Lawn Mowing Close Call - Caught on Video

Lawn Mower Troubles

What started out as a normal day ended up in three very close calls. For some reason, I happened to have the Go-Pro strapped right to my chest. The day began normal, in fact, it was better than normal.  It was 8:00 in the morning. The sun was shining and it was dry out. Being from Minnesota, not a single one of you guys pick on me about my accent, but I think I’m going to lay it out a little thick for you know don't you know? We’re going to do a little bit of a trailer set up here, and we're going to show you what we’ve got, but we only got about a half a day of mowing that we can get it in because we got a few thunder boomers that are coming our way. Weed eater here. We like to trim up around the trees with those there and then we got two fifty inch Grandstand.  Those are kind of like the Drag cars of lawn mowers, so they’re really fun to use. We can take them on the steep slopes with no problems.

Thunder Boomers Don't Ya Know

I think we're going to be mowing 45 homes. Today is going to be a fun day. The thunder boomers come in  around noon, but it should in aroundday. We decided to mow first because we had rain coming our way and a steep hill which ends at the bottom of a pond. We decided to mow that hill before the rains visit us at noon because the grass would be wet and slick. We both started on opposite sides of the pond and were mowing back and forth.Then unbeknownst to me, Jake's mower took a nose dive and slid all the way down. It stopped right before it went into the pond, and about 30 seconds later my mower did the exact same thing.  It took a nose dive and slid all the way down. You can see that I had the Go-Pro on camera.

Fertilizer

What we didn't realize happened, was the fertilizer company came through earlier.  I don't know what chemical they applied, but it was like an oil slick. Literally, it would not dry and it looks like Teflon coating the wheels of our mowers.
