I wonder what it's like to survive the mower going over top of you.


I'd say it feels pretty good! :smilewink:

When I was growing up I used to help my great uncle with his mowing chores. (this is the same uncle that I helped build the lawncart with which I now have) He had an Ariens R.E.R. that I used to help him mow with. One day while we were mowing the barn yard around the outbuildings(the grass was probably 6-8 inches high) the old Ariens almost choked out and spit some big clumps out the back. Curious as to what had happened I got off and looked around. I had gone over a rabbit hole and the mower had actually sucked the babies out of the hole! Needless to say it was NOT a pretty scene.

I see snakes quite a lot when I mow the one lot I take care of. They always seem to avoid the 107 though, luckily for them.

I figure the snake made at least three mistakes
1- It startled me
2- was where I needed to mow
3- did not move when I came at it.
That last mistake makes me think it was sucidal. The muffler has fallen off the work 430 so I know it saw AND heard me comimg !
