I think they need to give me one to torture test then do a review on.

It said somewhere that mowing speed was limited to "I think" it was 5 or 6mph.


But, if you break off a beer can tab and use it in just the right place you can begin the creative learning process on top speed.  Afterall, you can defeat a JD RIOS with only the rubber butt cap for a salt water fishing rod.:D


But... I've been wrong before on newfangled stuff...  I was the last guy to buy a cell phone, thought they were just a fad for the upscalers.:D

There's a Hi/Lo shift rod on the rear axle that you have to reach underneath to shift at the axle.  Mower deck won't engage when in high.  Although... I'm sure there's got to be a switch down there somewhere to tell the controller what range it's in.  You could probably use your beer can tab on it. :thumbs:



P.S.  You do know it's been several decades since beer cans had pull tabs, right. :smilewink:
