Mowing Hills

I am bidding on a commercial property that has very steep hills and smaller hills w/ angle's. I have a 36" WB, can I use the WB to mow the hills . I think I might be able to if I don't use my sulky and mow at a low speed. What advise can you give me?


Thanks,
gcbama

Wb are great for hills.

A lot less nerve wrecking then a Z, especially if its along the water.

use a walkbehind and mow across the hill, just have to slow down a bit. i mow a few that are pretty steep, not the favorite thing to do, but isnt bad when u get use to it.

If it is a big(area) hill then look at a wright stander, other than that a walkbehind will work fine.
