[QUOTE=MLAWCARE;4237590]About turning the blades on and off at lower throttle is something I had always done til I got my new mower and they said to do it at full throttle! I trust these guys and they are always there to help! Do you think its just a trick for me to be buying more parts sooner?[/QUOTE

I dont know why they would say that? 1/2 throttle is fine to start the pto, but i tell my guys to throttle down to an idle - or close to it, and then shut the pto off. I also make sure they understand that anybody (including myself) is walking up to there mower while there cutting, to immediately shut down the blades. safety first!
