Fortunately we’ve had more near misses on 16 then splashes. Probably the most spectacular was the 5500 sprayer with one wheel over the bulkhead. The one that did go over was a GroomsMaster bunker rake. We had to use the backhoe to lift it back up onto the turf. Our operator had a little to much “Buddy Wiser” the night before. Until we lifted it we had no oil spill on the water. After it came up we had to scramble to keep the “sheen” from escaping. We probably only lost about a cup of fuel and were able to gather that up with our pads.
This pic was of a close call. It was left in neutral while the operator was putting the flag back in. An experienced operator but it still happens. And for those of you who maintain these, you know what a chore it is to keep up with the brakes. But this is the key reason we make sure our parking brakes work. (Usually)
