    These things are called inclinometers and are not typically used on ztr's for the simple reason that ztr's will slide way before they roll.

    Yes... I used to use a slope meter... much simplier one though.

    Magnetic... stick it on...
    Regular needle/dial indicator...

    I bought a digital angle gauge yesterday.
    It has a magnetic base and is pretty small, I'm gonna check some of the slopes I go on... :cool2:

    Here is the link to it: Digital Angle Gauge link
