I recently bought an exmark metro with the pistol grips. It's not my primary mower so I bought the cheapest version I could get ( 32"/ 12.5 hp with pistol grips) I know the pistol grips have many disadvantages to the ECS but I couldnt afford the extra for them. My question is this. When going down a steep hill, I fell completely out of control with the mower. I can't seem to slow it down at all, it just goes how fast it wants( even when in 1st gear) Is there any way that I can control it while going down a steep hill or is this just a downside of the pistol grips?
