 BX2200

I'm considering a BX2200 with 60" mowing deck. Two questions: It looks like the BX tractors should have a lower center of gravity than the B7500, due to lower ground clearance. Therefore, can I expect the BX to be less apt to tip over on a side hill? Also, on bumpy ground, will it be difficult to hold a consistent foot pedal position (and resulting speed)? Some type of cruise control looks like it would be helpful here.

I should have added that I'm considering the B7500 with manual transmission, if its hydro version doesn't have cruise control (anybody know?). I'm concerned that the B7500 might be more "tippy" than the BX, however.

Steve, in my opinion, the BX will be more stable on slopes than the B7500; lower center of gravity. And I've "heard" of folks who claimed they had a little problem with holding the foot pedal steady on rough terrain with the hydro. Personally, I've had a B7100 and now have a B2710 (both with "cruise control" - actually "speed set" that holds the pedal in one place), and occasionally, but very rarely use it. I usually don't have a problem holding a pretty steady speed, and if the terrain is so rough that I can't, then I need to slow down anyway. To me, it's a non-issue; maybe not to you, so you need to try them out on some rough ground.

Very good point by Bird. I tend to use the foot throttle more than the hand throttle. The main reason is that if my foot comes off it, then the tractor slows down. The only place I have trouble with uneven throttle is when roading the tractor 10 miles to our camp. It's a sure sign I need to slow down when my foot starts bouncing the throttle around.

Thanks for the tips, guys. Looks like I don't have any excuses left to not buy the thing.
