    Here's some of the slopes I mow...It's hard to tell the steepness by the pictures but they can get nasty sometimes...I do this one with the old 36" belt drive Bobcat walkbehind...

    That's a decent slope. Our exmark is absolutely horrible on hills. I think it has to do with the bagging system but we never use it without the bagger so I don't know. My friend has a Ferris and it holds hills really well, unfortunately that's just about the only thing it does well...

    Oh yeah those are steep.

    I luckily never have to deal with those its all flat here.

    Would you charge mor if you have to bring out the wb on a property like that?

    Why would you bag all that acerage?

    I know it doesn't matter to you, as I'm sure you get paid by the hour, but...

    I would mow much more of those slopes on my old Lazer, and almost all of them on the SuperZ.....it's like a spider on hills.

    LOL!! Come on guys, thats not a hill.. I could mow that with a push mower. Now I have hills that you can only use weed-eaters. and you have to watch your step so you don't go sliding over the hill.
