    Crusing on the Wright Stander as fast as it will go. All of the sudden the mower stops but my fat a$$ didn't. I went right over the top and landed in front of the mower on my shoulder and head. :dizzy: Got up and shook it off and looked around and saw what I hit. It was a water meter box. I'll paint that one bright yellow next week so no one else hits it. Total damage bruised shoulder, arm, hip and shins.

    It's a bummer when you need to ware a helmet when cutting grass, Hope the deck is alright and happy you are.

    I also ran one over last year with a super z. It was a roud 1 about 12" in dia. I knew it was there but had a brain fart and ran it over. Cut it off and discharged it 25 feet across the driveway. Glad no one was standing there. It weighed about 10 lbs.

    I've done that on a wb with jungle wheels. I was in 5th gear too. To make it worse, I was mowing the convenience store in front of the mower shop I use and a lot of the guys saw it.

    The first thing that I would of did instead of looking at what I hit would have been to see if any body saw it. And my luck there would have been people all over rolling on the ground.............but thats my luck. ;)

    I'm suprised no one saw it since we were doing a 90 unit townhouse complex.
