    We have one where I work. A walk behind brush cutter. Pretty durable, has a 11hp Honda pullstart. The throttle cables and blade clutch cables leave a little to be desired. The front skids wear fast, although we operate in a lot of sand so you may have a longer life span on them than we did. Belts and cables are the only items replaced so far.

    have no idea, its pretty flat down here, but some of our guys have run em on the sides of ditches without too much trouble. They have power and grab and go they say. Sorry I cant be more help on the hills.. I dont drive em. I just get to pick up all the pieces and put it back together!
