    Everybody makes mistakes. At least you learned from it! Any damage to your mowers in the ordeal?

    the first time I drove my mower onto my new trailer I did the same thing. the front end shot up in the air so I put the mower in reverse backed up and the trailer landed with a crash. You gotta learn some where:)

    That probly didn't make a very good first impression. But a few months ago, I had to take a persons exmark Z mower doohickey and wash it, then when I went to take it off my trailer, the hitch came off, I see the van vanish in a hurry. And the tailgate of my trailer came off, so I was ready to scream, because I was all by my self, and this gate weighed about 250 lbs, and I couldn't get it back on.

    I learned to be sure to hook up my trailer before loading in the same way. I was loading my Craftsman rider when all of a sudden the front end of that trailer went up like a super-charged span on a draw bridge. I slammed the transmission into a forward gear, and boy what a loud sound the trailer hitch made when it came to rest on the ball. I will never do that again(I hope) as long as I am not rushing. We must take our time and think about what we are about to do, what we are doing or what we have done to be safe out there.:hammerhead:
