This yard is intense, the pictures really don't do a good job of showing how steep it really is. I will be honest this yard is scary. I rode the whole thing not one problem hanging on the hills. Only flat part is at the bottom.

That's a crazy property. There's definitely some nice houses in the Carmel area.

that looks like alot of hills i do on a reg basis. very impressive though. i got to use the new intermediate the other day and do my worst hill(have to take a pic still< maybe a video) and it is equipped withthe new locking casters. i can do this very well without them and have many atime, but i can now assure anyone that the locks on the front end are pretty much the cats meow. i did not have one bit of slippage and it honestly felt too easy!!!! GOOD move for zspray!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its a awesome feature! The homeowner came out to watch, he was really impressed. He said I wouldn't do that, I flipped my mower on those hills!

Steep hills no doubt, but no pics showing actual "45 degree slopes"???. 30 degree slopes maybe???? PG's don't hold a candle, and Z-Sprays are fine units for sure, but they're "zero-turn".... most mowing guys know the limitations with respect to zero-turn units. Only unit we have tried that will actually go up & down a 45 degree slope safely is a "
T3000" . I'll bet the farm on this. My 2 cents, cuz we have gone up & down 45 degree hills (at the same speed) with our T3000 units. BTW we gave serious time (several hours) on other units. These units include Permagreens, Z-Sprays (all sizes), LESCO HPS, LESCO Z-two.

Our 2 cents worth.
