    my 777s are nearly 60" from wheel to wheel and ive put mine on hills that you have a hard time climbing , they operate smoothly on hills and hang on even on the steepest ! imo they are just as good as anything else maybe even better!!

    My walker with a 62" side discharge does ok. With the 42" GHS deck not so good. I back up the hills with the big deck. For really steep places, I use an Exmark walk behind

    Stander is the only way to go. Nothing will beat these machines on a hill.

    I have a SUPER Z 25 KA. 60'' deck and that thing will stay on a hill like glue!
    I did demo a Toro 52'' deck 23 Ko. on the same hill and that thing would not stay in place,kept heading to the bottom.The Hustler SUPER Z is awesome on a hill,flat ground or anything you decide to do. :waving:
