    Just talked to the owner of ROOF TRACTOR and yes it does have an adjustable deck, 2 forward gears, 1 reverse. The lever on the side in back slides the engine to engage the drive gear, and the pedal is for the clutch and the brake, AMAZING I SAY JUST AMAZING!!

    It is a neat little machine I must say and thanks for doing this research. If I saw one around here I would probably buy it! I'm a nut for machines and unique items.. My other half says constantly; you are not getting any younger, stop buying things! CAN'T!
