I'll have to admit, this is the first time I've looked it up. Was told many years ago 8 lbs on rear.

This is from the 2012 Classic manual;

You must been around older DC
I have 4 that has drum brake system pull the brake it dont go no where
the band brake system isnt the best but with proper maintenance they do work well
You're confusing the Silver Eagle with the Classic..

Got a 2011 2750 Classic. My dad isn't heavy enough like I am. When he bounces the engine starts to die and sometimes will backfire. I only see one plug for the seat that is plugged directly into the seat if I unplug the one pictured mower will start but when I release parking break it will die. I'm guessing I'm unhooking the wrong one?

If its like mine it's on the cross member where the back edge of the seat hits. I can't remember it's a 3 or 4 prong plug.

Just went and checked the back rail the seat rests on. I don't have a switch there.

Okay I followed the wires goes into a harness then branches off to control lever switch, parking brake switch, into engine then to under control panel. I didn't see any other switches. I've got to be missing something.

It wouldn't bother me to not have any safeties at all. My Exmark Lazer has had them all disabled since 2008. No employees ever run the machines. IMO the best safety is between my ears.
