OK, I don't know if any of you guys have experienced this. Now that the northeast is drying out and the ground is hard as rock, my walker is bouncing over every root in sight. Today I hit one that sent me flying out of my seat. The short lived flight was ended in horrible pain. How many of you guys have landed on your, um, boys. This happens several times a week. The only way to avoid this is slowing down to a crawl. I wish there was some suspension on the wheels of the mower. Oh well, just venting. Today's experience was not the way I wanted to end the day of cutting. Has anyone found a way to solve this. I can't raise my weight off the seat to much as the blade safety switch shuts off. Airing down the tires helps a little, but then it tears up the lawns more. Please help. Thanks in advance.
