    20210511_143710~3.jpg if any you guys mow steep hills flip up those roll bars if your mower is equipped, be safe.. This hill is little steeper than the picture shows

    I hope your not speaking from experience!:eek:
    I don't see how you get a ZT on that hill unless your going down it... rather quickly I'd imagine lol

    I mow that weekly for 25 years now sideways .IF its not wet there's a pond about 70 yards down. One of them places you could pinch a hole in the seat :)

    I mow about a 1/2 mile sliding sideways on tractor tires. That hill doesn't bother me, from its looks. Parts that I can't stay on, I go back diagonally, as best I can.

    The hill coming into my place is comparable to that and I don’t have the balls to try my new to me/used cub cadet tank-m with cleated tires on it. If the front end noses down hill in the slightest bit you ain’t stopping. I feel safer on my little home owner John Deere z225 and I don’t even attempt it with that. I guess I’m a puss

    I guess ima puss too, making some grass look pretty aint worth dying for to me. Id plant it in hairy vetch and let it grow.

    I didn't mean for this to be a pissing contest on how steep of a hill we can mow, rather about safety of putting up roll bars if the mower has them.. I tell my guys if they aren't comfortable mowing something DON'T I'll get it later ....
    BE SAFE!!

    I agree. I wouldn't ask anyone to mow a hill they weren't comfortable doing. Use a push mower or weedeater
