Ok. The title may be overly dramatic, but I have a real problem. I have a Hustler Fastrack Honda 20hp/52" deck that I got back when I lived on 1.5 acres. My job has since moved me and my yard is now normal residential size. The problem is that we back up to a creek. In the back yard, it slopes about 30 degrees until it drops about 20 feet into the creek at about 60 degrees. The 30 degree part is grass and the 60 degree is wild. I love my Hustler, but it is not designed for this. I want to mow the 30 degree hill and avoid careening down the 60 degree hill into the creek. I've managed to limp by for 2 years now, but in that time I've "lost it" about a half dozen times and ended up winching the mower out of the drink. Not to mention the exciting ride down! The best method I've found for mowing the 30 degree part is by backing down the slope and then mowing up--never turning sideways to the slope. This is, to say the least, cumbersome. Well, I'm tired of tempting fate. Two questions. How much should my FastTrack bring in trade and what should I replace it with. Money is definetely an issue and I would love it if there was an even trade option. Thanks for your help!!!!!
