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.
Kubota L-4200, Ford 8N, S-10 4WD Beater truck, Chainsaw, Bush Hog, couple ATV's and 141 acres of trees I'm not sure what to do with but I sure do have fun and enjoy being in the woods!

DanG,

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
07 Timberking B-20, Custom-made log arch, 20' trailer w/ log loading arch, F350 SD flatbed dump.  Princeton piggy-back forklift.  Bobcat S250, Stihl 025C 16" and a Husqvarna 372XP 24/30" bars, Grizzly 20" planer.
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.  :)
