Good stuff guys. No, I would not use this on hilly lawns. Just small resi's, in place of a backpack. For all you that say just cover with a backpack, that is exactly what I am trying to get away from. IT KILLS YOUR SHOULDERS. And I am not buying a skid. No need for one. With a ride on and a simple solution to cover small lawns, should be set without something as non portable as a skid.
