Just purchased a 2102SP and I was curious it it was better for the mower/more efficient to keep the bail switch depressed the entire time (when turning around to do another strip of grass) or to release and then start up again?

Thank you!

If you're only taking a few seconds to make the turn it's probably better to just keep it running. If you're walking to a different section of the lawn it would probably be best to turn it off and restart.
