    Was mowing one of my commercial places today and low and behold the mower picked up a 2" bolt and shot it right through the glass door :cry:. This is the same place that last year the mower pitched a rock through my own truck window. :dizzy:
    But.... it gets better....
    The owner is in a bad mood today, so when he finds out....
    he says don't worry about it, I'll take care of it :confused:
    I love mowing for this guy. Got 3 locations I mow for him.
    plus I gt all the apples, peaches, pears and plums I want to eat while I mow.

    I broke my first window in three years two weeks ago and of all things I did it with the weedeater. It picked up a rock and shattered a glass storm window of the business next door. Luckily they were very nice about it. Unlucky for my pocket book....$125 later it is now fixed.

    about a month ago I was mowing along a busy road and had my blades turned off as I waited for traffic to pass. Just as the last car drove past I turned on my blades a sec too soon and hurled a chunk of asphalt through a minivans side window. The driver was cool about it considering there was an empty booster seat covered in glass! Her insurance company didn't even send us a bill!

    Maybe the grass was tall enough that it covered up the 2 inch bolt !!
