    " If ya get close enough with the mower you wont have to do any trimming" Looks like quite a little time consuming repair. Oh well......charge accordingly!

    I remember someone posting on here about a manufacturer that would warranty "no matter what"! This would be a good test for that warranty.

    What was that light doing in the turf? The bed is only inches away. Wait, that light looks familiar. I swear it wasn't me.

    600 pound mowers don't stop fast in 5th gear.

    600 pounds ? last I checked one of mine was about 1400 pounds.

    I have zero patience for stuff like that... landscaper knocked over our lights and I got called back.... I billed the client and told them take it up with the landscaper.

    Yeah, 600 pounds. 48" Walk-behind with a sulky. I'm way too hyper for sitting.

    Do you put stakes or transformers with raised fixtures in the turf?? Probably not, either you put it in the bed, or use a well light. Right?

    with all that goo coming out the bottom I am thinking that is a trans on the bottom, or some remote device. that ain't no simple LV spot. yeah, most commercial ztrs weigh in around 1200-1400lbs for a rider.

    Looks like a 220V flag pole light. In that case, it would be in the lawn.

    That was more than just a bump. Somebody drove over it.
