Question about Garden
I just bought this lawn mower a couple of weeks ago. On day one I found out the thing cannot cut in reverse as a safety feature. I have tried to get used to it, but it is way too annoying. Could anyone please tell me how to get around this.
When you put the machine in reverse it engages a safety switch, the switch can be jumped out with a piece of elec. wire, or it can be removed and repositened where it will not come into contact with shifter

Testimonial: "I'm unfamiliar with machinery, a little more detail would have been nice. Overall, this was right on the money! The solution was extremely helpful!"
If it is an MTD mower then turn the ignition key one click back to the left (anti clockwise) and depress the little yellow button next to the key switch. This will allow reverse cutting. It will need to be reset like that every time you switch off the engine.
