Yeah, mother has wanted me to cut that old oak up since we move here.
I just hate to cut up anything that's still living and it's still hanging on after
probably close to my age. I've got a couple of big oaks that are over 100 and
three Hickory's that are well over 100.

Funny you should mention that Don. The first day I got the mower I was so
in love with the speed (11mph) that I was running it round the front yard and
ran under a big old pine. Never even though about the ROP and when it hit the
lower branch we did a wheelie just like you described, 'bout 45deg before the
branch let go. Been running it with the bar tilted back 90deg since. Which......
does cause some worry when I'm mowing up hill or in the ditch. Yeah, yeah....
I know, the manual says not to mow up hill but across or down. This thing
is 1300 lbs but I'll bet most of that is in the rear, at least it looks like it.
So I'm spending some of my recoup time....reading that thar manual.
Did you have the ladder truck extended flying a big old American flag
over the weekend????

Yes Denny, The flag is is up every day!
Don't know what this Dixie Chopper weighs and I have to mow the road ditch also.
Thinking about getting a cheap push mower for the steep spots there.

Denny, sounds like you had a very close call. Glad you made it and hope you get better quick. You know, you might want to go see the Doctor just to be on the safe side. Doctors visits are a lot cheaper than ambulance rides or funerals. Otherwise, stay safe and take it easy for awhile.
