Makes striping smaller areas virtually impossible. This the main reason I want your mower! Good news though.
hey sorry it took so long for me to responde I was at hockey, any way about the controls. Reverse is powerful, its not fast but its powerful. I could back it up a hill once again it would not be the fastest but your not going to "stop" half way up it due to lack of power.... As for reverse just pull the ecs controls back past neutral. Doing three point turns seems to be preety easy, I have been using the velke it came with so that makes it a bit hard. HOwever when I dont use the velke its easy. I have been trying to do straight up zero turns (im learnign with these controls) and im having a bit of trouble but im sure with more practice I will be fine... The best way I can describe the controls is, its like a walker mower you got your "cruise control" and then to slow down and reverse you just pull back on your controls (or sticks if your running a walker)... The only zero turn I have operated extensivly was a walker, I have never been good on traditional mid mounts due to the fact I have never owned nor worked for a company who used them. Overall I wanted a zero turn a walker to be exact but, with me going back to school the finances just are not there. The reason I bought this was for 2 reasons, a. the floating deck, I have used a metro before and I could not stand the scalping caused by a fixed deck. B. the hydros, I used the same metro and it beat the **** out of me I dont want to sound like a pussy but I dont want to wrestle a mower. Overall I ran the tt a bit more today and I could not be happier, im looking forward to using it in real conditions with grown grass lol... Any other questions feel free to ask, btw if you want any more pics just ask I will get them for you!
