I think PowerTrac recently went out of business;
They might have declared bankruptcy to consolidate and manage debt but it seems they are still in business

So here I am digging in the Toolcat forum. But I am not finding much info about mowing on hills.
This is a F series Toolcat with a 7 foot wide brush hog on a 26.67 degree slope also called a 50% grade.
The chain hanging from the work light shows true zero degrees vertical:

Keep in mind when you see the high price, it includes the heated and air conditioned cab that you pay extra for on a tractor.

See what else the Toolcat can do here: Toolcat 5610 F and 5610 G Series Pictures

Check out the youtube page GoodWorks Tractors. He has quite a few very very worthy videos on how not to kill yourself on your tractor and how not to destroy your tractor."

Thank you. Will do!

A picture is worn a thousand words! And yes indeed, if I end up buying one, someone else can buy that $25k UTV I have had my eye on!

I can certainly say that I'm happy to be wrong. 👍

Take your time. Don't rush this purchase. It is a very big decision that is going to cost a lot of money. You want to get the right machine for you. Test drive everything, talk to the local neighbors and research, research, research. In the end, I think you are going to end up with two machines to accomplish all the work you want to do on this property. Again, don't rush, I have rushed decisions like this where I ended up selling and rebuying.

I think PowerTrac recently went out of business; they're great machines, but it's something to be aware of.
Where’d you hear that? They are alive and well, made in America in Tazewell, VA!

Really, where’d you hear that?

I'd swear up and down that I heard it here, but I'm in the process of losing my mind so I genuinely do not know.
