    I have one that is about like that bit at the bottom is a major US Hwy have no where to run in case we get in trouble have had to get my wife to remove the seat from my bottom a couple of times not scared of the hill but sure have respect for it .Sorta like when I was a gasoline tanker transport driver you load 9200 gals of gas loved hauling it was not scared of it but had the highest respect for it

    Looks about as steep as the yard on my last house (that we sold in '99).
    I got to mow that yard FOR FREE! :cry: :laugh:

    I'd say between 35-40 degrees. Pretty steep but the 52" looks like it holds the slope pretty well. I wouldn't be up there with a 36", that's for sure.

    I would guess 35% but pictures can be misleading. Some of the pictures look steeper depending on the angle. I wouldn't try it but I bet my tiger would mow that horizontally. Cut at a bit of an angle and I'm sure a tt would do it. Dry of course.
