Dixie Chopper ZTR caster locks?

When I was going through my mower brochure collection I found a brochure from 10-20 years ago showing a ZTR with V-belt pullies on the front casters, and a regular V-belt going around them. There was some lever the operator could pull to lock the front casters so it could be driven straight ahead. Has anyone used any of these and did they work well?

I have Z Spray with caster locks, and if it didn't have those on the machine you could not go sideways on hills, it's a must!

No, I'm not talking about "brakes". I'm talking about a devise to lock the front casters so you can drive it straight ahead.
