    Ok so one of our hydrocuts gets stuck in reverse a little when you let go of the handles. So if you shut off the blades and step away to pick up some trash,open a gate, move something in the yard. It will start backing up. Sometimes more than others, but if you slap the back of the thumb controls forward a little it will stop backing up and sit still.

    What do you all think could be causing it? We tried adjusting the metal rods a little but that didn't help.

    Well, I'm not familiar with the Ferris line but as with any hydro unit jack the rear wheels off the ground then make control adjustments so the rear wheels do not move in the neutral position. Make sure all control pivot joints are clean and lubricated.

    Sorry I don't have more.....
