Almost sounds like you're describing my yard. You didn't post a photo, but 25 degrees is pretty steep to take a ZTR on. Mine is also about that steep in places and I won't do it on those areas. Some of the pros might, but not me. And the guys who work for the LCO who do my neighbor's lawn, which has a slope that isn't quite as steep as mine, don't either. They use a walk behind mower. If you are thinking of using the ZTR you buy on that slope, I'd suggest you first demo the one you have your eye on. I hope it will do what you want, but I supect it won't, in which case you'll also need something else for the 25-degree areas.
