    I'd be designing myself some outriggers for that there machine. I get a little woosy on really steep slopes with a really long trip to the bottom. :eek: :eek:

    that not only is a steep hill, it is a tall hill! :eek:

    it looks like an earthen dam and I believe the mower is a KWICK-KUT...right?

    second look, I dunno.......

    I love cutting these hills, we do quite a bit of rough mowing and a lot of dam sites in the area here. It's always fun to get out there if you have the right stuff and make it look nice! here's a pic of one of ours doing a sediment basin slope, not too steep but enough...

    You know, one of the first things I ever learned about mowing was not to go straight up a hill.
