I finally got the camper winterized and off our cement slab this Saturday, has sat there since Labor day weekend. As the leaves are just a falling around here we have been on clean up duty for a month or so now. Well guys my dear wife likes to mow the lawn and this time of year the Simplicity 7016 has the leaf vac and trailer on it, so off she goes, and usually does a good job:worshippy2:.

So anyway back to the story, I found this on the cement next to the camper this Saturday, had been strategically hidden with leaves since last weekend Saturday while I was over at her Moms house shingling the roof with fellow B-I-L's

I just happened to notice this on Saturday and she seen me do a double-take and then she busted out laughing. Says she went just a little too far and the front tires went over the edge of the slab. Then she could not get the deck shut down or raised up fast enough to stop the sparks show. I am afraid to see what that center blade looks like but they are all due for replacement next year any way. Oh well she still likes to help and I suppose I should keep her. (Kathy and the Simplicity for those of you about to ask)

Apart from the possible damage to the blade, that's pretty cool. Thanks for sharing.

Good story.
The Mrs, may just have done you a favour, and sharpened up those blades just fine.

The blade gouge is one thing but I would have liked to see her smoking the tires to make the posi burn off.
What do your tires look like?

Sounds like you need to add a little dirt in that area so it doesn't happen again. After all, you have a grader.

Thanks for the replies guys, I was hoping it would bring a chuckle or two, The UFO responses got me:smile1::worshippy2:. I will post some pictures of the blade and bolts when I take the deck off. May not be any leaves left on the trees after last nights wind so maybe just one more pickup, too dark to tell yet.

pchili4, We have an agreement, One tractor per Musical Instrument, (Hammered Dulcimer, 2 Mandolins, Fiddle, Guitar and Marimbula; see my signature) we are still even so no more for now.

wvbuuzzmaster, She will run anything except my chain saw and the tractor mounted snowblower. Also loves to fish, camp, hike, be outdoors, etc. see why I gotta keep her?

cp7, The tires are fine, good thing she dont like the chains on
though

Kenny, in the plans but real low on the funds priority list, you know, dirt is NOT dirt cheap anymore.:smile1:

I hear you on the cost of dirt. Thought maybe you might have a high spot somewhere you could peel a little off and transplant next to the concrete. Got an old 2X4 laying around? Put that down so the blades won't hit if she falls off into the abyss again.
Glad you have a helper like that. They are far a few between.
