    Finally bought my new w/b (48" Gear drive - Gravely), Was delivered on Monday. I appreciate all the advice given to me on me previous threads. First time I ever used such a machine, It dragged me around like a little girl & I never got higher than second gear. I guess it will take some practice to get the hang of feathering the brakes when turning (I only put two hours on it so far)?? Anyway, Thanks again.

    You'll catch on fast. Just don't go too fast too early. Don't try and make a 360 turn yet. Make a 3 point turn till you get used to the machine. When i got my first mower i used to practice in my driveway....
