    Those yellow deck JDs are prone to tranny problems. Even more prone when using a sulky. They are expensive to replace I hear.

    BS. You're lucky if you can stand on a slope that severe much less run a mower on it.
     
  4. Rodfather is right, you can't stand on a 45 degree slope. In fact, at 34 degrees, most people have to reach for the ground to motivate. To my eyes, 30 degree slopes "look" like 45 degree slopes.

    Mowing anything that steep (45 degrees) with a Lesco sulky would be frightening to say the least.
