    i found a mower for slopes to water. [​IMG]
    model 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 60°. The HVT52 has very low vibration levels in the handle and the trimmer line can be easily replaced.

    My parents have a very similar hover mower, called "Flymo". Used it for many years, still running now after around 30 years.

    To cut a steep hill, put a rope around the handle and feed the mower slowly down the hill, swinging it like a pendulum.

    Works very well as long as there are no trees or bushed for the rope to snag.

    If you like you can travel up here n I'll sell you mine .... almost new .... maybe 10 hrs .... $250 Cash

    It seems like a great tool ...but I found it bulky n ackward to get to the edges .... when not running it doesn't float so it's a pain moving it ... it's dead weight

    It'd be cool so fabricate some sort of bracket to mount it to the side of a Z .... kinda like a Flexi-deck

    If you want it PM me ... I'm just out side of Cocoa Beach
