Yes, that is the biggest reason that I sold it, 40 years of dirt bikes and hard work has left me with a bum shoulder and two bad knees, so every time I got off I felt like I had been on a two hour ride.

It was fast, what I could do with that in 50 minutes my wife does in an hour and a half on the Toro. but there is a big plus for me in that statement. :D

I had a Scagg 60" with a velky. Loved that mower. I got chucked off more than once. Like a idiot I sold it to buy a ride on MTD tractor which turned into a total piece of crap so I gave it to Billy and bought the Zt Ariens.

I just took delivery of a Gravely ZTX-52 two days ago.  Definitely a learning curve, my old lawn tractor had a steering wheel.  I, too, am staying away from fences, trees or the pond until I am confident in my trimming precision  :D

If you call and my wife says "He's sawin logs", I ain't snorin'.

Touchy rascal, ain't it Tom?  :D :D

Not to worry though, you will learn quickly. I have about 5 hours on mine and feeling pretty confident.  :)
