    Today while out mowing I was driving down the road in the left lane when a car that was stopped in the right lane decided to make a u turn just as I was passing her. She plowed into the side of my trailer and her car was trashed. My mower was OK I had the fastraps on and it did not move. My blower got a strap broke and the backplate and my trimmer broke the trigger and my edger seems all screwed up when it idles it is about at half throttle. My trailer is bent all to crap I had to have it towed on a rollback and my friend is letting me borrow a trailer till I can get something figured out. I am waiting on her insurance adjuster to come out and assess the damage hope they replace all my crap.

    ouugh, that sucks. The car is totaled compared to the trailer. people think they can just drive how ever they want. I bet she didnt even use her blinker for that illegal uturn.
    Hope your stuff gets replaced.

    Damn your trailer OWNED HER CAR!!! But yea sorry to hear that... Good to hear that your mower was tied down. Hey maybe you will get some new equipment out of it though. Did it mess up the bumper on your truck or the receiver? That hitch is bent as crap!

    The bumper was already bent, it looks like it may have bent it a little more than it was but the receiver for the hitch was bent all to crap but the hitch is still good my friend brought me a trailer and a receiver and I hooked back up and finished my day. The axle on the trailer is bent to sxxt

    Stupid B!7@h

    What if that was a small car with a Mom and her Kids instead of your trailer?
