wasn't a fun experiance. I was mowing on a hill and the tires slipped, I threw both control arms into full forward. Nope, didn't work, I ended up rolling it 7 times, tearing the frame cover off, bending both control arms, and knocking the stuffings out of myself.

Best part: I'm fine, 500 lbs rolled over me and I'm unscathed save for some shaky nerves

Second best part: Hammer and crowbar, ductape, mower is back to working shape .


Those Toros are TOUGH!

Yes, I am. I nearly sharted when I was looking around thinking ruh roh.

Praise the lord those control arms are made of sturdy stuff.

they formed a semi-cage around my body and absorbed the energy of the roll...I was 'tucked in' to the mower.

IIRC It was a toro 62" Z-master ZTR. One of our newest ones.
