    Have 05 Fastrak 20/52.........generally does pretty well on the hills since it's low and wide which is why I bought the mower originally. I never feel unsafe on my hill, never mow when even slightly moist, but still slip a little bit.

    Any pro tips on how to to increase traction on my 15 degree grade front yard?

    I've read previous posts about "Slime" being added to the tires at the factory....how do I tell if this was already done to my fastrak?

    Your mower is about as good as it gets on hill's being as low as it is, you could try a bar tread type tire, it may help.
    You just need to be very careful on hills.
    As far as a tire sealant in your FasTrak, we have not put it in FasTraks for a while now, we only put it in our commercial mowers from the factory.
