    Didn't turn out too bad. It fucking hoofed along, especially with the drive engaged.

    Not sure I could get the weight down low enough for the lawn tractor.
    He was very popular among the 5th/6th year girls. This was the Summer of '76 in Cornwall. The school had removed some old cricket nets the previous Winter, but there were bits of the old 2x2 angle iron frames still embedded in the ground that stuck up an inch or two. One lunch time the girls are sitting along the side of the sports field when along comes their intrepid hero on the mower.. right up until the blade below the cutters hit a piece of angle iron & the mower stopped, instantly. The bit he sat on was basically a seat on a stick on top of the roller with a tow bar doodad & he steered it like a bike with handlebars. When it stopped he went over the bars into the grassbox, guys falling about laughing, girls all running over to administer sympathy.
