Hustler ride on Mower, can you drive it with one hand?

Looking at a second hand Hustler 36" for my five acres, I've heard good things about the brand and about zero turn radius mowers, but I kinda need one hand free for my lemonade and I know that it is a two-lever operated machine.

My question is will it be possible to drive AND drink at the same time? Say

Looking at a second hand Hustler 36" for my five acres, I've heard good things about the brand and about zero turn radius mowers, but I kinda need one hand free for my lemonade and I know that it is a two-lever operated machine.

My question is will it be possible to drive AND drink at the same time? Say I keep my lemonade in between my legs could I use one hand to push both leavers forward when going in a straight line? Or could I mack an attachment to it, like a stick I can take on and off while driving in a straight line to meet the same ends?

And for all you people who have a problem with me drinking lemonade while operating heavy machinery, well, I'm just going to go and change all instances of the word "lemonade" to lemonade. Are you happy now?

Also it's a good mower right? Three years old, I *think* it's a raptor, getting it for $4500, said it was around $7000 new.

Best Answer:

Saucy: It's possible, but……….you will need any drink in a closed container so you can put it in the cup holder, provided. I carry Gatorade. In a straight line, you can drive with one "stick" momentarily while you get a drink then replace in cup holder. Takes a little practice. No, you can't have a glass of lemonade in your hand all the time, sipping and mowing. I much prefer my Bad Boy over Hustler, and have used both. I think they are asking way too much for the used Hustler.

Other answer:

Saucy:
Hustler Mower
Dan B:
Get yourself a hat with a cup holder on it. Run a tube to your mouth. Leaves both hands free. If you want to take a break from drinking, blow through the tube to create an air lock. Google "Beer Hat" and look at the images.
oklatom:
It's both unsafe and unwise to run a zero turn mover with one hand.
Barry:
You need the helmet with the two beverage holders and drinking tubes. Then you can dual stick all day long and still shotgun the lemonade.
Saddle Creek Riders:
they make a zero turn that has a joystick control, great for mowing and having a beer at the same time
ㅤ:
A thought shared.
Hugo90:
You need both hands to steer
dj:
Get someone else to mow and you can sit and drink your lemonade peacefully.
Brigalow Bloke:
Next you'll want a mini-bar and air conditioning.
