...from a fiery death. Last night our Fire Dept. was paged out for a semi/box trailer fully involved in fire. Upon arrival we did find a semi tractor really burning. We got the tractor out with the aid of foam. The trailer was opened by our memebers as we fought the tractor...smoke inside of it also. Inside we found about 40 MTD variants...all palleted,shrink wrapped enroute to Texas. 17.5 HP,42" cut with a FREE yard cart. We found out it was only heat at the front of the trailer melted some of the shrink wrap. So there you go.....more MTD's to the BIG BOX stores....saved of an early death,only to all be dead within a few short years anyway. Will try to get some pics scanned and post. ken

Part of our fire department motto refers to "not risking our lives for something that is already lost". So the question remains. What were you thinking :D:D;)? Now...if it had been a trailer full of Simplicities...and you had done what you'd done, that would of been more understandable:D:D;) I'm hoping that through it all....no one got hurt. Gord
