I just bought my first Hydro machine (Lesco 48" Float). I had been using a JD WB gear driven for years. I am not familiar with the techniques of mowing with the Hydro. I have property with 25 - 30 degree hills, some parts are very narrow. With the JD on the narrow parts I would go side to side without turning. (Once it would get facing down hill it was big trouble.) On the hills with long stretches (300 feet) I would cut across the hill top to bottom, reversing and backing down to the next stripe. With the Hydro I am not sure what is the best way. I thought I could go up and down on the narrow part but it seems to want to runaway. On the long stretchs I am not sure which is best top to bottom or bottom to top. When I turn should I have one lever forward and one reversed to do a zero turn? Thanks in advance for your help.
