Yeah, they can be converted back to the old pistol grips, but the cost is pretty high, I had a guy that wanted my ECS and was going to trade me for his pistol grips, but my dealer said his controls would not fit my newer mower easily and would cost a lot to modify it to fit. So I just deal with it now, and use my Ferris DD as much as possible.

Turns out to be expensive and pure, absolutely perfect and unadulterated garbage!
Horse manure that is, bull crap, and nonsense.

Nothing works like a T-bar, no fancy hydraulics to give out, no expensive liquid leaks upon
someone's aggregate driveway, and last but not least they're not cheap but they ain't no 7g.
i tried it.if it' so great,why no one use it? i never see them.

i just sold a 1992 Scag Hydro walkbehind and it didn't leak a drop from the hydros.original hoses ,pumps and wheel motors.not a drop.all bone dry.

best walk behind /rider is the rich mfg convertible mower. ride and when u get to a hill or ditch get off and the handle bars fold back which turns it into a walk behind. i fitted it with a pro-slide sulky. fast mowing and 2 mowers in one. u can also get the mulching deck and mow down anything it will drive over. can also be bought at dr they have extended warranty for up to 4 years
