Is it worth the extra $$$ ?
Whats that? lol sorry
Yes, How many times do you need to stop and pick something up . You do not have to restart the mower. it saves time and effort.
Willofalltrades Whats that? lol sorry Blade brake.
It's the thing that stops the blade but doesn't turn off the engine. I was thinking that would be a good thing if there were objects lying on the grass and you had to move them but apparently it works on a belt that could slip.
I have that override...I just wrap duct tape around the handles
I had never heard it called that before. I would like that on my mower.
if you you r handy you can wire the engine kill to kill the blade relay instead
If I rename something... I wonder if I can patent it
Is it common on commercial mowers?
It is the BBC option (blade brake clutch), essentially a PTO, and it is becomming more popular on 21'' push mowers. This option allows the user to turn off the blade of the mower and keep the engine running while you empty the bag, change deck height, etc.
Depends on what you are doing with it really. If you bag lots of yards it is good or for leaf cleanups if you use a 21'' it is good. The option is pricey at ~300 bucks but I imagine it is nice to have.
