    Sorry that I didnt find this site before I ordered one. Ran me down the hill yesterday. Ordered new mulching blades for the thing. Guess that I am stuck with it now. Anyone have advice on how to steer this thing? Thanks

    can you mow hills from side to side?

    hills are commonly mowed this way.

    You can try mowing side to side, but if the slope is steep enough it will want to go down. It's not much fun trying to physically man handle a 3-400 lb. lawn mower on a slope. Sounds like you already found out there is no way to stop it once it gets going down hill.:eek:
    I started out with one for small gates and other areas my Lazer wouldn't reach. I thought it was useless unless the lawn was relatively flat and traded it in. Now, instead of a 21" on slopes too steep for the Lazer, I use my 36" walkbehind.

    They DONT mow any thing but flat break out the 21" for the hills.

    I only have 2 small hills I mow that is what I do.

    I am buying 2 new Exmarks as soon as I get the $$$
