Here's some of the slopes I mow...It's hard to tell the steepness by the pictures but they can get nasty sometimes...I do this one with the old 36" belt drive Bobcat walkbehind...

That's a decent slope. Our exmark is absolutely horrible on hills. I think it has to do with the bagging system but we never use it without the bagger so I don't know. My friend has a Ferris and it holds hills really well, unfortunately that's just about the only thing it does well...

Would you charge mor if you have to bring out the wb on a property like that?

Why would you bag all that acerage?

I know it doesn't matter to you, as I'm sure you get paid by the hour, but...

I would mow much more of those slopes on my old Lazer, and almost all of them on the SuperZ.....it's like a spider on hills.

LOL!! Come on guys, thats not a hill.. I could mow that with a push mower. Now I have hills that you can only use weed-eaters. and you have to watch your step so you don't go sliding over the hill.

OK Those are some pretty bad slopes. I have a couple of accounts w/ slopes that are ridiculous and the mowers that I use that work the best are my 54" Lesco ZTWO it has 24'x12'x12' tires and a wide wheel base and believe it or not a John Deere 48" Quik Track, that thing holds a hill like nobodys business. It takes some time to learn how to manouver it but after a while it becomes second nature.

for a w b to hold a straight line you need to have good belts and the correct belt adjustments. i have found many lawn operaters, never - never adjust there belts, they just talk trash on their equipment. also for most w - b that are used hard every season you should replace your drive belt every season, it's such a small price to pay to make your life a lot more comfertable. be a pro.
