Wasn’t There a Stephen King Novel About This?

This is precisely why I pretend not to know how to use our lawnmower — for safety’s sake.  From our customer email archives:

I wanted to contact Timberland regarding an accident I had last week.  I was mowing my lawn and tripped while pulling the mower backwards. I fell on my backside and in the process pulled the running mower onto my right foot.  Fortunately for me, I was wearing my Timberland Pro steel toe slip-ons.  The blade shaved a bit of the sole, then the seam between the sole and the steel toe, then struck the steel toe itself.

The bone in my big toe is crushed and my foot is badly bruised, but I feel very fortunate since I could have lost part or most of my foot.

Thanks for your product!

Kevin from Minnesota
