    650BD6ED-EB64-4806-87EF-974527EACE8C.jpeg Yup. They’ll hurt you in a blink. This is my left thigh 10 years after flipping a mower into a pond. Many other internal injuries but this leg thing was BAD. Don’t be that guy.

    You can see the ROPS is folded down on that mower.

    I was going to mention that, I feel really bad for that guy. But what was he thinking that's a very steep slope.

    People take to many risks. If I was cutting near a pond edge or whatever the case, the rops would be up. Fortunately for me, I don't have any areas that I have to put my mower that would be even sketchy at best.
