    Been there, done that! And I hate it when that happens.

    This goes along with “where’s that vertical I was experimenting with last autaum” when doing the spring clean up! And it probably hurts the lawn mower too!!!

    Anthony your post had me laughing way too hard! I work for an outdoor power equipment dealer and for several years was their pickup and delivery driver for the service department. I can’t count the times I went out to pick up a riding mower for repair due to “the blades just locked up”,and found that the customer had run over clothesline,dog chain,barbed wire or other item that had wrapped around the blades and brought the whole shebang to a grinding halt! Of course their response was always the same…”no way that can be….I don’t have any of that stuff in my yard!”

    I will say I’ve never seem any antenna parts wrapped up in a mower though! Good post!

    And Bruce,you are right,it does damage the mower,sometimes only hurting the blade. Sometimes causing more serious(and expensive)damage.
