    Don't feel too bad, I did the same thing with my grapple. In a rush to hook up and move a pile of brush to burn, I forgot to lower the lock levers. Stayed on until I went to dump the load.....grapple and all! Thank goodness my hydraulic lines were long, otherwise it likely would have snatched them off the tractor!

    Yup. Same here. No spectators though - does the internet forum adage "Without pics it never happened" apply?

    A lot easier and cleaner to get those back than when we clean stalls, I forget to latch the QA bucket after changing attachments and dump stuff in the dumpster. In goes the bucket along with manure and old shavings. You would think you would learn the first time but does not seem to happen.

    The bad thing I did was this was in front of my wife and she had a field day with it and she might have even posted it on face book. I will get my revenge and have now a plan in the works. I was trying to make her happy about cleaning out all the wood piles but then again she is Auburn fan and I am a Alabama fan so we are at war 24/7 365 days a year.
    Trust me I will win this battle.

    Reminds me of the day after pulling a rock that i burried my drawbar when backfilling the hole! Stuff happens, but good that it was harmless, bad that someone saw!
