    This thread again, huh? Well, my record is still the same as it was last time I commented on this subject matter: Ran over a pile of people fecal with the mower once at a care home... Toilet paper and all. Seriously was about to throw up just from the smell as everything was circulating through the Accelerator catcher.

    Two bad ones for me...first the cell phone was chopped up by the mower back in '07 my first year and second was last month- backed over a newspaper with my Hustler that had just been thrown out. Ughhh paper shreds EVERYWHERE- took 20 minutes to pick up!!

    I've been there a few times. Horrible feeling. I also hit a wad of $$$ years ago I never saw. I salvaged about $300 and I still have about another $150 in pieces not complete enough to exchange. Steel cable trashed a belt and the most destructive was I sucked up a 6" rock and bent the heck out of the top deck plate. Had to sell that machine it never cut the same again.

    Earlier this summer the trimmer found a dog turd and gave a new meaning to the word ****faced and a couple weeks ago mowed over a groundbee nest and 1 found its way behind my glasses and gave a sting.
