Dumb question perhaps...I don't know. I'm only used to pretty flat surfaces. Nothing over, say, 30 degrees, max.....(if that). Now I'm a stranger in a strange new land - and it can be freakin' hilly here!
I can see that someone, somehow, has managed to cut some outrageous slopes around here and I can't figure out how.
So what's the best way to handle steep inclines? A walk-behind? A self-propelled 21"'er a lot of grunting? Please don't tell me a weedeater or I'll break down and cry.

W/B side to side maybe 45 angle...

Thanks for your suggestions. I kind of figured as much but I wasn't sure if there was just something obvious that I didn't know. I just won't approach homeowners with those really steep slopes (i.e. > 45 degrees). I don't have a WB - just a tractor and I don't feel comfortable with any slope over maybe 35 degrees, even side to side.
I guess one of these days I'll actually see someone doing it and I'll know how its done.
