I dont know how strong the hoses are, but their set up looks to me like they are liable to catch on stuff if used the way I mentioned.
I doubt they will "brake" off. (pun intended)
but seriously, if you take a few seconds to make sure your not driving into something that COULD cause damage then I think it would be perfectly fine.
I'd love to see these become standard on ZTR's. I have one place I cut that I've already slid down the hill into a tree! Had my mower been equipped with front brakes I would have never came close to even sliding.
