    I'd hate to be the operator if the Deere got that dirty!

    I was the opperator, believe me, I had red fluro shirt, yellow/green fluro raincoat top, lots of colour.....and I was covered in this muck, strong cold winds, freezing, pizzing down rain, not fun.....and I have to finish job in the morning!

    lots of mud tomorrow as well.....never a dull moment lol.

    then the big cleanup.....crap everywhere, glad I don't usually do wet weather work!

    bloody cyclone is dumping crap weather on us.....

    ha ha guys, believe me....I was just as covered! at the time it didn't bother me, trying to see through the rain, something weirdly different, but had to be done. mower was working hard, wet grass is so heavy, never mowed in the wet before, thought the mower was very gutless, then thought, well deeres massive blades plus wet grass spraying out clippings and water, looked good, but was probably why it was working extra hard. hopefully lol.

    hopefully today will be a bit better....hopefully!

    Tony I don't want to cause any waves but, could you have done that if you still had the rear discharge?
