          Please explain what kind of curb you are talking about, and what piece of equipment you are using, the curiosity is killing me.

          If it's a tractor you are using, I can see the problem - but not for a mower much smaller.


          Can you pass over your clients neighbors lawn?





          ****************-


          If you are just starting out with a tractor and have not thought of a way to get onto the lawn - the curb is best. Trust that your machine will climb the curb with the right amount of speed and control. Getting down from a curb is extremely simple, you must go slow so that the curb is always gripped as you make your way onto the road.

            If its a tractor or most zero turns you can use two 2x6 or 2x8 boards length wise as ramps or stack wood in front of the curb (like a step) to decrease the height it will spread it out and you probably won't get hung up with your deck

              Landscape timber laid against the curb, ease up and down the curb.

                I back my 60" ZTR with the left rear hitting the curb. I continue to back up until front left wheel is on curb. Turn right side of tire onto curb and it comes right up without hitting the deck.

                  Can you make some kind of curb ramp?

                    I use this same method, works well!

                            So....this was due to not using ramps to go over the curb? I guess I do not understand this photo.
