    was wondering from u guys that have them how well they do long slopes around 30-35 grade? do they slide a lot?i can use a lazer on these hills but have to always mow long ways. got a scag walk-behind but iv'e got about 4 places in a row just wondering about stander or another walk-behind to speed up the time there. tried a jd stander did not like it at all. are the wright standers a lot different?

    I have used the old style Great Dane which was such a close copy of a wright. Wright took Great Dane to court and had them stop making it and yes the one I used was great on slopes and the best thing is if you lose control of it you can jump off, way safer than a ZTR for that reason in my opinion.

    A guy here in North Carolina was supposed to post some pictures of the stuff he is doing with his. But I haven't seen anything yet. I'll have to dig that back up and ask him.....

    I'll try and find some pics of ours on some hills in here in WV. You should have no problems on 30-35 degree hillsides. I have one commercial account that is all hillside in front, about 320' long by 125' deep that is mowed with no problems. As with any other mower, wet slopes can be problematic, but under normal mowing conditions you should not slide at all.
