This one belongs to - ME! taken a year ago or so maybe....yes this tractor goes right up it no problem not even a hint of front end lift. It's heavy and very well balanced. I always mow it going downward on that steepest part but it slides. I just did this to show for pictures. Just digging through the archives and spotted this. This is when you appreciate pressure lubrication on your engine especially this 20hp twin Onan!
