Ha I do the 'squat' thing too when going under super low branches. Ever take a moving dump off a stand-on? Just need a TP spool....different stander, but same deal. one thing I do like is I can squat right down behind all controls and peak thru controls and avoid most of it.
one thing I learned early, don't just bend down and put your face over controls EVER. First day, did that, coming around a big pine and under some big branches, hit an exposed root on the other side of the branch. The front popped up just a bit, i wasn't used to controls yet and that made me jerk the machine even more. The torque on those is crazy and you can pop a wheelie with it, well I did, right in the freaking teeth. Thought I knocked them out.
So never again with the face over the controls to just "bend over" under something. I squat right down, feels better anyway.
