I've searched and read tons of info. However, I need a little more specific information and reassurance. I am looking at purchasing a Samurai 36" with KAW motor. I have a few accounts that this mower would be used for the steeper areas, and a couple of accounts that I would use this solely instead of my MINI-Z. I have one yard in particular that I had to finish the season using my 21". The back yard is steep (25-30 degrees), rarely gets sun (always wet and slick), and has a chain link fence at the bottom of it. Twice this year I slid into the fence (no damage to fence, mower, or me), just some rattled nerves. I also have another yard which I use the 21" that is at least 35 degrees, if not more. Neither of these lawns would be prudent to go up and down the hill. I WANT AND NEED to go sideways ACROSS the hills. I'm short, but not a small guy. I can muster up some muscle...just don't wanna get aggravated at the mower having to fight it constantly. I figure if I want to stay in this business and provide quality service, and safe for me...I need to invest in a hydro WB. I've been VERY impressed with all the comments about these mowers...and have nearly made up my mind that this is the route I want to take. BUT, I just don't want to make this investment and find out it won't work for me or is more effort that fighting the 21". I'm looking for something that provides a great cut (I know the Q36 does), will work on these hills, etc. PLEASE...any comments or ANYTHING would be greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone has any PICTURES of you using your Q36 on hills showing the slope would be great. THANKS!!
