    I am used to a belt drive scag 52 with pistol grips and I can tilt the deck up for rough terrain with no problem. I just picked up a used 60 TT and I am a little suprised as to how hard it was to lift the deck off the ground. I did have my back pack blower on the deck so i am hoping that made the difference. I like the ecs controls, but damn it doesnt give you much leverage to tilt the deck up. What the hell do you do if you get into something you dont want to, like a stump or a rock?

    anybody else have this problem? What do you do if you want to lift the deck away from an obstacle or curb?
