I have an '86 Toro w/T-bar steering (it was moth-balled for a decade). I can mow with it drunk or asleep. I want to get an Exmark 36" Tracer HP. How easy is the 'pistol grip' control to learn? The T-bar is intuitive for me, and I really worry about the learning curve on the pistol grip stuff. How long did it take you to become 'one with the mower?' If you have used both, which do you like better? Which was the most natural for you?
