    well people my first mowing day started out great. I woke up about 5:00, was at my first account at 6:20. I was throwing out work, just flying; hav'en a great day. Then 5:00 Pm comes up. I pull up to a common ground that is newly built and kind of messy and tall. Major water and hill hazards, lets just say my corn hole was puckered for the entire first hour. I get most all of the hard stuff out of the way and come flying threw my next faze, full speed I dropped rite into a mud hole. Chopper has 7 hours on it.... yeah. Mud is all over it, I had to call my bro for a toe out.

    great way to start the season :eek:

    That stinks. Hope you got it out ok. Be careful not to put undue stress on the frame winching out. Bending the frame would suck. Anyhow, I feel ya. I got my JD 757 stuck with less than 10 hours on it and had to dig my way out and use an old board. That was a wasted half hour. Thankfully, I cut that account loose 3 cuts later. Hope you get more $$ than normal for that job with all the hazards (gotta figure in the PITA factor on those!).

    I would look at it in a different way, at least it happened at the end of the day and not at the beginning of the day

    the real question here is how many people saw this little maneuver?

    It may not have been funny for you, but because of your thread some of us got laughs out of it.
    Sorry for the bad luck
