I have been researching the commercial walk behind mower controls. It appears to me that if you use the ECS or pistol grips, you have to keep both hands on the controls to slow down or stop. That poses only one problem for me.....I cut a lot of yard where I'm constantly picking up sticks! It seems like the only mower that really would lend itself to constantly stoping and picking up sticks would be the Toro with the T-bar control. For this reason alone, I'm considering getting the Toro with the T-bar. Otherwise, I've heard good things about the Exmark with ECS controls. Any input or advise on this? Thanks!
