Those mowers are super stable, that thing looks brand new. Do you mow commercially with it or is it for your orchard/farm?

Sand blasted and used spray bedliner for underside of decks to prevent rust.

I have been running that idea through my head for years. Matter of fact I almost made a thread about it the other day.

I've got about 60 acres that I bush hog. Use my Kubota 9540 and bush hog for most of the acreage. I do the very severe slopes with the Kut Kwick

144301

144302

Slopes like this:
144303

and this, the house is about 450' elevation change
144305

I have a lot of 50 degree plus grades. Get's your pucker factor up the first time you do it.:canadaflag:

New ones are somewhere north of $45k. I put in a low bid at at an auction and stole this one. Had to drive to Madison, Wi to pick it up.

Took it to the factory in Georgia and had them check it out. They have a lot of 25 year old machines still in service. 38hp yanmar diesel.

I've been scouting for some jobs. I have a few friends where I cut there slopes as a favor. A lot of the new shopping developments have retention ponds with some severe slopes and there are some municipal jobs available. I'm retired so my interest so my interest is doing 1 or 2 jobs a month.

That has to be the sweetest mower I've ever seen in my life. Could you post some pics of it in action on some slopes?

Storm came in this evening and more rain tomorrow. Soon as it dries out I'll be starting some slope mowing and shoot some pics.

The seat pivots I see. That's a cool mower. Look forward to seeing it in action.

Just a question...I was looking on their website and they mentioned that it cut slopes up to 40% and you mentioned that you cut slopes over 50%.

Well, I guess that wasn't a question, it was just a statement.

I think the key words on their website are efficient and fast. I'm not sure when they cite 40 degrees if they are talking angle or grade. 40 degree angle is like 65% grade. Do know that in talking to an old timer at the factory he said he demonstrated units at 50 degrees plus (I assumed he meant grade).

I cut this slope slowly and it is at least 50 degree grade, you cut across the slope, not up and down as I would do with my tractor.
