Hilarious moment farmer carefully reverses sit-on lawnmower onto a trailer – but is sent flying

A farmer who appeared to have perfectly reversed his sit-on lawnmower onto a trailer went flying at the last second in hilarious footage.  

Dot Frankland was visiting her mother’s farm in Ripon, North Yorkshire, when her two brothers Ed and George constructed a makeshift ramp to carry the mower onto the van.

At first it seemed Ed, 25, had perfectly manoeuvred the vehicle onto the trailer, but disaster struck when it hit the cab of the van and bounced forwards.

Footage captures the lawnmower hurtling forward and smashing into the concrete, the machinery left ‘in bits’ on the ground.

Ed falls onto his back before quickly jumping to his feet and out of harm’s way.

Ms Frankland and George, 30, laugh behind the camera as Ed dusts himself off and assesses the damage.

His sister said: ‘I couldn’t believe it. I was laughing for about 10 minutes after.

‘Ed was meant to be going home with his children just before this happened but when George asked if he could help him, I took over putting the kid’s in his truck.

‘I said to the kids as they started putting the ramps onto the little van that ‘they should watch this as this could be funny’ and that’s when I decided to film it just in case.

‘I didn’t actually think the ramps would fall off the truck.’

Ms Frankland said the brothers had hoped to transport the lawnmower to a friend’s farm to help him clear overgrown grass.

‘George wanted to take the mower to his mate’s farm to cut some of his lawn that had grown too long but didn’t have any other means of getting it over there,’ she said.

‘He’s just started a new job working at a quarry where he drives diggers, dumpers and other machinery.

‘They didn’t have any other ramps to use other than these ones which they got from another trailer. 

‘I thought the mower had miraculously survived any damage but the main brunt was taken at the back end. The front didn’t break on impact but it did at the other end so the mower is now in bits.’

The clip, filmed on May 29, has since amassed 40,000 views.

Many commenters shared Ed’s pain, noting he had been doing ‘so well’ before the sudden crash.  

One wrote: ‘Damn, he was doing so well.’

Another person said: ‘Oh my god I literally wet myself but also hope he is ok!’

One person commented: ‘I’ve just watched that like 10 times and can’t stop laughing.’
