I have a 48" model and it performs better on hilly terrain for me, most of the time, than my turf tracer hp. I am ab 265lbs though. My smaller riders have a much harder time w it on hills than I do. Having alot of weigh on the riding platform transfers into weight over the wheels.
So... Depending on the weight of the operator, this mower can be an advantage or disadvantage on hills.
In every other circumstance though (other than weight on the turf) I prefer the GS. Superb cutting and speed combo. Much more power to the deck than the wbs ive used, though I've never had bigger than a 16 hp on my wbs. Would be interesting to compare w larger motored wb's.
