    When mowing hills with a Walkbehind Should you mow sides ways or Up and Down????

    I wouldn't go sideways b/c you have much more of a chance of flipping the machine over. Besides, I think going sideways would make it harder to mow straight or do stripes.

    In my opion going sideways gives you more grip. Sure you have that chance of fliping it, but if you were smart enough and you though you would flip your machine you would push mow it. Anyways going up a steep hill can be a problem when the machine doesnt want to go anywhere but back on you, thats why all steep hills I go sideways.
