    I have noticed if the hill in saturated and at > 45 degrees the z might slide sideways. So go fast through this small section. It can pop wheelies once the 3-bager fills up, I don't use the weights, just cut the hill first. The stander won't stop quick if speeding downhill, slides. But just go slower if need to stop.

    We had a dealer here and they mowed lawns with them.

    Few years ago it was the thing to have. Now don't even see them. Dealer went out business

    My self I didn't think they had very good cut on turf fescue. Now bluegrass they did seem cut nice
    I did demo one on a Cemetery 16 acres all hill mowing. It wouldn't climb on all 4 wheels. My DC would climb all the hills on all 4 wheels . I wanted something for my guys to run to be safer for them. I'm only one will mow steep hills on my DC

    In the end I pick a WB trimstar but in the end I didn't win the bid
    City used my bid to budget there own crew

    are you talking about the aerocore deck? i know on my 36 playing around with different blades is what it took to get it to cut nice. just seems like the wrights are alot less complicated and alot more robust than others, plus i just plain don't like standing above the mower like on grandstands and vrides. i seem to see a bunch of wrights around here, whether or not they are the aerocore decks or not i don't know. i've heard removing the baffle makes a difference. i'll play with it some, try some different things and be sure to report back.
