    Default Of hills and the tilt factor

    We all have them.....
    the hill....
    the pucker factor.....
    the how much is too much.....

    So, I would like to SEE them.....
    let me see your hill and tractor with degrees. I want to get an idea of your equipment and your spunk.
    When the fog burns off, I am running out back to snap my hill shot.

    nice country ... but it is hard to judge how steep that is from the vantage point you took it. it looks like someone mowed along the side of the hill. if you can put that machine on the side of the hill, a protractor, a plum weight w string will give you and indication what your incline is. than look up your owners manual and see what your engine is rated at as far as % of incline ... lub factor before pucker factor is my swiss mountain goat instinct. your engine got you there and must get you safely out of there.
