    OK, am I the only one that just can not remember to take off the parking break, does anybody have any suggestions how the remember to take it off? I just know I will be replacing my brakes way to often, is there any other damage I could caused by this absent mindness?

    I have done this many times....I have trained myself to tap the brakes every time I get on the tractor just before I push the hydro pedal Took some time but it is now a habit!

    Apply the brake firmly enough that it stalls the tractor when you try moving with it applied.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    I don't believe it's possible to stall my Massey by holding the brake.

    Fortunately my L5030 has a light and the M8540 won't start with the brake applied and our BX2660 won't move, I use to run our BX2200 with e brake on all the time.

    As mentioned, about the best way is to just get in the habit of tapping your brake every time you get on.

    If he could quickly and easily develop a new habit, he wouldn't keep driving off with the brake still on. I suggest a written start up checklist taped to the dashboard.

    I thought I had myself 'cured', but..........just today, I started moving with the brake engaged. Only went 2 or 3 feet, but still.........I should know better after a year and over 100 hours.
