    I am just starting out and have been biding on jobs. Some have steep banks. What is the best thing to use on these jobs.

    A Brown,

    We don't recommend any riding mowers for slopes greater than 15 degrees and no walk behinds for slopes greater than 20 degrees.

    Your best bet would be a hydro walk behind. The Turf Tracer is probably our best hillside machine. The Turf Tracer HP and Viking hydro are pretty equal to each other in terms of stability.
