When I use my JD 140 I never use the break. Should I use the break instead of reling on the hydro for breaking? Is it ok or bad practice? Also what probems should I look out for when using my 140?

I'm going to move this to the JD Forum. May get better answers there.

I always use the hydro to slow down on any GT, except in emergencies.

I would use the brakes some to keep the rust cleaned off in case you do need them.
