    Desire information about Steiner and Ventrac equipment.

    We need a lawn tractor that will rapidly mow 2-5 acres some on a 40 degree slope. I have recently looked at Steiner 430s with 48 and 60 inch mower decks.

    Please advise pros and cons

    Thank you in advance

    the stiener 430 with the double wheels and a 48 deck will handle your slope, no problem.
    they will pretty much go anywhere. nice stripe with a roller behind the deck.
    low center, articulating frame, get the ag tires not the turf tires.
    i think they have changed the exhaust pipe position on the newer ones.
    nice machines.
    ventracs, i have heard good things but no experience w/ them.
