Just come from Hospital with a broken bone below my knee. I was trying to lift a Petter A type with a bit of rope around my neck & shoulders onto my workbench when the rope snapped & the engine fell onto my right leg & snapped the bugger in two. I did have my mobile & called the Ambulance who in turn called the Fire brigade who lifted the engine off me. As I was on the floor. The Fire crew & ambulance crew both said if I had not had my mobile on me (My shed is 200m from the house & Mandy was out anyway) It could have been much worse. Many folk will quite rightly say silly bugger or I got what I deserve. Well my Dad did say that & so did my Wife.
So to end to all For Christ sake get the right lifting gear & be safe not sorry like I am. I am self employed & it is my Busy period it pains me more that I have to employ someone else to do my work. Yes I have learnt my lessen now I can tell you
