Just a few minutes ago, I was doing a simple thing to my John Deere 430, adjusting the kill solenoid, and I had my right foot between the front tractor wheel & the front left deck wheel. As I turned & lifted my foot to step back, my pants leg hung on the bolt on the deck wheel spindle. Caused me to lose my balance & start going over to the right. I knew it would snap my leg like a twig if I went down the direction I was headed (directly sideways), so I twisted just enough I got my knee bent so I saved my leg. Kind of twisted my knee a bit, but better than the alternative. The wheel spindle dug into, my leg a bit, and most likely will be getting pretty sore. Already burning & a little throb to it.
Where my foot was:
Lucky this was all it did besides putting a bit of twist on my knee...but the knee feels fine now.
