i am looking for a better way to mow a steep bank or ditch.
How are you mowing it now?
More info please:
how long is it
is it weeds, grass, etc
--from above, how are you doing it now
Depending on these: use a smaller w/b if i can, if not then a 21" self propelled w/b, if not that then with the trimmer.
Maybe you should look into something like this.

Why in the heck hasn't flexdeck posted here yet?
We use 21" mowers on the lesser slopes and for the real bad ones we whip out the trimmers.
Sub it out!!!!
My 52" hydro fixed deck Scag w/b and sulky will go anywhere. Anything else I use the Stihl FS80 straight shaft while standing on a more level surface and reaching out one handed hovering method. It's my personal opinion that the Scag actually sticks to a real tight hill better than a 21" because of it's weight and contact area (tires) and also it requires less manual control. If you are using a 21" on banks/hills it has to be a rear drive self propelled. Front drive is useless and push type is just as bad.
