Used to have a worker do that on a 48" Bobcat. He faced forward, put his arms behind his back to reach the brakes to steer. Don't think he scorched even one of his tatoos!

You can do that on most walkbehinds. I have done it on Exmark, Scag, Bobcat, Just sit on the starter and keep your legs away from the muffler and reach back and steer. I would start out slow though it is real easy to pop a wheelie and fall off. and definately don't do it with the blade on. Works great on big properties.
