IMHO the Lt Rich line of products look nice as far as all stainless but the general opinion is that they are not the best machine for hills. I have used the turfco machine and would give it pretty high marks as far as comfort. Either LT Rich or Turfco would fit the bill. LT Rich is with locking caster as a must have.
I disagree on the Z Spray and hills. It's all about making sure you are turning uphill and know how to operate the machine without the speed bar. I've tackled some serious hills with my Max and I never use the locking casters. Don't need them.
