Has anyone had trouble with the machine auxiliary hydro continually slipping out of detent? This makes it near impossible to run a rake, tiller, etc where your hands are full already. There is a rocker switch on the dash to hold it in place. It could be this switch or the sensor on the platform, but I don't think so because it only slips out when you go to curl or move the arms.

I don't understand what the switch actually does to keep it mechanically locked in place? Anyone familiar?

Yeah it is a switch on the dash. I would prefer a foot switch. I haven't called them yet. It didn't get really bad until yesterday.
