Wondering if anyone has any photos or videos of lawnmowers doing some water forging. From what I have seen that as long as your air intake is above the water line than your mower will run and shoot out bubbles of the muffler.

thats pretty deep man! the other day i took my tractor out (craftsman LT4000) out and took her out to the pond and the water went up to the bottom of the carb bowl! i was a bit scared cause the air intake is about an inch higher than the bowl Razz il be sure to get a pic/ vid next time!

i took an old shitty mower through a pond last spring, the water was 3-4 feet deep, the intake was 2 1/2 - 3 feet off the ground i coulda swore i broke something when it stopped but i didnt, i had to get another tractor to pull it out but all i had to do was pull the plug and spin all the water out, i dont know how i didnt get any water in the gas because it sat under water for probably 15 minutes while i went to get the other tractor

id say lol i had to take the liners outta my boots my socks off and pull my pants up as high as i could to walk out because it was almost 3 feet right there and like 15 to either side of the pond
and this was a pond of water from the snow so it was VERY cold

I dont mind getting muddy- getting wet is another deal entirely . When i had my agway out for the last time back north last summer - the water was just over the footrests - the problem was the 4" of soft muck soil under the 11/2' to 2 ' of water and stock tires - and lots of snakes n snapping turtles in that swamp - needless to say i didnt feel like getting bit by one tromping thru water getting the tractor out if it got stuck. Bad enough i got zapped with poison ivy that time- i hate that crap.

I was tempted to go on the other side of the road where a drainage ditch had like a good 3' of water - but settled for the swamp instead.
