Yeah, when you manually push the mower, pull that lever out as it 'disengages' the hydro. That's what the lever is designed for.

Pushing the tractor without pulling the lever out will not be an easy task.

I've never tried pulling a tractor without releasing the hydro, but I'm sure it would not be easy and more than that it could be damaging the the hydro system. Just remember to pull out the lever every time you want to push the tractor around and you'll be fine; you'll know it if it's not pulled out cause it won't budge.

Also, remember the most important thing around here is, there are NO dumb questions! There are questions you don't know the answer to, and none of us did at one time. By asking, not only do you learn the procedure, but others that read the forum will gain some knowledge from your post as well, so ask away!
