I purchased a 2002 Turf Tracer HP 52" 17 HP Kaw with ECS and a mulch kit. I absolutely love this mower and so do my customers. My question, is there a way to make the ECS control handles easier to squeeze? When the speed control is positioned in the 2-3 position, I am only using the tips of my fingers because I have small hands. Also, my hands cramp up because of the tension on the control handles are too much for me. Any suggestions??
