Yeah a few times I zigged and the mower zagged putting the handle in my gut. But hey I wised up.
Some of your belt drive habits may be carrying over to the hydro. I know I had a hard time changing my habits and letting the machine do the work when I first switched.

Yeah , Ive been hydro for the last 5-6 years. I remember when I got my first hydro mower and it backed its self off the trailer I might look like a sissy if I got behind a belt drive now. I was trying to explain to my helper the other day about getting the tires to counter rotate. Cant drive it off of one tire.....well I guess you can

Carry a bag of quality grass seed with you for the divots until you figure it out, seriously.

If you used Meg Mo blades, you wouldn't have this problem.
