    D130 Rollover

    I bought Momma a new D130 yesterday. She doesn't like the close yards mowed with the 1025R and I don't like her in the heat with the Honda push mower.

    Filled it up, checked the fluids, started it up. Cruised around, then I took the 1/2 mile drive to the mailbox. Thought I'd try it out in the fields...

    Front hit a high rock, back fell in a hole. Flipped me 5' down the hill and I rolled another 10'. Ran back up the hill to right the mower.

    I had in my mind that the lawn tractors would be more stable than my 1025. Not true. I'm looking hard at the new 2 series for the larger tire size. Those smaller tires on the D130 found a hole I hadn't had a problem with.

    Could have been much worse, and I deserved what I got. I got too cocky and thought I knew too much to get in trouble.

    Damage so far:

    Grille cracked.
    Left front light bulb broken
    Clips holding light on hood broken
    Clips on grill holding light broken
    fuel pump broken and replaced ($25)

    If my back didn't hurt so much my ankle would be killing me. I'm no spring chicken, just a dummy sometimes.

    Replaced the fuel pump and after some rough running seems to have tamed down.

    I now have 15 minutes of ride time. And Momma was soooo impressed. Deserved that too.

    Sorry to hear. Glad you're ok. It's a good reminder to all of us that we have to be careful with our machines.

    Glad you are mostly OK - and glad that you shared your story. I proves that it can happen anytime at anyplace regardless of the machine.

    That is the main reason I upgraded from my 2210 (predecessor to the 1-series) to my present 2520 - tire size. Makes a huge difference on hillsides both on the lawn and in the woods.

    Glad you are OK, Fred.

    The most painful part of that for me would be telling Mama that I wrecked her new tractor.
