    This is what I keep in my tractor at all times and use quite frequently, just place on surface and adjust dial on right till bubble shows level and it will tell you the degree of slope.

    Default Re: Rate this Slope

    Knowing exactly what slope you are on is interesting, but knowing what amount of slope the tractor will tolerate is pretty important as well. I'd imagine the latter is almost impossible to determine with the differences in ballast, tires, equipment connected to the tractor, etc.

    This is an area in my back yard that I have cut with a BX25 and a b2620. Both had 54" mmm's. I also used a 5' rfm at times with the b2620. The rfm would drag the rear of the b down hill at times.

    Lots of great info on this thread. Don't forget how variables of the environment play a factor( humidity, temp, time of year, ground condition). I've made the mistake of getting too comfortable in an area that I thought I knew well and have been blessed to have avoided a mishap. Also note that an FEL makes a great braking device going up or down.
