    Yardsmith, If you have a 60&quot; or bigger Dixie Chopper, a 45 degree hill is not a problem. It will handle it up and down or sideways. A 60&quot; has a 59&quot; wheel base and is very stable. A 72&quot; has a 71&quot; wheel base. It is the width of the wheel base that is important, not so much how high you sit. A 36 inch ZTR with a low center of gravity is terrible on hills. A slight incline is bad with them, I had one.<p>----------<br>&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.townserver.com/elm/&quot;&gt;Eric@ELM&lt;/a&gt;<br>
