I am demo-ing a JD 35D ZTS mini excavator and feel a bit uncomfortable on hills. What is the best way to go up and down a slope in a mini? Going up I extended the bucket as far forward and as low as possible so it didn't feel like I would tip backwards, but I used the same method for going downhill in case I started to tip forward, the arm would keep me from rolling forward. I just would really like to know from real excavator operators the best way to travel up and down inclines. Other than that, as a homebuilder, this is a GREAT piece of equipment. I got this machine straight from the factory with all of 2 hours on it. I know I am going to buy it, I just want to know how to drive it better! Thanks!
