    I think it is from a timing belt. I am lucky I was blowing my grass away from the road! Because my mower chucked this thin about 150'

    I would think the blade would have to be tore up or the blade bar mangled!

    It was my new mower and you are not gona beleive it but other then a little nick in the blade, No damage! This thing is a tank! If I had hit that with my ExMark I think it would have shattered the spindel. When I sharpen my blades tommarow or friday I will get a pic.

    Oh yea, I was like "WHAT THE **** WAS THAT!?" Then when I saw it flying in the air I crossed my fingers and was like "Please god don't let the hit anything or any body"

    reason: language

    I'd hate to hear the sound it made when you hit that thing. When I hit a thick branch in someones yard I am like "DAMN IT". I hate hitting anything but grass with the mower. I do go over twigs and stuff though. I'm going to get the blade sharpened on the mower that I use to do the other yards with. The blade on the mower that I use to do my yard with is nice and sharp. The only thing I hit with it is grass and little tiny pine cones in my yard.
