    Hye, you remember those Z mowers w/ the levers that actually lock the parking brake whe you push the levers out and into neutral? Do you think that's a good idea? I mean it seems like it would be quicker and save time actually for various things. The only down fall I can think of is if you want to move the levers in for some sort of storage purposes but ned the parking brake to stay on. I remember the Land Pride being one of the ones having it.

    My super z has them and I love not having to worry if the parking brake is engaged.

    Ok, keep 'em coming, but have you found any disadvantages to them?

    I dont mind pulling the parking brake on my Lazer, I dont even think about it I've done it so many times. But I suppose it could be nice.

    Love them on my Super Z. Im am the kind of person that would forget to place the e-brake if it was seperate from the handles and the Z would end up in a lake of on top of my wb on my trailer.:blush:

    my gravely will dye if i don't have the parking break on and get off, and besides it's at a very convient natural location, not awkard movement, so it's easy to do. It's automatic...
