    I just want to see things all you lco's have hit with your equipment over the years. This is my list. a mouse, lots of rocks, a dead rat, at least 15 frogs or toads, and last year I gave a rabbit a hair cut with a string trimmer:laugh:

    The newspaper was not cool at all...... Talk about a mess!

    And dead squirrles stink when you chop them apart and spray them out the discharge!

    Let's see. many things.

    Rocks, Curbs, paper, Baseballs,

    Best one was a small little round meter that stuck out of the ground from a square box. Electric parts went everwhere.

    Hit this water pipe sheared it right off below the flange, the diesel had enough torque to open the ACS chute and still chunked it across the street. I am sure this hit did shorten the life of the main mule belt it broke the next day. Had it been a shaft drive deck or less than 1/4" thick deck. lord knows what would have happen.

    That would have been a sight to see. I have shot out baseballs about 100 feet before. Now, that was awesome.
