    I need help. I mow about 4 acres part of is a little steep but not bad. I was looking at a fastrak 20/52 Honda to do the job, what do you think? will this stress the mower too much? should I move up to a mini Z?

    How much of it is a slope? and what degree?
    You could be safe with the Mini Z, not sure about the slope though, they can get dangerous.

    Of the 4 acres about 1 is sloped at say 20% is this too much to ask of the Fastrak?

    We don't recommend anything to be cut over a 15 degree slope, so I would be real careful no matter what mower you get.
    But yes, 1 acre of sloped mowing is gonna heat up the hydros fast, no matter what your running, I would go with the Mini Z at a minimum.
