minutes later I drove it out. Man was I happy then. Covered in mud, but happy. Glad the lady wasn't home. Have to go back and finish fixing up the ruts though. Won't be doing that again.
