    Springtime in michigan has been rainy the last few weeks so i got my mower stuck then i got my truck stuck trying to go get it. Good thing the owner used to be my supervisor for 4 years. Lets laugh at my misfortune.

    LOL that is awesome! No I haven't gotten my mower stuck yet this year but I'm in OH so I'm getting just as much rain as you. I use my walkbehind mostly so that's a lot harder to get stuck. I just have to say LOL one more time that is so awesome dude!

    Did it twice last week, keeping tow straps, come alongs, a couple sheets of plywood and a low profile jack in the truck for the rest of this monsoon season just in case it happens again....

    Old supervisor knew the second tow guy so he cut us a good discount at $80. The other company wanted $350 for a medium duty truck. So i lost $80 and gained a six pack for my troubles.
