    Believe it or not Gravley had one like that, Don't know if they still do or not.

    Those are being sold by a dealer in the county I live in. I passed them the other day on my way back from the Kubota dealer that's literally right next to Ridge View... I just had to stop to take a look. They are cool for sure... I've seen the Va Game Commission using them a couple of times mowing a large dam on a lake near me. Never seen one on a trailer around here though. I'll have to stop by there next time I'm at the Kubota dealer and see what their sales pitch is.

    our city here has one of those. I see it on a trailer behind a city truck once in a while in the summer but have yet to ever see it in use anywhere! Most all the ditches that the wing mowers can't get they weed-eat with big sthil trimmers and backbreaking labor! Where they use the slope mower I have yet to see. lol

    Yup. They use to mow the bridge banks on the interstates with one a few years ago. It will hold the hills for sure.

    That company made them for Gravely to sell through the Gravely dealer network for a couple of years. It was the same machine with a Gravely nameplate on it. for whatever reason, the deal did not work out and Gravely parted ways with them.
