    I was just mowing along the other day and I happened to wack this thing, it was in the middle of my backyard, lucky for me it didn't end up through the window, but it did take a nice chunk out of my brand new set of gator blades :cry: Anyways, I was wondering if anyone could identify this thing, I am about certain it didn't come off of my TT, but if it did I would like to know where it came from.... Let me know.

    Damned if I know. Cost a bunch though, huh? Brand new Gators? Wow, that sucks.

    Do you have any 4 wheelers? Or other play or work toys. Looks like a brace off of something else.

    off the handle, perhaps. Maybe a cable attached through the hole...just guessing. It would take more than that to seriously damage a gator blade. That part doesn't look like its been hit too hard....

    Its good to know I'm not the only one whos posted a sock and toe shot along with my picture:p lol.

    If I had to guess, maybe a belt guide off the deck of a homeowner lawn tractor.

    Looks like part of a latch to a gate or something?

    No doubt, that is the same latch on my faters gate. If he didn't live in another city I would take a picture.

    I hit a hammer yesterday. I knew right away what it was, though. :realmad:
