Southern, I came up on the drop gate at an angle. Got to the top and hit the left lever a little hard and the left wheel slung the gate off. So, the mower has three wheels on the trailer and one hanging off. Used a ratchet strap to bring the front back down and was then able maneuver it back on. Never have driven one before. Gonna cut my dad's yard because it's big and off the road a little ways so no one can point and laugh at me.
