    So I'm doing the last bit of trimming near a foundation, when I see this snake headed right for me. WTF? I thought they ran (slither) away from noise or vibration? I hate snakes, though I know certain ones are beneficial. I somehow summon the courage to stand my ground, and tilt the trimmer dead center into him at full slither. The 'splat' luckily missed me. Do you guys come across them often?

    I do all the time, but never killed one. I don't like snakes either, just get out of their way.

    I'll let them go if they are non-venomous. But lately with all the rain we have had here, we have killed a couple of copper heads and a cottonmouth.

    If you were trimming infront of me on my mower, I would have ran you over, backed over you again, then just kept going on my way. Your a rookie.

    I wouldn't mind tilting the trimmer but what if it has some kind of disease and it splattes all over you? I wouldn't like it. Grab a rock and hit it hard..
