I'm thinking about getting rid of the pistol grip on my next mower purchase but wondering what adjustments i may be in for. What i like about the pistol grips is that i can always lean back on them when needed to lift the front deck to jump over obstacles in the yards or to jump curbs to enter yards. When using the exmark type grip or new Lesco grip i can see how it will be impossible to lift the front deck same as with the pistols. So is it hard to crawl over curbs with the ecs, or do you just need to go real slow when jumping them? The lesco dealer told me that he knew one company that made these little "ramps" that they ran the mowers over to go from the road level into the yards. But i really dont want to have to take the time to use such a thing. I want to be able to crank the mower and get mowing asap. I want an easier grip for my wrists, but I dont want to run into a whole new set of problems.
