    I wanted to know what mowers go with what terrain?
    (ex. would I use a belt fixed deck for hilly lawns Ect...)

    Belts will runaway with you downhill. :( Wish I had a hydro, (its on my wish list):D .

    Now Geo, put on your thinking cap;) "What goes up, must come down". At some time you have to come back down the hill, and you ain't gonna back down a belt machine are ya?????

    Hydros are much better on hills. Either the standard configuration walk-behind hydro or a stand-up type hydro would both be excellent choices.
