A cantilevered spring is supported proximate the transaxle of a piece of power equipment so as to be operatively related to the shift lever used to actuate the transaxle. The cantilevered portion of the spring comprises a main resilient section and an extension at its outer end which lies in a plane angularly related to that of the main section of the spring. The extension is provided with an elongated slot having a major axis which extends parallel to the plane of the spring's main section. The shift lever is received in the slot whereby actuation of the lever in a direction normal to the slot's major axis is resisted by the spring.
