I Beg To Differ It Really Depends On What Kind Of Machine You Have

All the gear drive walkbehinds Ive own you had to stop and shift gears. These transmissions are not like a car. I own a Scag and a Toro.

you can keep moving, just pull on the handles till you are in neutral, shif gears and keep going. No need to come to a complete halt. Just dont try to get it to shift while its in gear.

If its a T-Bar control just let the handle rest in the neutral postion. If its a pistol grip, you can squeeze the handles on each side and take your knee and move the gear selector to the gear you desire

If the tranny is engaged (clutches out) you can damage the shift keys inside the tranny. As long as the tranny is freewheeling it is safe regardless of whether the mower is moving or not.

Mowboy - you made post #2 on this thread saying you make a boat load of money ----- Are you reporting it and paying taxes like most of us on this site that consider mowing a business, or are you just doing a cash deal and cheating all the tax payers in the USA.

Excuse me Moyboy - It is in your signature line that you make boatloads of money - are you insured, do you pay taxes, etc or do you just cheat the economy? You owe this site a response, and you owe this site an honest response. How old are you (I am guessing between 13-17?)

Probably does - I think I was trying to respond to another thread, but it is the same deal. I do no care how much per acre he makes. It boils down to how much per hr. compared to how much invested in equip. I have you all beat - hands down on the acre production/$Per invested. I will come and demo, if you pay my way. May seem rather expensive, but in reality, it could be the cheapest thing you have ever done.....

Shifting On The Fly Is Like Doing A Neutral Drop In A Vehicle

This has absolutely nothing to do with this threads subject. Those of you who openly brag about how much money you make, do a Google search on a place called "Studio 54". The IRS is every where.

Don't mind them. They apparently carried a disagreement over from another thread.

Just squeeze on the steering levers, and push the gear lever over with your knee.
