That is one cool looking place. I'm sure it would be a pain to mow!

That looks like a nightmare of a place to mow, How many acres is it any idea?? i would have to get atleast 600-700+ bucks per time from the few pics i see. Probably more as im sure its bigger then the pics show.

Oh dang yea thats a big one for sure. Didnt look like 16 acres in the pics. You need to get a premium to mow them,Its a complete hassle and horrible time to trim a grave yard. I have been mowing one for 8 years and want to kill myself everytime i go there.

Those hills dont look that bad. We mow 6 or so cemetarys and 2 have banks just as steep but longer. Exmark walk behind does great on them, but we usually use the scag v ride it does good aswell as the toro grandstand, just gotta know how to drive em.

Banks wouldnt be bad these are Ridges that runs 900' long steep side 70'
most are 2-1 or 3-1 slopes
My Dixie choppers will climb it did a test run Drive up back down
If spaces was wider I use it but there about 2/3 of it my 60'' mowers wont drive thru so thought in tight ares the WB be good
Demo a Wright stand on mower and Dealer said probly wouldn t work and it didn t work The dealer dont carry a WB wright
I'll call the Exmark dealer try a WB see if it works

I would try a 52" exmark turf tracer with a 23 or 24 hp kawi, even check out the new kohler fuel injected model. That way you will have the stability of a wide track walkbehind, plenty of power to climb up and down hills, and still be able to fit into tight spots.
