i am not sure flatlander but do you not use the weights on the big dog? if you take it off you should get much better traction.....also on hills going side ways try...doing them with full tanks of fuel and slide your seat back as far as possible.... if your weights are on the mower its almost impossible the hill cut.the real trick si to keep the front wheels way above the rear ones.......about 45 degrees up hill, it makes for ok stripes.....but gets you finish

i feel sorry for you guys and walkers.....6700 gets a MB here.....what are you paying there?.....pics look good

I was lifting tires with the weights on....wouldn't that really make the front come up, like dangerously high?

not really .....if it is safe to mow in the first place.......understandi dont know your hills so i cant say...but i have never had a wide mower flip on a smooth hill....and it is common for the high wheel to bobble due to light weight. it is all about balance over the rear wheels and anything up front is a negative .

Well, my buddy got the old radiator out last night and the new one 85% put in. Should be buttoned up tonight! After using the truck/van for a few weeks I sure do miss it allready!

Leaked all the way across the top. Between the plastic and aluminum. The guys that I got it from must have gave me a scab there too....nice.
