    Hustler Makes a 104”
    A couple of those could do a contract like that without too much trouble
    Probably about $35k for the pair of them

    They’re fast as Fudge on the flat stuff too

    A zero on that steep of an incline..... Never seen one that'd stay the angle.

    Well you’ve never stated how steep the angle is
    A tractor is a pretty high center of gravity
    You’ve also not used a 104” ztr before
    They’re pretty darn wide

    Why recommend something that isn't made for steep slope mowing?
    And you already know that he has never tried using your recommendation? Mind reader too! How do you do it?

    My recommendation would be something more along the line of a Ventrac. Designed to do the type of cutting the op needs to do. That Hustler would be going for a ride down the bank on the first attempt and probably cause serious injury to the poor guy that was going with your idea.

    Huh? There's only one dam thread about just mowing.

    Then there's 1 dam thread with spraying and mowing.

    Then's there's a thread about spraying, but no dam.

    Sedge,
    You ditched us for 2 years, now you want answers !
    Just kidding.

    For volume mowing like that, I'd be around $3400 each time.

    How is the equipment paid for if hes working cheap? And just because its paid for doesnt mean you work cheap, that equipment will wear out and need to be replaced eventually.
