I had a Badboy loaner this season and it did better on slopes than my regular ZTR.

Gravely or hustler. Gravely make a stand on and walk behind ZTR Hustler makes a Walk Behind ZTR. I wouldn't consider any sit on units for slopes. What about a Wright?

two more pictures do you all think some kinda ventrac slope mower would be better ?
there is about 10 acres that have alot of slopes around some pounds so I dont think walk behinds will cut it time wise.

I would do it with a Hustler myself, but I would want an ATZ for that location if it was me.
