Why did the front wheel are not spinning like some mower that you run why sit on it??
You will not have to push down the mower at each end of row that you mowed.
When your young no problem, but when you are little bit older, that will ease the process.
Is that a bad idea.

I *think* they're asking for front wheel drive, so they can keep drive handle down while rotating/changing direction.

Sounds to me like they are asking for the front wheels to spin so they don't have to raise the front end of the mower when it's time to turn it around.

You are right. There is no need to be rude but I can be rude with the best of them.

I understand. I didn't mean to seem hostile, and I understand that you were just being objective and stating facts.

I know your type, that happens to people like you all of the time. I know. I used to be just like you in that respect, and I think I would be correct to compare you to Spock.

So you want to pick up the rear to pivot around? Hmm great way to get your legs as close to the blade as possible. This is a horrible idea. If i undersfand it correctly.
