I saw a guy doing that on a steep bank in front of his house. Instead of letting it down and pulling it back up he was walking across the top on the flat and mowing horizontal. I was driving by so I didn't get a great look but it looked like he had fabricated some bars to the deck to keep it from flipping. He had also removed the handle.
