    When You think you've seen just about every thing you pull up to do an estimate and the guy that lives next door is mowing with a 19'' and wearing a bike helmet and knee pads :confused:
    I had to leave and come back latter because I was rolling around the inside of my UTE and I just couldn't stop. I wish I had a camera with me. You probably had to be there. :D

    He could have a disability. A couple companies like that up my way. They need the helmet in case of a seizure to avoid further brain damage.

    I landed the house next door to this guy and I'm going to be tacking the cammera with me when I mow this place. Just hoping to be there while hes mowing a some stage and i'll post some pics of this moreon.
    The guys neighbor said he has mowed that way for years and years and as far as she can tell he's just plan crazy:dizzy:

    pinnacle, you've just got to figure a way to start a conversation with this guy and work up to the point of asking about the Evil Knievel look.

    Yeh, I don't know mate.
    "I just noticed you out mowing and I was just wondering why you are wearing a helmet and knee pads" The whole time I would be trying not to start rolling around laughing. The guy would look funny even with out the "Evil Knievel look"
    But one day I might do it arfter i've seen it a few more times and the novelty has worn off. I imagin arfter seeing this guy a few more times I'll just think its plan sad.
