    Heres a story for you guys! I am mowing the other day at a customer of mine that has a steep hill so i usually do it with the 48" wb scag well as i am going across the hill the mower start smoking and the motor starts pounding hard so i shut it off let it sit for a minute and try to start it again! when i started it again I heard a loud bang and it shut off. Long story short it blew a 3" hole out of the bottom end of the mower motor.
    The hill is to steep for me to push it up myself so i go home and get my honda 3 wheeler atc onto the trailer and go back to try and pull it up the hill.
    it was moving fine then all of the sudden the trike popped a wheelie and flipped on top of me. I was ok but the bike was a little messed up. I decided to forget the trike idea instead i took apart there chain link fence at the end of the hill pushed mower underneath onto the road behind them and got it with my truck. why didnt i think of that in the first place you ask? I have no idea just wasnt thinking.

    I know this is a long story and i am not to good at typing so i hope it make sense, i just thought some people might get a laugh out of my pain and stupidity. I ended up buying a 48" Yazoo mower to tie me over just until i get a new motor for my scag walk behind.
