Because of all of the rain making the ground very wet, resulting in the 2025R turning areas of my yard into hog lot, I have ordered a new 2017 X739 to mow with. It will be delivered Wednesday, just in time for the next mowing. They have to bring it from another one of their stores. I did not think to ask about the RIO when I was at the dealer ship.
I did a search & also pulled up the online manual on the RIO. Those just confused me. The manual & youtube videos, show 2 RIO button locations. One location is the PTO switch on the right side of the steering wheel. The other location is a push button on the left side of the steering wheel. One guy on youtube used a clothed pin on the PTO switch. Another guy jumped the wires on the push button. I would like to bypass the RIO like I have done on all of my prior mowers.
