Never at any point when climbing some steep slopes does the front end ever hint at lifting (but I am only 145lbs wet)....backing down slopes either straight down or on a angle then traversing up always keeping the front pointed slightly to fully up slope is the way I will work it and it sticks like glue.

The Hydrostatic drive is frikken awesome...the more I get use to it, the more I love it ....very very precise in execution...move the levers and it responds now with no free wheelin at any point.

So next week I will figure out the angles I am working on on this one property to give a better idea

So far lovin the machine and yup love this standing thing much better than sitting

Well engineered Gravely
Do you have any large properties? I'm wondering how it will be standing for a while at a time.

Mine would be my main mower along with a walk behind.

I can get a 52 pro stance and a 34 walk behind plus other stuff for 11k
