Working on a 41* slope...

We are designing a job where we need to build 48 stone steps into a hill leading down to a lake. This is a very steep, tight lot. The slope has a 41 percent slope.

My question is, will my pc150 be able to hold the slope? What I am going to do is get the machine facing up and down on the slope. All my stone and gravel will get dumped into the bucket of the excavator with my skid, and then ill run the excavator back up the hill. Will I have problems with the machine on such a steep slope?
