    Definitely need a spare with a single axle. Also need to look at getting at least 4 ply radials.

    So I got a quick question on the walk behind so when im cutting with walk behind it works perfectly but dies when I put it in reverse. Not really sure what it would be wondering if you guys have experience with this? keep in mind this is and older mower

    Could be a safety switch.

    thats what I was thinking but I have tried doing it while blades are engaged and when blades arent engaged. i have both breaks on when i engage reverse and if i let go it will go in reverse before it dies so it still might be safety switch but still not sure where its at

    on my toro mine would die when i engaged the blades until the motor was warm. now it should be warm out but maybe letting it run a while might help? could be old gas as well.

    Do shafts spin? Any clicking noises?

    So
    Don't use reverse much
    Just feather the hand brake and pull backwards in one direction or the other for reverse turns.

    If you need to shift gears use your knee
    I think but am not sure that your hands might be leaving the operator presence controls (safety) when you're trying to go into reverse and you don't realize that you're doing it, and the machine dies out, as designed

    Just a guess
