    The mile (or 1,500 meters of that is your standard measure).

    We've got a KutKwick 72 that will hold a 45 degree slope like glue. Find a good used one for 10 to 12K. The Lynex is 30K or better new. Lots of hillsides to pay for that puppy....................lynn

    Look at the National Mower Company. I used to use these at a golf course. If you can walk the hill without using your hands, it will climb it.
