Very good job making this video. The standard Wright stander I'm using seems to do really well going up a hill but not as good going down or across (the ZK seem much better going down and across). Problem is I don't have a bottom to turn around on the hills I do. I watched (my distributor riding/demoing)a 61" ZK do the same hills as I do with the Turf Tiger only he spun a bit (but he may have had too much air in the tires) but the regular stander is sliding on the same slope the Turf Tiger (or ZK) does not slide on . Great video, that shows exactly what the ZK can do. Thanks....

Well done video. Machine looks well balanced, and seems to handle that hill well. Even the downhill 180.
