    Last week after talking to the kid we sold our old walk behind to, he told me a story about the first lawn he mowed with it. He was mowing the front yard and a guy across the street was trimming a tree and he was way up in the tree. A truck is coming down the road right under where he's trimming, and you guessed it...THE LIMB FELL ON THE TRUCK!!! The kid told me that the guy in the truck got out, gave him a verbal threat, and then they got into a fist fight that was eventually broken up by the guys co-workers. Lucky that the limb hit the bed of the truck and not the front where the driver was sitting!

    Pure stupidity.
    Trimming trees over a road with no ground crew to stop traffic?
    Pure stupidity.

    Why didn't the co-workers watch what was going on? Why didn't HE watch what was happening?
    This sounds like a case of total inexperience and negligence, to me.

    Wow, that is scarry... I mean that the tree crew could possibly be that stupid...I wouldn't be surprised if they get hit with the suit they deserve... Being that stupid, should be against the law..LOL
