    12g gravely,pt 422

    Default old steiner

    when we had to take my 422 to get some work done on it,he was telling me how steep it was where he was mowing. so we went to look at it and sure enough, it was a 1 to 1. he told me he couldn't go side ways on it but he could go up and down.
    it has dual wheels all around and it's pushing a 60" deck and it only has 16 hp. diesel. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

    That's steep. Even if the PT could go 45 degrees, the Kohler is only rated for 25 degrees or oil starvation might occur. Maybe we need aerobatics engines for inverted operation, like stunt planes. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I looked at the steiners and ventracs before I bought my 422, they are good machines but they are a lot more expensive than the 422 was and lacked the lift height for front attachments and the attachments are not as easy to change as they are belt driven. They have a 2 speed transaxle to give them the power on hills.
