very simple. I just got my first ECS at the end of april. take it on speed 2 at first then speed 3. it may seem slow but trust me, there powerful if theyre out of control. dint use a sulky until you learned the ECS.

run it up and down the strret for about an hour and a half. works like a charm.

also, depending on how big your tires are, make sure you do a 9 degree turn or ull rip up grass

How do you think it helps with minimizing carpal tunnel syndrome which we have seen more about lately on the forum?

Carpal tunnel syndrome (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001469/) is pressure on the median nerve ** the nerve in the wrist that supplies feeling and movement to parts of the hand. It can lead to numbness, tingling, weakness, or muscle damage in the hand and fingers.

Causes, incidence, and risk factors:

Use of tools (especially hand tools or tools that vibrate)

I believe the man I bought my mower had this. this is why he had to sell his business. In fact, the worst case in North America ever recorded

Oh wow! I wonder what his view was on how he got it and if he would have any advice for you as what to do to avoid getting it yourself!

It's good to keep all this in mind because we all tend to work ourselves to exhaustion.
