Al Saunders Posted November 3, 2022 Share Posted November 3, 2022 This is will be our 4th year with our 22' mega tree and got it set up over the weekend. I was on my mower and ducked under a guide wire but got caught on the arm rest on my zero turn. It was standing but the wires were loose mostly from the one that I snagged. I went to tighten the loose wire, BY MYSELF, and didn't hold onto the wire. Watched it go towards the tree and thought would be it. Then...TIMBER!! The topper was from Christmas Light Show and the bar on the side that hit the ground broke at the weld and the bars on the sides of the pulley bent really bad. Thankfully out of 96 strings I only lost 6 strings so I just ordered what I needed from Holiday Lights Express. I'm hoping I can find a new tree topper after posting this. Could have been much worse, falling on me! As disappointing as this is, my wife and I are looking at it as a blessing since it happened so early in the month and we're able to order more lights. Moral of the story, be careful around your mega tree and if by chance you need to adjust any of the guidelines, make sure to have help. Happy lighting friends!
