Daniel, Your neutral return system is a great piece of engineering. Nice Job.
You never told me about being run over by your Hog, We can ever be too careful.
It's somewhere in one of my threads about my being attacked by my own tractor. I went to start it standing right up to it. I felt the pedal & thought it was in neutral. It was only parked a couple or so feet from my well house, and the throttle was set just slightly above idle. It t fired up & immediately grabbed my left calf, and took my knee almost to the ground, but then the front of the tractor went against the well house, while the tire spun against my calf. Then I pulled my leg out from the tire & all was fine, other than a scraped red leg. Had Redwing leather boots on, so they saved my foot. Each tire was fluid filled and had 80+ cast weights on each.
