    The worst thing to hit is Dog Poo that is sitting right next to a wall or fence - Now I challenge anyone to trim the grass along the wall or fence with a whipper snipper (weed eater, or whatever you yanks call it) without spraying fresh dog poo around!

    Just a thought!

    Baseballs area always fun, you peel them right open, while out mowing with my new Toro G.S the last thing a dove saw was my deck...talk about a poof of feathers. and a T post with my brushcat is prolly the funniest....cut that thing in 3 pieces. told the boss the next day and all he said was cool.

    When we are mowing around bulkheads, my wife does it with a 22" push mower so
    i don't get over the edge with the ztr LOL..
    Well she went over the edge with the push, hit the bolthead that ties the bulkhead
    together and bent the blade u shapped, bent the crank also, so junk mower LOL..
    Garden hoses, golf balls, u name it..

    When i do brush hog jobs i allways ask the people, anything out in the field, allways
    the same answer NAH...
    Rebar, washers & dryers, water tanks, septic lids, car parts etc..
    Usually see the bigger stuff in time, if its real high, i just back thru to keep from
    running the tractor up on something..

    Every days a challenge isn't it ???

    The absolutely worst thing I ever hit was a loaded diaper. Didn't see it and BAMB. Poo everywhere. Worst part was it was wrapped around the spindles. I had to get doctor gloves with leather gloves over just to be safe. I WAS PISSED!!!!! Customer was IMMEDIATELY FIRED!!!! I love kids, but why do they have to sh*t. Actually, the kid wasn't the problem, the parents were. Hopefully no one ever has to deal with poopy diapers, unless their your own kids of course.:cry::cry:

    It was on my walker. I have shreded newpapers to pieces with this mower, but a poopy diaper brought the blades to a grinding halt. At least it never tangled with the internal blower.
