    Can you spot the mistakes?

    Found this pic posted on a site offering mower how to info for new owners. WOW! Hope I never need any further advice from these bozos!
    Can you spot the [at least] two huge errors in judgement/safety?

    How about jacking up a mower using the deck edge as a jacking point?

    I'm thinking jacking a mower up on any part of the deck is a bad idea.

    Only to lift but not work under. Hydraulics are known to leak down/fail. Especially these SCUTS.

    One day his DNA will be eliminated due to a stupid move like this, further preventing his DNA from spreading through out the populace.
