Hi All, I mowed my church's "Back 40" with their 1939 Ford Tractor with a pull behind grasshog. I never drove a tractor before that and am looking for some help for the next time. I believe there is 4 gears on it with one being reverse. It doesn't seem to run very well, while mowing, in any gear but what I assume is 1st gear. Is this ok or should I be concerned? Also, its got a braking system that is not very good. I seem to have used the clutch, shift to neutral, and let the weight of the machine stop me. Is this ok or should I be concerned? I really enjoy mowing and want to continue. It actually made me realize how much I miss cutting grass!!! Thanks in advance for any/all help!
