I think you are absolutely right! I am pretty sure with the extra weight I have so low, that I could do steeper slopes without issue. BUT my pucker factor will not let me...LOL.With my BX, I don’t think I’d have an issue mowing Henro’s spot. Doubt I’d take my old Moline on it.
Slopes are really hard to gauge in photos. I might have a different opinion in person.
RCW, I hear you and never meant to imply I thought I was doing something unsafe.Henro - you should NEVER do something with your tractor if you feel unsafe....period.
Don’t come here asking if “is this too much, or not enough?!?”
Even though I said I’d mow that doesn’t make it right for you... I can still hear my mother asking “if your friends were jumping off a cliff, would you do it too?!?”
If your pucker says this is enough, that’s all you need to know!!! I don’t care X-degrees or or X++-degrees.
It’s what you’re comfortable with. 5 degrees is okay, if that’s what works for you.
Not being derogatory at all. Just mean that as as friendly bit of advice.
Folks die on tractors doing stupid things. First indication of “stupid” is listening to that “pucker.”
I’ve driven old farm tractors for 50 years. Sometimes that familiarity is a prelude to recklessness.
I’m still very aware of the capabilities of my machine to avoid catastrophic outcomes.
I try to stay away from the pucker all together.
Best wishes, and stay safe my friend!!
