Best Lawnmower Load Up Fail
It’s the simple pleasures in life, you know? There’s things that give us such pleasure and tickle our funny bones in just the right spot. Things like this guy trying to load up his riding lawnmower. He has the right idea, it just seems his weight class is a bit mismatched. Should not be too hard, just line the tires up, give it some gas, and up she goes, into the bed of the truck. I’m sure you have seen this played out a thousand times before.
If you have tailgate ramps of your own, you have probably even loaded up your own lawn mower a time or two. However, I bet you never ended up like this poor fellow. It seems that a lesson in basic physics, or even weight distribution, are in order here. However, and I am sure you will agree, I am glad this guy missed those days of school. What we have here is pure internet gold. If this had a name it would be “overconfident.”
See how this guy roles his lawnmower halfway up the ramps, then immediately begins to go into what I call the wheelie of death. What is that you ask? Well, simply put it is when you have too much weight on the back end of something that has four wheels, and you are trying to load that something with four wheels onto something else by using an incline. There is no recovering from the wheelie of death as evidenced here. The funniest part is the fact that they rewind it to show him upright again, only to topple to his doom for a second time.
It is during the second replay that I noticed his leg kicking a bit, trying to get free of the lawn tractor. You forget how heavy those riding lawn mowers can be. It is like pushi
The Lawnmower Mishap That Keeps Giving
It is during the second replay that I noticed his leg kicking a bit, trying to get free of the lawn tractor. You forget how heavy those riding lawn mowers can be. It is like pushing a baby elephant off of you when you get pinned underneath. And you know you have been pinned underneath one before. Every one of us have made a horrible riding lawnmower call once or twice in our lifetime.
We Have All Been This Guy Before
We decided, “Yeah, I can cut that steep hill with no problem”, or “I bet I could cut that grade sideways and be fine.” At the time those thoughts seem like really good ideas. However, once we end up pinned under our own metal baby elephant, we begin to second guess those decisions. All of that to say, I feel this guys pain. So do you. We have all been there a time or two in our lives; we just don’t have evidence on film to prove it. Why he does, I don’t know. I would have erased it quicker than a gold medal Olympic sprinter. Michael Johnson would be scared in that race for sure! But he does have it on tape, and we are thankful for the show. The ending says it all. It also probably shows what he should have been doing to begin with… pushing the lawnmower up the ramp, into the bed of the pickup truck. Not only is that a much safer method, it’s also more efficient. You only have to exert force once, and any man points you lose by pushing the lawn mower into the truck are much less than the man points you lose when you end up underneath your riding lawnmower! Even more, man points you lose by ending up underneath your lawn tractor are less than the man points you lose by ending up underneath your lawn tractor on film. This guy will be climbing out of the man hole he created for quite some time. I guess it’s true what they say, sometimes slow and steady really does win the race. In this case, at least it wins the lawn mower load up. If you’re going to try this yourself, I recommend you have your buddy sit on the front of your lawn tractor to keep you from ending up like this poor fellow. If you do, just make sure you don’t have it on film.
