i was looking at 36",but not sure.there are alot of places i could use a 36". the banks are not long but steep. dont know now ,the property i was gonna get,the manager said she was afraid to tell the guy thats mowing it that she didnt want his service.so that got shot in the dark for now.but i still need one anyway.thanks

That's a really really REALLY generic statement. You need to be a little more specific. You could be dealing with Rocky Mountain hills, East TN hills, etc. Also the 21" mower would be the safest but...

I'm in TN, for our hills 48". Try to get your local dealer to let you demo some. Try to stick with Toro, SCAG or Exmark. JD only if absolutely no other choice.

I'll stick with what I told you. 48 has enough weight to it. If you deal with places like Harlan and Corbin, etc. then you really should consider getting both the 48 and 21 in push. No joke.

I cut for a guy in Nashville, TN and I only lived there for about a year and the hills were unreal! I'm from Charlotte, NC and thats where I'm at now but the hills in TN were crazy! I always used a 21" Honda HRC the guy had for the hills and it did great but anything bigger I thought was just unsafe.
