    I love this digital camera. I wish I would have bought it earlier in the year.
    I mow these properties weekly and now do leaf clean up here. I'll have a couple more different shots later in the week. The Walker does these hills with no problems. Up or down, side to side it dont matter, it does it.

    Holy smokes Batman, if those got just a LITTLE wet they'd be treacherous. OH GREAT, and when you do fall you end up in a lake. Only one mountain goat I'd ride on those hills......WALKER!

    I could stick the Exmark on those. It has to be hard to handle when you get the hopper full on the Walkers and are sideways on a hill. Hope you dont take a swim in that lake while mowing:D

    boy, i wish i had some pictures from this summer. I worked for somebody part time this summer to fill up the rest of my week, and we mowed this condo complex with the biggest hills. I used a 52 inch hydro scag walkbehind on these things, and it was nuts. Youd have to walk underneath the mower literally holding the handlebars above your ahead. Spring time was crazy. any time it rained, the mower would want to slide right down the hills. I can put my exmarks on steep short hills, but i wouldnt want to mow those pics above with it.

    Not to be a braggart, show-off or know it all, but to be honest those don't look that impressive. Yes they're decent size and steep enough to require just alittle more attention and consideration, but no big deal.
    The only pic of a hill I've seen that would really scare me is that one sound barrier (I think thats what it was) in LGF's backyard. That one would make me think twice. With a ZTR I definately wouldn't try it but a walk behind I would. I've heard he uses both on it :cool: I have a steep area of my hill but no camera to take a pic with right now.

    This is about the limit for my walker. Up and down only.
