I'll be getting my Cub Cadet 1512 diesel tomorrow, and one thing that concerned me was the fact that the tractor would continue to move without any operator activity. I'm not experienced with tractors, and I suppose it's just the way they are and I'll have to get used to it, but I'd rather have it so that I need to keep foot pressure on a pedal, and have it stop if released. Or to have a sort of "cruise control" that stops the drive when the brake is actuated.

I figure that I could just put a valve in the hydraulic line to the transaxle, if that's the way it's constructed. There must be a main pressure line going to the control on the dash, and I would think just blocking the flow would stop the transmission, although I don't know if it would create braking action. I could use or make something like this (but not pay $300!):

Here's one for $90:

Any thoughts? Thanks.

OK, I just played with my tractor and it works as you said. I did a start-up and move with the trailer, and then I disconnected the trailer and took a ride down the service road and back. I feel better about it now. Just a newbie thing! I don't know if the seat switch works, but there is an electrical connection there. I took videos - they'll be on youtube this evening!
