    HVT52
    The Husqvarna HVT52 hover trimmer floats on a cushion of air! This model is suitable for professional work in difficult terrain. The four-stroke engine can be used on slopes of up to 45°. The HVT52 has very low vibration levels in the handle and the trimmer line can be easily replaced.

    I saw one today at a dealer and was wandering how good it would be for trimming large banks/steep slopes.
    Has anyone seen or used one....what do you think?

    With all the hills you got down there CK it would probably come in handy. I am buying one this year just for slopes. I have seen the Eastman hover mower in action and it does a good job. No wheel tracks either.

    There is a guy here in town that uses one of these to mow some deep drainage areas that are on his properties that he maintains. I think they work great if you keep the areas mowed every week or two. If the grass gets too tall i think this machine will have a hard time with it and you would be better off cutting it back down with a hand held string trimmer. Back to the guy here in town that uses one the ditches that he does are not too deep about 6 foot deep and he just walks along the rim hangs on to the handle and just swings it up and down the side of the hill looks like a realy slick way of doing it. Id like to have one but i only have a few properties that i could use it on but for now ill stay with my walk behinds even though they are a pita.

    Id say thats a pretty good deal on it for some reason i was thinking that most of the hover mowers i had seen were around 900 or a 1000
