    Newspapers are usually easy to see unless they are printed on green paper (or tan paper during drought). What are you looking at when you run over these papers?

    Hit a big (suday atl journal const) paper last year right in the middle of the driveway and knew it was there...I got confused on the controls and panicked when I seen it....took 30 min. to clean it up.

    Of course I have. Many times over the years. I do a rental property and nuke stuff all the time. If they can't clean up after themselves, I'm damn well not gonna. Have you ever hit a paper with a snow thrower? :realmad:

    yes they are. I hit one this year thought i was far enough away but the lesco sucked it right up fing hi lifts. I hit my helper last winter with one in the back of the head wile snow blowing. That was the funniest thing i ever saw. I try to hit my trimmer guy with racket balls and tennis balls ten time this year so far
