    I've learned not to take on accounts that I can't put my standers on, or if they are small enough I just throw the 21" on them.

    Where I mow my steepest is a 25 degree incline. Most people who want a 60" mower do not want to walk. I have pictures to show the 25 degree incline. Any steeper, and my Exmark would not go up.

    The offered price on a 61" hydro was hard to pass up.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Any of you guys used a slope mower before? I saw one a while back and was pretty impressed. No more walking on the edge of a hill with a little 21".

    I just returned the Pro Stance demo I have been using the last week. I was very impressed with the machine for the most part. I had the older version before the update. I thought the cut quality was good and the ride was nice and soft. It handled the little hills I had with ease. You can see pics and my review under the post called "Gravely"

    I haven't tried the new Gravely unit with the flip up stand, however, I have tried the Toro GrandStand / Exmark Vantage machines and found that I don't care for them because when you flip the stand on plate to the "up" position and use it as a WB ... you have to stay so close to the machine that the shins of your legs hit the rear of the machine ... needless to say, it hurts !!

    That is the reason I didn't buy one and I think that is the reason that WB's will never be "obsolete" ... they're just to useful.

    Hey GMLC, Ridin Green and Olmod

    Did you guys get a chance to use the stander as a walk behind?

    Only good on flat ground as a walk behind. Just not enough traction without weight on the rear wheels if mowing hills.
