    Just curious whether anybody has ever converted a pistol grip mower to some other control system?

    Not sure how on most machines but exmarks older TTs with pistols can be changed over to ECS if you have all the parts.

    That just so happens to be the very mower I am wishful thinking about. Alas, I have no spare ECS unit to toy with. At present, I was contemplating fabricating an old T-Bar system onto it...

    I used to have an older Exmark and switched over to the ECS system.
    Exmark offered it as a complete kit and if memory serves it was kinda expensive, around $200 - $250 I believe. However, it worked flawlessly once installed. Check with your dealer.

    I'll have to do some long distance communicating, as I have no dealers... I'll see what I can find. $250 seems like a steal to dump those friggin' pistol grips.

    Hahahahahahaha! That's the funniest thing I've heard today. We're not competitors, so why are you trying to do me in?

    $250 would be a great deal to dump the pistol grips.

    Just keepin' on keepin' on. Spent this past year planning to abandon ship and go back to school... but then the realities of being responsible for a family of 7 hit and I realized I'm stuck doing what I'm doing. So now I'm trying to reengage my lost interest and passion.
