Almost done for the day on my way to the last property and a lady pulls up beside me at a red light and all I heard was your trailer gate is down. I tell my helper to jump out and put it up ....he comes back and says its gone. We turn around and about 2 miles back off in the grass is the gate to my trailer. Apparently my helper forgot to put it up and it dragged the road for about 1/2 mile before it slid off the hinges. We never heard it dragging.....my 36" exmark was within inches of falling off the trailer when the woman stopped and told us. The gate was ok not warped or anything and we both learned a lesson that didnt cost me anything and luckily no one was hurt.
