This year I am relying totally on a 48" TTHP with the ESC controls but to tell you the truth my hands and forearms are starting to feel constant tingles and pain. I have kept all moving parts and linkage clean and greased and I have kept the moving areas sprayed with WD-40. It just seems that after hours of using the mower the pain starts up and now carries on into the weekend even when I am not mowing. The mower does a great job but I don't know if I can withstand this all the way through the season. Does anyone else experience the same problems? I was thinking about looking for a mower with different controls.
