    I believe this is simply a bad choice of equipment, which perpetuates the mentality that this industry is nothing but uneducated, simpleminded fools on mowers.

    Low bidders rarely have the appropriate equipment. This is why the boom mower was invented.:usflag:

    Way too dangerous. Without rops and a seat belt buckled, they should have not even considered mowing like that. :hammerhead:

    that was not all that bad. I do hills just like that. Their issue was that they gas mowers and they don't have the weight over the rear axle like my diesel. My kubota zd 326 has about 1400 lbs sitting on the rear axle so I would not of slid. Actually the kubota is so stable that the sod will under your tires will give way before you slide. Really when your use to it, those hills are not that bad. By the way, the reason why you go sideways is because if you go straight up then if you pull a wheely you might go over straight backwards. That would be way worse than a role over.
