    At one time there was a patent issue, yes.
    The foot switches were removed so they would disable the stand up use / feature of the ShortCut.

    Its more complicated than that, we could, but it wouldn't be a stand on unit, only sit down.

    The shortcut was ahead of its time.....

    I get asked about this unit quite often. I think they would be much better perceived in the market today, than they were back then.

    I especially liked the uppercut deck for rear discharging and bagging. This was a great cemetary mower.

    Oh, well. It's all in the past, now.
