    so today i was mowing around, and out of no where the ground just gave way and sank, and boom the mower was stuck, had to yank it out with the truck. weird part was when i looked in the hole it seemed to go for like 10 more feet, not down, but across, like under the rest of the grass, seemed like something was digging underthe grass, and made it collapse with the weight of the mower.

    had the same thing happen to me in a customers back yard. Had to bring my ATV in on my trailer, through their gate in and pull my ZTR out with a tow strap. They say it used to be a POND.

    yeah i was lucky i was able to get the truck in no problem, so it was fast and easy to pull it out, but it still sucked.

    Lol, that's weird. Some kind of sink-hole, sometimes builders bury tree stumps. Then when they disintagrate it leaves a void in the ground. Add some weight to the top of it and presto u have a mower in a hole. Not sure if this is what happened, but just a theory. Hope the customer wasn't home, that would have been pretty embarrassing pulling you're mower out of a hole while the customer watches.
