Well, I was mowing with my homely red and black Bolens 900........

I was mowing near the ditch by the road that has a fairly steep slope.... I had It in low range while I was cutting. I finished mowing the first pass and then decided to put it back in high range to back up faster, well I forgot that I left it in high and without thinking shifted it into 3rd! I let my foot off the clutch and away I went. I quickly slammed the clutch petal down and thank goodness I just put new brake pads on and it stopped on a dime.:yelclap:
Could have been a lot worse.... LOL
