Go and get one of those.
They are the best on hills.
that's about right orangemower
any self propeled/ hydro walk behind. Are you talking 21"er or a 36/48" ???
i was looking at 36",but not sure.there are alot of places i could use a 36". the banks are not long but steep. dont know now ,the property i was gonna get,the manager said she was afraid to tell the guy thats mowing it that she didnt want his service.so that got shot in the dark for now.but i still need one anyway.thanks
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 have a 52" scag hydro that sticks to some crazy hills I have to mow in NH. Turf master tires.
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.
