    Yes. The clamp is to override the safety bar.

    I’ve spoken to the nannies about this a few times and the problem persists. You can’t see the small plastic toys strewn everywhere.

    just don't mow it until they finally realize they need to move the toys so you can mow. once the grass is a foot tall they will not want to play with their toys back there.

    Do you ever see the homeowners, or can contact them somehow?

    In our service contracts, it says lawn must be free of toys, garden hoses, etc otherwise we wont mow and they will be charged normal price. Looks like you need a clause in yours as well!

    My question is why are you mowing my kids/grandkids ? Seriously, trampoline, small pond, large garden, batting cage, pitching machine, fire pit, sand box, blue berry bushes, snowboard ramp, kiddie pool, and innumerable small and odd objects, from socks to barbies, hotwheels , ball bats, etc... for free I might add.

    You forgot a putting green with hundreds of plastic golf balls. Ah hell just get your big mower up there and push everything in the natural areas and mow!

    I do that with my stander and trampolines-2 properties across the street from each other, both with a tramp in the backyard.

    I hook the front wheel on the metal legs and slide 'em out of the way, it keeps the lawn in better shape, too, by moving them around.

    PITA, but really doesn't take very long to "resituate" them.

    No putting green, I did forget the pitch-back and the bicycles, I have found a couple baseballs though. I have found golf balls at various places, can be quite exciting!
