Started my own business this year. Equipment listed under avatar. Landscaped for 10 years or so back in late 80's early 90's and even became a foreman. Ran Scag and Snapper walk behinds back then. I was working today (my day job) and saw this guy on a 36" with a velke. All I can say is the mower was red because it was 100 feet away or so. This guy went backwards without stopping. I was like WTF??? So I watched some more...I'll be damn, he went backwards/reverse without missing a beat. So since most of you have been in this industry for a long time...what gives? My Snapper Pro Express only goes in reverse when I stop, lock the handles out and PUT it in reverse...OH, and 2 week ago I saw another guy on a 52" Scag and he did the same damn thing so when I saw this guy on a 36" hittin reverse without stopping or missing a beat I just had to ask...anyone know the deal with this "new" (new to me) walk behind auto reverse? Thanks.
