WOW! I did that on a john deer 1145 once, one of our team swam down 10' to chain the mower up, took 2 bob cats to pull it out. Was your mower completely submerged?

" I can get around this tree if I go fast enough" - not so much. Wasn't in the water until we tried to get it unstuck.

Lmao. Well I think I have learned something out of your mishap... It's something I would have done too.

If you went slow, you'd probably get stuck, or begin to slide, so I would have gone fast to try to clear it too.
