    That's a really really REALLY generic statement. You need to be a little more specific. You could be dealing with Rocky Mountain hills, East TN hills, etc. Also the 21" mower would be the safest but...

    I'm in TN, for our hills 48". Try to get your local dealer to let you demo some. Try to stick with Toro, SCAG or Exmark. JD only if absolutely no other choice.

    I'll stick with what I told you. 48 has enough weight to it. If you deal with places like Harlan and Corbin, etc. then you really should consider getting both the 48 and 21 in push. No joke.
