Went to a local dealer. He had a nice 34" Gravely for $2100, but it may be more than I need. He had a Billy Goat and a Simplicity Pacer and confirmed that neither would handle the hills well. However, they had something called a Worldlawn 28" 10.5 HP mower that looked pretty good and it had individual wheel control to handle the hills. Plus the smaller size seems much more manuverable aroundmy property. I did a search here for this mower and noboday seems to know anything about it. At $1200 and an ideal size, plus the ability to handle the slope, I probably will take a chance on this mower. That is, unless some of you have had poor experiences with one like it. Thanks!
