    Do your hands/arms get tired/sore running these mowers? Does having to keep constant pressure on the levers to make it go get tiring? On my current W/B I release the controls to go and squeeze them to stop (which seems like the complete opposite of the JD).

    Thank you for any opinions of these mowers,

    Joel B.

    I don't own quick tracs, just 777 and 757 z tracs but I would imagine that all the stand up mowers like great dane and wright standers would give the same discomfort.

    Ive just had my JD Quik trak 647 since Feb....I havent had any discomfort. On mine, there is an adjustable bar in front of the controls. It can be brought closer to the controls so that there isnt as much of a stretch. I do this when my wife mows.

    My hands started hurting a little on a 3 acre lot. As for small residentials, you won't be hurting. Handles are adjustable to fit your needs and speed.

    Yes, I agree...I do mostly smaller residentials so the amount of use at one time is limited.:usflag:
