    :eek: Just watch out for the "WHITE KNUCKLE EXPRESS TO THE BOTTOM AND IN THE LAKE. :eek: I remember the first and only time that my lazer started to slide down the hill. I had read all the posts about turning up the hill but made a mistake and turned the wrong way. I luckily stopped it and got my lazer out of that mess before there was real trouble!!!:cry:

    I have a new Lazer HP 52 and it is really good on hills, within reason. Its actually got a lower seat height than the other lazers, which with my weight (~220 lb) has to mean a lower center of gravity. Of course, I'm not going to be a daredevil, but within reason, I'm far more concerned that its dry enough for the mower to maintain traction than I am about it tipping over. mow money is right, watch out for the "WHITE KNUCKLE EXPRESS TO THE BOTTOM AND IN THE LAKE."

    long as its not to wet i shouldnt have any problems.
    the grade is steep but not so that its taken a chance every time

    Mine does really good with hills also. Hills and pretty steep grades don't really scare me. But I sure will NOT get on one early in the A.M. I've hit a few wet spots and you do skip a few heartbeats.

    And make sure there ain't no sharks in that lake! Hate to have to jump in a pull you out!
     
  8. I have more sliding problems when it's dry than when it's wet on my 60" Lazer. I think the tire needs something to bite into.
