    Default Boy did I Just do a Stupid Thing!

    Pulled tractor into garage without lowering the ROPS. Wife said the whole house shook. Tore out the eave and broke the faceplate on the front of the garage. Nice!

    Todd,
    Must be a Virginia thing! I do the same last year.

    Then I topped it by (a later date)forgetting I had a locked cable connecting the Polarus UTV and the JD. I jumped on the JD and pulled out at which point I heard a loud bang as I pulled the Polarus through the wall!(now not then!)

    My BX24 lives in the garage seen in my avatar... I usually back in, and since I'm looking behind me, hopefully I see the ROPS up. I've had a couple of near misses... just stopped in time.
    Thanks for sharing... a wake up call for many of us.
    I hope to put up a small barn/big shed about 12 x 20 for my toys this summer.

    Cartod, I see the ground is wet and if it was raining I guess you would be in a hurry to get inside. Easy thing to do mate. I'm lucky, I don't have to fold mine.
    With a CK30 you have the whole world in your hands.
