I really like my Yth1542XP lawn tractor except for the hand control for the hydro drive. Is there a conversion kit to change it to pedal control? 

 

Here is a picture of the tractor I took it at night so the color is a little off.

 

Thanks for your help

I have 2 hand control hydro's, and White 1655 and a Cub 1512.  The cub has a deck as my main mower.  It does take some quick hand work at times to control ground speed, deck lift/lower and steer all at the same time.  Takes a lot of getting used to.   I take it that lever on the right rear fender is the hydro control.  I can see where that would be a problem  due to the distance from the steering wheel.  The conversion could probably be done using different home built linkage under the tractor.  Be quit a winter project for sure.

Thanks chieffan that's what I will probably have to do, My main mowing tractor is my John Deere LT166 it have duel side by side pedal control and it is a dream to mow with, the duel pedals give you precise control.
