K5lwq,Tallguy, are you sure the manual says to back up the hill and drive down? That is exactly opposite of what I would do. I try to keep the weight on my back wheels as much as possible.
I would drive up the hill and back down the hill always in 4WD and slow.
A tractor will roll backwards very easily doing that, drive forward down a hill and back up it is the safest way! (If you have seen the animated movie "Cars", the tractor tipping scene would explain this very easily!)
