Mine handles all my hills very well for the most part it just takes time to learn the machine and how to operate it on the hills

I agree with you on that. The one thing,when I first got the v-ride, that took some learning, was handling on wet moss. got the machine stuck once or twice...not fun, but probly my own fault! However, I love the v-ride... can't find fault with it

Oh I definately buried mine within the first week I had mine in my back yard. But ever since I upgraded the tires on my little one I haven't had the tires slip once on me and have yet to bury my big one but that is probly bc I had a year to learn with my smaller one first.

hey what tires did you switch to? Mine seem to not have much traction- like I said, especially on moss and hills. And you don't want to bury a big one... I can hardly move mine when it's stuck. needed 2x4s to get it unstuck!

I haven't gotten it stuck yet, it has the bigger tires though. I have torn up some turf, just had to learn to slow down a little

The 36" had 18-8.5-8 I believe in the stock style tire. And I use 2x4's also to get it unstuck. And my 52" had stock tires but I haven't come close yet to really buring it though. I wouldn't use the 36" without the bigger tires now. Night and day in the difference especially for only $100
