I don't know gene when you have to go the other direction the Walker just slides sideways. A lot of hilly stuff like ditch banks can't be cut up and down.

I am not happy with the width of my new 61" Gravely walk behind. The current are 8.5 inch wide. I am going to 10" wide with an aggressive tread. The above links are to the new wheels and tires. Good luck.

The poster was talking about a sloping back yard, not gullys or drainage ditch. Every mower has limitations but a mid-mount Z machine is very dangerous on slopes. My Hustler S/Z took me on a couple very wild slides at very unsispectingly times. It would slide on a small slope if the grass was damp when you least expect it to. Yes, the Walker does not do well going across a steep slop due to the weight shift but up and down you have compleat control.
