I have actually tipped a 62" sd walker over on this same slope, threw me off and I rolled down the hill on my arse. Luckily the machine stayed upright and the hydros kept it from running down the hill after me, it kind of just slid down slow and controlled.

I would trust the 3100 on any slope that you can physically mow with a rider.

I think technically the suspension should give better hillside stability, which supports what you say. In the world of cars & atv's Im certain they will hold a hill better with suspension than without. No difference for a ZTR IMO.

You were lucky to get out of that incident without being hurt!
