For 15 years now I have used my walk behind mower without much thought in using the optional walk behind ride on attachment. I have seen others use it, have been asked why I don't use it, but have never thought to buy it. I have always for some reason thought it would be a big problem as far as manueverability goes...in tight spots..hills..small lawns..etc. It just always seemed better to just walk the mower and be in better control than to deal with this attachment. I don't mind the walking at all, but this year I have gotten about 5 pretty good sized lawns and all the walking can get tiring after awhile, especially on a hot day. (like last week!) Any input would be greatly appreciated.
