As others have stated, typically only have either just the ball of the foot (forward) or the heal (reverse) on the control. I love the kubota control, but wouldn't if I had all foot on the control all the time.

Re: Hydrostat Forward/Reverse Rocket Pedal--Not My Favorite Method
My first kubota was a gear shift. I was concerned that with an HST when working in close quarters I would go the wrong direction with disastrous results. Now I'm on my second Kubota and it has HST. With over a year using it that has never happened. I don't recall ever stepping on the reverse pedal while mounting the tractor. I'm pretty big guy - 5'10" 220. Maybe I just have small feet. I always mount from the left side.
Might I suggest (as I have been doing lately) to shift the range lever to N before dismounting the tractor. I usually lower all my implements to contact the ground as well.Caution: Some of my posts may be politically incorrect.
Kubota B7510 & B3200
