I wouldn't say nothing good came out of it... tractor crashes (as long as no serious injuries) are pretty entertaining... entertaining=good. I just wish we had half of our crashes on tape haha!

I see you need work on your roll over technique. Thanks to countless rollovers on ours, we have a way of doing it somewhat painless. Keep both arms on steering wheel, straight out, as you roll onto your back, you can guide the tractor to the side, while pulling your leg out.

I did get injured last time I rolled, but that was due to not wearing long pants, and leg got burned on exhaust pipe.

glad your not hurt! those MTD spindels are 5/8" wile other mowers have 3/4" ones, so if you find another mower you probly swap in the front end into your MTD without much trouble and you can find more wheels for it.

Bahahaha, you guys... Yeah im not exactly a pro when it comes to this. it was my first time ad just happened to be on film. Happens so quick that the moment i realized it was going bad was when i had the engine coming towards me. im very lucky i didnt roll it on the other side, i coulda smashed the carb and air filter.

The airfilter/carb/manifold took most of the impact when I flipped mine. I couldnt see any damage to the carb/manifold. I was actually surprised it was cracked or something.

Just keep in mind that technique might not work as well with some of the narrower fella's out there. If yer tractor out weighs ya 3 or 4 to one, you may do better just jumping off and pick up the tractor later. Easier to weld up a frame or hood than to weld up an arm or rib.

Haha, that's what I was thinking!  bounce  I can easily lift my tractor and this sounds like a great technique if it was set up right. However, there's balance and speed to contend with and a loop-out never goes the same way twice. I'd actually try it on purpose, but not on accident. With my luck, I'd find the only sharp rock in the area with my kidney.  Rolling Eyes Cool

I sooner would've put them behind the mesh in your hood.  Then they won't snap off or get snagged by things as easily.

Looking good! Hey, if you don't mind, can you chime-in on my LED thread in the Electrical section if you learn anything from using the rear LEDs you won? Pics and maybe a comment how they work?  Very Happy

Heres a few things related to the thread:
I won a giveaway on a facebook mower group (Norman Ferguson is a very generous man hes mtd2fast4u here) and got two led lights. Both lights have 4 leds in them and are very bright! very very happy with these, water resistant, adjustable mounts, bright, and will work perfect for my application!
