One word of advice....DON'T let the DW use it.....you will never be allowed to mow again I made that "mistake"


I made that mistake once with a brand new snowmobile.
I rode it the first 500 miles she put on the next 5000

My old Cub with the blown motor has 482 hrs on it and the only problem was replacing belts a couple of times. Greased it 2x a year and changed oil/filter every 100 hours. Did put knobby tires on back to mow the ditch by the highway. Replaced the blades 3 or 4 times due to rocks here in this NC clay.

I was wondering how are you gonna hold a beer and mow at the same time? You need both hands to run a zero-turn. Then I turned to Homer for inspiration...

Oh No! The steering arms on my Gravely come together close enough it can be driven with one hand!
At least in a straight line long enough to take a drink!!

Actually you can turn quite a bit with one hand !
I can do it pretty good as the crane controls have two levers per hand and more often then not they go opposite directions.
