I own a farm in hilly Charlottesvilee, w/ about 3/4 of a mile long drive way and a dam that is 580 ft. long and 47 ft. high. Is the Hillsider the correct mower for this scenario and what is the suggested price? Thanks

Without knowing or seeing the slopes that is hard to say. I can tell you that the MSRP for the Hillsider is $39,000.00. I would be very surprised if that is the right mower for you. Our Hustler Z and Super Z are excellent on slopes but even they may not work for you. What are you mowing with now?

I am currently mowing w/ a Deweze ATM 70 circa 1992. The mower handles the incline but lacks some punch and produces an uneven cut due to its age and lack of ability to lift the grass.

Well, then the Hillsider may be the machine for you. It is not often that we have anyone other than a government entity looking at the Hillsider. If the price is just way too steep (sorry for the pun) you might find a used Hillsider at the Classifieds on our website at http://www.excelhustler.com

I run a 640 the older 6400 and love it. I have not come across a hill this thing will not handle. It is the only SAFE way to mow hills in my opinion. Artman is right the cost is deep but the value is high

Can you recommend a good dealer for parts/etc... here in Virginia?

ken, I am wondering if you are still using the hillsider 6400 tractor with your lawn service in VA. Can you comment on the experiences --reliability, cost of ownership, availability of parts, etc. I am contemplating getting one.
