John Deer Stander Questions

I'm a newby and just bought a J-D Quik Trak. I tried it at the dealer and liked it. I also spoke to a guy in the business who said he could mow faster with a stander than a Z. He said though, that he needs to keep the wheels turning to keep the lawn from being ripped up. He said hills at first were scary but now they're no problem.

Long story short, I tore the heck out of my lawn on my de-virgining. (I have a hilly lawn.)

Are there any tricks/techniques:) I should know with this equipment?

By the way, other than the obvious places where I made turns, the cut was FANTASTIC! It looked like carpet . . . better actually.

start and stop slowly, and if the grass is just a little damp you have to be even more careful...

at the end of a pass turn the machine to the side of the next pass until you are perpendicular to the way you are cutting, then reverse slowly turning to align the mower with the next pass......it takes some practice.....
