Is there a tractor mower that does not need use of right foot?

I would like to buy a new (small) tractor mower (in the UK) that does not need the use of my right foot. I can't find one! Please help, thanks.

I don't think Sears products are available in the UK, but below is the link to a garden tractor they sell with no right hand foot pedals.

Have you considered a zero-turn mower? Very fast and efficient, no foot pedals on most designs. I have one, wouldn't go back to a tractor type mower.... like it very much, and it is very maneuverable! (John Deere 425 EZTrak).

Here is a link that might be useful: Sears garden tractor

In the U.S., hydrostatic transmissions come in two configurations. With the most common, forward and reverse movement is controlled by the right foot. LESS COMMON configuration has a lever protruding through the right-side fender which is used to select direction and speed. Move the lever forward to go forward; move it more to go faster. It is not necessary to hold the lever in position; move it to the direction/speed you want and it stays there.

Nigel, the Ariens model 936065 has the hand-lever operated hydro transmission, and the brake is operated with the left foot. Appears it would meet your needs. Ariens is a Husqvarna product, sold in the U.S. at Lowes or Home Depot stores. You can see it at Ariens is Husqvarna's lower-end equipment, but with proper maintenance should be reliable. I have no idea if it's available in UK. The John Deere CR125 Auto (which is available in the UK) appears to have a hand-operated transmission; seems pricey at about 2400 pounds but should be a quality machine. Check John Deere's UK web site.
