    I say the thread earlier about "hate to move things before you mow" but what if you can't see them?


    I have runover: hoses, chains, barbed wire, haystring, tools, silverware, a 2x4, golf balls, tennis balls, baseballs, beer cans, and a bunch of others stuff im sure.....

    Had a worker once who ran over a dead rat with a 21'' mower. The smell was so bad he threw up right there on the clients lawn. Once I found out why he tossed his cookies I laughed my azz off for half an hour.
