I had a great dane when they first came out. The mower cut like a walk behind but you could ride on it. A walk behind and a great dane were the same price in 1996 so I bought one. The best thing about it was that you could step off. Several times I lost traction and down I would go down the hill, sometimes I would stay on to steer it down a hill and sometimes I would step off. I did flip over the dane once and when that happens you are forced off the platform by the ground. So I ended up standing there while my dane flipped over in front of me, but I was perfectly fine. The reason how this happened was I was coming out of some woods and there was a bank that wasn't to steep so I went up it and hit a rock that was under a bunch of leaves with one of my front wheels, that shot my mower in the air. Also I found it was hard on my knees hitting bumps over extending the knee and then coming down, I still feel it today. I know mowers have come along way since 1996. Good luck
