Slopes

OK Those are some pretty bad slopes. I have a couple of accounts w/ slopes that are ridiculous and the mowers that I use that work the best are my 54" Lesco ZTWO it has 24'x12'x12' tires and a wide wheel base and believe it or not a John Deere 48" Quik Track, that thing holds a hill like nobodys business. It takes some time to learn how to manouver it but after a while it becomes second nature.

not holding a straight line

for a w b to hold a straight line you need to have good belts and the correct belt adjustments. i have found many lawn operaters, never - never adjust there belts, they just talk trash on their equipment. also for most w - b that are used hard every season you should replace your drive belt every season, it's such a small price to pay to make your life a lot more comfertable. be a pro.

Dont wright standers do okay on hills
