Earlier this week I received a call to go recover a riding lawnmower in the north part of Santa Rosa. I headed up that way and was advised by dispatch that the company that had called me, mentioned that i would have to go about an 1/8 of a mile off the road to the lake to get this lawn mower. Well, the reason this was necessary is that the lawnmower had driven/slipped into the lake up there and was not easily accessible. They wanted to know if I could bring about a 150 feet of 'cable". Well, two of the Yarbrough Bros Towing Wreckers have just about that much. When I arrived, the foreman directed me to drive up onto a path (paved) and follow it out to the lake. Sure enough, there was the lawnmower with all four wheels submerged and only the hand controls visible. After getting my rubber boots and coveralls on, I went a fishing into the lake, secured the mower with a nylon strap (basket around the axle to terminate connection) and hoofed it back to my Tow Truck. It was hard to see over the hill and down the embankment to the lake, so the foreman and I had hand signals to communicate the recovery. Out came the mower, and after some drying off and a jump start or too, the thing actually started. Pretty fun recovery for one of our good landscape accounts in Santa Rosa. Towing never fails to surprise me. It seems that every day can bring something new.
