View Full Version : lawnmower wheels

01-15-2004, 04:14 PM
I have a walk behind self-propelled z-turn Honda lawnmower. It has the feature of locking the front swivel wheels in place for holding hills, etc. One particular place that I mow has a 75-80 degree hill that is mowed. It is too long of a hill to go up and down. Can I change the wheel size or change the tires to rubber or what do you all recomend to solve the problem of my lawn-mower wanting to slide down as I go across the hill? I have also thought that more weight on the machine would help. I know that it weighs more than most because it is a commercial bagger. What do you all recommend?:gunsfirin

"One particular place that I mow has a 75-80 degree hill that is mowed."

Nothing can do that! Try your weedeater.

yeah, if you can mow a 80 degree incline, you may be able to make a lot of money at the circus! :D

Just kidding of course.

I think sometimes hills seem a lot worse then they actually are.
I'd have to say weed whack that area, and maybe look into suggesting a slower growing grass.

Do you mow Mt Everest? Its probably not that steep. Watch nascar? Bristol is banked at 33 i think, and you can barley walk up it.
