Do you go uphill forward or reverse.So this is just one of the steep hills I cut with my ZT (ZD331). I used to mow across it, but found it was much better going up and down.
Pictures dont do it justice, but it’s pretty steep. Lose control and you go for a swim with the snapping turtles.
I have never felt like I couldn’t stop, under control going straight down at the pond. Going uphill, it’s easy as a walk in the park.
I believe it has a lot to do with the mower's weight distribution. Some have a lower % weight on the rear driving wheels, so going up would not be a problem, some have higher % so they may be 'more tippy'. I have an 1800 lb JD 997 and can do anything I want, except get the "lower" wheel close too close while driving along the edge of the pond (gets soft or muddy and looses traction). I have determined that for mine the front gets very light once it points uphill at 40-45 degrees (that is not 45%, it is 45 degrees). Side cutting is not an issue and when the banks of my pond are completely dry and hard, have even been known to drive along the edge to trim at close to a 45 degree angle, because my rear track is wide. But on wet/damp grass, watch out even on gentle slopes for the front wheels will want to head downhill.Do you go uphill forward or reverse.
