How To Mow Steep Hills
There are very many things to consider when mowing step hills. The first and most important factor is safety. Using the correct equipment that is properly maintained is required to do the high-risk slope mowing. We are always asked if we can do the work with one of our products and the answer is almost always, "Yes." The things to consider are the angle and condition of the slope, and is the equipment you are using adequate. The operators' ability, weather, soil conditions, and moisture in the soil are also factors to consider.
Slope Mowing Considerations
While the angle is always important, water is a good lubricant for tires under heavy side loads and should be factored into the ability to work on a slope. If the tires are worn or do not have the proper air pressure for the soil conditions that will affect the operation of the unit. At the same time, if the ability of the operator is not up to the requirement, this can contribute to the equipment not getting the work done.
