    How large is the hillside?
    If seen people tie a rope to the handle of a light 21" and stand up top of the hillside.

    Will a 21" hold the hill, We have a HOA with hills around a boat storage that we do with 21" Lawnboy 2 cyl. Faster than trimmers. We tried with our 21" prolines and they just flipped over. The walk behinds slid down.

    Hills can be a pain-- good luck with it.
