Not true. For example, red fescue doesn't need cutting, nor would I ever want to cut it.

I wondered if that sentence would come back to haunt me.

I'm coming up with 30° to 35° and that is steep. Most people run out of guts on a rider at about 20° to 25° and even the bravest won't do 30°. Good luck cutting it with a mower.

I'm looking at the last picture and it does'nt look that bad. As long as you have the right mower i could see this being mowed with a ZTR, the problem would be when you get to the top as far as getting on the level ground your definately gonna do a wheel stand.

I'm with you weaver. doesn't look bad at all. looks like an account I have that I do on a weekly basis with my 52" grandstand. I do a wheel stand sometimes once getting to the top.
