RE:tractor design faults
John,

Now I have a real reason to return to Wales!!  I want to see you cross your legs and lock your brakes!!!  LOL!!!  You would have to be very athletic to contort your movements!!

For me, my big feet can handle the way Joe described.  Just use the tips of your toes and hopefully your heal can reach the brake lock.  I was always amazed to watch my dad do that so easily. 

All my tin tractors have that same configuration (other than the Ponies).

Speaking of Ponies, now there is another challenge!! Not to set the brakes but to release them.  Again you have to reach down and flip the lock back.  Us fat boys have a hard time with that!!
