Love my exmark Lazer Z hp. But I am noticing some more tendonitis problems in my forearms due to my age. I would like to get a hydro walk behind to complement my lazer by handling smaller areas, wet areas, and gated areas, but I just can't be squeezing something that much. I can't recall how many times I've had minor hand injuries or soreness that would have precluded using the ECS or pistol grip style systems. I'd hate to get one and not be able to use it all the time. Any plans being floated around in the future to offer T bar or other type steering on Exmark wb's as an option? Even a simple push/pull system that works much like the handles on a ztr (Great Dane and Wright mowers come to mind), flawed as that might be on a walk behind, would make it possible to buy an Exmark. The mower brand that has what I think is a superior control system doesn't cut the mustard in the areas of dealer service and support.
