The operator, who did not want to be named, is now nursing a broken hand, but said it wasn't a fall from the mower that caused the injury but one off the crane.
He admitted it was not the safest method of trimming the hedge, but said it was all done as a bit of a joke.
They wanted to film the stunt, put it on the internet and see how many hits it got, but in the end had no video camera.
That, my friends, is pathetic. Not only a broken hand BUT NO VIDEO. WTF?! I demand a re-do. But this time with fireworks shooting out the back. Oooh, and bikini girls. Plus more injuries. I suggest fraying the cables and loosening the mower blade. YOUTUBE VIDEO OF THE CENTURY! And I want producer credit.
High rider trims his hedge [stuff]
Thanks to Patrick, who trims his hedge the old fashioned way: with a straight-razor. Yikes!
