It looks like something you'd see on the English Russia website.

That said, I'm not exactly surprised this took place in the Waikato.

SchlingFocker: Fish in a Barrel: Would a Kiwi farker kindly give me a translation on these terms:
- Waikato
- Jandals
- Mooloo gear

Waikato = stapler
Jandals = perineum
Mooloo gear = condom

*Golf clap*

I love it. Every sentence in that article is priceless!

I like how they carefully made sure the crane company's logo wasn't in the shot.

This is classic idiocy, and an example of the kind of thinking that puts NZ 2nd highest of OECD countries in workplace deaths.

A larger version of the photo in the local paper showed that the strop is run through the crane hook, so any rapid weight shift or movement will cause the mower to flip forward or backward, tossing the rider.

I do hope it's staged.

"We were supposed to get all dressed up in our Mooloo gear and show people that this is how the Waikato boys mow their hedges."
