He has been keeping the batteries charged up on all my cadets last summer. Well he liked my #3 int154 cub today. I let him with my son along side him take my 154 for a ride with the creeper in low/low it was very slow. I taught him how to use the clutch and the brake pedals and to turn the key off if anything bad happened. My son was with him the whole time just incase. The kid had a blast with the larger tractor. I'm just taking it slow with him. My son also realized how good the reduction tranny is too.
I found out later how good the twin brake pedals are too. I was pushing the leaves into the garden with the #3 (same tractor) and the left tire started spinning and the tractor stopped. I hit the left brake pedal and she backed right out of the garden. The twin brakes are not only for steering the tractor you can switch the power to either rear wheel too.
